Major Pettigrew's Last Stand Chapter 9

By Helen Simonson

Chapter 9

  • The Major, Mrs. Ali, and Grace meet Mrs. Rasool, Mrs. Ali's friend, who will help with the catering. They agree on a menu and try a bunch of yummy samples.
  • Mrs. Rasool has also recruited a friend named Saadia Khan to help. Mrs. Ali doesn't seem to like her very much.
  • Mrs. Khan brings along her assistant Noreen as well as Noreen's niece to help with fabrics and things.
  • The niece turns out to be Amina, who is the young Indian woman the Major and Mrs. Ali encountered on their walk last week.
  • It seems that Amina might know Mrs. Ali's nephew, Abdul Wahid, but Mrs. Ali says they're not acquainted.
  • Mrs. Khan agrees with Grace on a deal for fabrics, hoping she can wrangle a membership to the exclusive club. The Major doesn't believe that Daisy or the committee will ever allow that.
