Overview
-

Anthea Dove tells the fictitious story of the life of a Catholic priest in a large and busy parish in rural northern England. This is a delightful book which conveys the atmosphere of a typical English rural parish, from the conflicts of the parochial house, to the very varied lives of the parishioners. The book is full of believable characters whose stories will captivate the reader. A mother and grandmother, and lifelong questioning Catholic, Anthea draws on her long experience to describe the people and the issues, the successes and the failures, the relationships and the quandaries, the tragic and the funny: all the ingredients which make up the world of a typical parish priest. This story illustrates many of the challenges facing both clergy and congregations in today's rapidly changing world. Anthea Dove lives with her husband near the sea in North Yorkshire. A former teacher, she has written many Christian books and has a strong commitment to working for social justice and ecumenism.
