Side note: I noticed you read Major Pettigrew's Last Stand. We're reading that for book club this month and I am loving it. Only about halfway through though.
It didn't post my other comment (grr)What I said was:I love Miss Maya.
I love Miss Maya, too. Major Pettigrew is a delightful read but I don't want to tell you what I loved best about it since you are still in progress. Enjoy!
