I am not sure where I picked up this book, possibly from a conversation on facebook or a tweet but as someone born and bred in Sussex, not so far from Singleton, where the main character of the book hails from, I had to give it a go.

The development of the main character from a "lost" vicar to a man of God who finally finds his place in life is a string story line. I really like the ...more

Multilayered, well thought-out, and beautifully woven. I don't read an abundance of literary fiction, but this novel kept me engrossed from beginning to end--and what an ending.

Reviewed at with 4 out of 4 stars. I received a complimentary copy of this book for an honest review.
