Chronicles of an English town

Pam Rhodes will be familiar to many as the presenter for many years of Songs of Praise. One of the most genuinely popular religious programmes on television. But she is also the author of some five novels. This book however is the first in a new series, relating the chronicles of a small English town. This novel is a sort of Anglican counterpart to My New Curate relating the adventures or rather misadventures of Neil Fishers not only with his rector but with the local people in particular four local women who include his own mother, who does not care to have a clergyman in the family. Troubles ensue. Light, amusing, but at heart dealing with serious enough issues of faith and friendship and family, this cosy novel will appeal to many.
