Book Review: "Mr. Chartwell"
I can't bring to mind another book quite like Rebecca Hunt's Mr. Chartwell(Dial Press, 2011). Young librarian Esther Hammerhans and the retired Winston Churchill are united here by a mysterious and not-entirely-welcome stranger, the black dog Mr. Chartwell. Imaginative, different, and filled with an interesting cast of characters and some improbably humorous moments, Mr. Chartwell is a neat read about an unexpected topic.
