Neil Fisher's first trip to Dunbridge was not a success. Having inadvertently locked himself in St Stephen's Church for hours (and succumbing to the communion wine and wafers for dinner) it seemed miraculous they gave him the curate's job! On arrival in the small town of Dunbridge it quickly becomes clear that life is not going to be tranquil for the eligible new bachelor, as four formidable women are determined to make their presence felt. There is his mother, Iris, still questioning his choice of career; his rector, the no-nonsense Margaret, who is not one for taking prisoners; Claire, his new neighbour, whom he's already managed to offend. And then there is Wendy, the beautiful leading light of the church music group, who has her own plans for Neil: It can only end in trouble.

A social comedy with spiritual resonance and depth. -- Pam Rhodes * Woman Alive * Populated by likeable, strong characters, this is an enjoyable read from the former Songs of Praise presenter turned novelist. * Choice Magazine * "Light, amusing, but at heart dealing with serious enough issues of faith and friendship and family, this cosy novel will appeal to many." * The Irish Catholic * Light, amusing, but at heart dealing with serious enough issues of faith and friendship and family, this cosy novel will appeal to many. -- Not Available * The Irish Catholic * Pam is an acute and affectionate observer of parish life. She makes me chuckle and she makes me cry, sometimes with laughter and sometimes with sadness at the poignancy she captures as she describes the utterly exhausting and ever-varied life of her curate hero. I so much wanted to know what happened to this all too human and likeable chap that I read all three novels off one after the other. -- Barbara Erskine
