    I take my hat off to Fred Secombe, as he faces some real pastoral dilemmas, including the behaviour of his former curate. The characters are found in every parish, but with different names.I loved the synthesis of wonderful humour and his gifted way of telling his story . The welsh word for "spirit" in the enthusiatic way the word is meant is "hywl" and this book abounds with it. Fred comes across as a passionate vicar, enthralled with his vocation, and so lucky to have such a capable and understanding wife to support him. Eleanor almost steals the book!!The best part of the book for me was the end , when they both decide that their calling is to leave their comfort in Pontywen, and to take up the Bishop's gauntlet at Abergelly. I think that was a real touch of Abraham leaving Ur.I whole heartedly would recommend the whole series to you. I've dropped short of a 5 Star rating simply because in the context of the series I think one or two of the volumnes have outshone it, but not by much. The overall standard is excellent. I commend them to you, especially if you're looking for a book to take on holidays.

    A classic tongue in cheek story of a vicars life, taken as true with name changes to protect the innocent!! great fun.
