Our bookshelf choice for August is Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day, by Winifred Watson, published by Persephone Books

Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day

 

Written in 1938, the story begins when Miss Pettigrew is sent to the wrong address by an employment agency.  She meets Miss LaFosse, a nightclub singer, and her wonderful day – and the rest of her life – begins.

Heartwarming and great fun, in 2008 it was made into a film starring Frances McDormand and Amy Adams.
