The Man Who Fell in Love with His Wife Summary

The Man Who Fell in Love with His Wife by Paul Burke

Frank Dempsey is back - but this time as a father of a very different kind! Newly-wed Frank Dempsey, a former non-believing Catholic priest, can now luxuriate in the sublime joys of his wife's arms and the paradise of silk versus sackcloth. Yet Frank isn't off-duty from charitable deeds - when he isn't driving his black cab for a local taxi firm, he is in hot demand to speak at weddings, christenings and funerals. Or to inspire people to flock to the dancefloor with his skills as a DJ. From the Big Apple to the bitten apple, Frank soon discovers that the tempting sins of the flesh have consequences; when Frank becomes a real father, he realises he is going to need a miracle to feed the five thousand!
