This is a deliciously entertaining Cinderella story for grown-ups. Over sixty years after her first appearance in 1938, Miss Pettigrew is still a delight, and is now charming a new circle of twenty-first century readers. It has been reprinted by Persephone Books in a facsimile edition, which includes the glorious original line drawings.

Synopsis:

Miss Guinevere Pettigrew, a gentlewoman spinster approaching middle-age has been working as a governess to make ends meet, but a succession of appalling employers has left her down-trodden. Then one morning, owing to a mix-up at her employment agency, she is sent for an interview with a Miss LaFosse, a glamorous but dissolute cabaret artiste, who is seeking a new maid. Despite the moral and social gulfs between them, a surprising bond is formed, and by the end of the day, both their lives have been entirely transformed.

About the Author:

Winifred Watson (1907-2002) lived in Newcastle and wrote six novels in all; she chose to stop writing after the birth of her son in 1941. The Times interviewed her at age 94 when Persephone Books reissued the book in 2000. The headline was "Bodice-Ripping Fame at 94."
