Mr. Rosenblum is a Jewish refugee who fled to England from Germany before the outbreak of WWII. He longs to be accepted as a true Englishman. As a profitable businessman, he buys the correct Savile Row suit, a Jaguar, and shops at Fortnum & Mason. But his Jewish background prevents his membership into a golf club, for him the ultimate sign of an English gentleman. In desperation he decides to build his own golf course which proves to be a greater endeavor than anticipated. The character is exasperating at times, but heartwarming overall, especially when you learn the author is writing about her grandfather.
