“Don’t let this delightfully frothy drawing-room comedy get lost between the sofa cushions.”-Salon.com

“ Miss Pettigrew is irresistible, a perfect mix of wistfulness and joy, substance and froth.”-Tracy Chevalier, author of Girl with a Pearl Earring

“ Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day is perhaps the happiest, most ebullient piece of fiction ever written for adults.”- Newsday

Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day is now available as an audio book read by Academy Award–winning actress Frances McDormand, who stars in the film as the down-and-out governess Miss Pettigrew, who finds herself caught up in the life of Delysia LaFloss, a glamorous aspiring actress played by Amy Adams.

Winifred Watson (1907–2002) grew up in Newcastle and was a secretary until, in 1935, she married Leslie Pickering, the manager of a timber firm. She wrote six novels in all, but after the birth of her son in 1941, she stopped writing and lived quietly in Newcastle for the rest of her life.
