Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day

Finished Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day by Winifred Watson. A best seller from 1939, it has recently been made into a film. I haven't seen the film yet. This is a Cinderella story of a shy, down on her luck spinster who is sent to the wrong address for a job interview. This mistake changes her entire life in one day. It's a charming, funny, fast-paced read. The edition I read is a reissue by Persephone Books. It includes the original line drawing illustrations. This is a fun, rainy day book.
