Fisher of Men
The first in the The Dunbridge Chronicles trilogy
A social comedy with spiritual resonance and depth, Fisher of Men will have you laughing out loud and will draw you into the character and charm of Dunbridge life. Lion Fiction March 22 , 2013 Paperback
Arriving in the picturesque town of Dunbridge to take up his first curacy at St Stephens, the young Neil Fisher is not quite sure what to expect. Shy, kind and earnest, he is keen to make a good impression before his ordination to become a fully-qualified priest. But, on meeting the formidable Revd Margaret Prowse and the colourful array of village characters, he realises he has been well and truly thrown into the deep end of Dunbridge life.
Taken under Margaret's wing, Neil soon finds himself an ear for the villagers' assortment of problems and life troubles. Firstly there's the terrifying Glenda Fellowes and her long-suffering husband Peter, the church warden who is struggling to remain true to his wedding vows. Then there's Graham - thirty something, slightly overweight and looking for love. Can Neil make him realise that what he's searching for may have been under his nose all along?
On top of all this, Neil has problems of his own - his demanding and disapproving mother, for a start- not to mention the advances of the beguiling, but determined, Wendy. When tragedy strikes his beloved elderly neighbour Harry, can Neil be there to support Harry's niece Claire, whilst keeping their relationship purely platonic? The year rushes on with its delightful mix of summer fetes, Harvest Festivals, carol services, funerals, weddings and pastoral visits - but as Neil prepares for his Ordination, does he have a completely clear conscience?
