Casting the Net by Pam Rhodes

Blurb:

Heart-warming English comedy of manners, featuring the trials and tribulations of newly ordained minister, Neil FisherIn part two of the Dunbridge Chronicles, Neil Fisher returns from ordination inspired by his sense of ministry, but determined to distance himself from the two ladies in his life. This is not altogether well received, and a wide segment of the congregation of St Stephen’s, Dunbridge–including the music group–points Neil to the error of his ways.

Meanwhile Neil’s close friend Colin and his wife Jeannie are delighted by the birth of a daughter, but is all well with the baby? Neil’s mother Iris continues to meddle, to his irritation. Churchwarden Peter has said a relieved farewell to his flighty wife Glenda–or has he? Dunbridge is not as peaceful as it seems. 

My thoughts:

I liked this light easy-to-read book that deals with serious issues from the Christian perspective. Life in Dunbridge is far from peaceful and the Neil, the curate has many crises to face, not the least being his vicar’s loss of faith. It’s full of interesting characters, painting a picture of life in a small town.

One thought on “Casting the Net by Pam Rhodes

  1. As I read your post, Margaret, I was thinking that this really seems to depict small-town life nicely . And I like the sound of the characters, too. It sounds like a really pleasant read that works well in between darker, grittier reads?
