Product Description

Neil Fisher's first trip to Dunbridge was not a success. Having inadvertently locked himself in St Stephen's Church for hours (and succumbing to the communion wine and wafers for dinner) it seemed miraculous they gave him the curate's job! On arrival in the small town of Dunbridge it quickly becomes clear that life is not going to be tranquil for the eligible new bachelor, as four formidable women are determined to make their presence felt. There is his mother, Iris, still questioning his choice of career; his rector, the no-nonsense Margaret, who is not one for taking prisoners; Claire, his new neighbour, whom he's already managed to offend. And then there is Wendy, the beautiful leading light of the church music group, who has her own plans for Neil. It can only end in trouble.

Publisher's Description

The country church of St. Stephen's, Dunbridge, under the leadership of the formidable Rev. Margaret Prowse, is getting a new curate. The whole congregation is abuzz as the shy but earnest Neil Fisher arrives to take up his very first post.

Though intimidated by Margaret, he is determined to overcome his shyness and immediately sets out to meet the congregation. As often occurs when a man of the cloth is single, his mission becomes somewhat sidetracked when his attention is first drawn to Ros, the spiky single mum who looks after the vicarage garden, and then commandeered by Wendy, leader of the church music group, who is determined to bag herself a vicar for a husband. And if that isn't enough, he also has to contend with his opinionated mother, who strongly disapproves of her son's vocation.

Featuring a charming mix of colorful characters, Fisher of Men transports readers to the quaint village of Dunbridge where the quiet miracle of life is revealed.

    Fisher of Men by Pam Rhodes is the first in a series called the Dunbridge Chronicles. This book takes place in St. Stephen's, in Dunbridge. The church becomes atwitter when Neil Fisher is made the new curate. This shy man is apprehensive with the outspoken Rev. Margaret Prowse and the constant comments from hi sown mother. He is also a target for all the unwed women of this church.

    The interaction of the characters in this book made me cry tears of laughter and concern.

    This is a fun read for most people. I was given this book by bookfun.org and Kregel Publications in exchange for my honest review.

    Fisher of Men is an entertaining coming of age story. It describes the life of Neil Fisher as he takes his first job as curate in the church. The decriptions of the people and settings are so in depth you feel you are a part of the story. I enjoyed the first of hopefully many in the series to come.

    I recieved the book from the Book Club Network in exchange for my honest opinion.

    This was funny and cute. I did not want to put down. It was fun to read about people in a small town and how they can react to each other. I am so looking forward to the next in this series. I need to know what happens with all these characters. I received this from bookfun.org for a fair and honest opinion.

    curate, Neil Fisher. Neil is an only son who joined the seminary

    against his mothers wishes. He is determine to be ordained after

    he completes his year as a curate. Neil is shy but soon learns

    The author captured the attitudes and social realities of the times.

    The dialogue is full of humor, smart, quirky and fun.

    Neil becomes familiar with handling elderly home visits, choir

    and childrens program. He learns to conduct funerals, wedding

    and all general pastoral services. He learns to show compassion

    while he develops a listening ear to all type problem. And he finds

    himself the fancy of several female parishioners.

    This story is a quick read that shows how God lets everything

    work out at the right time.

    Thank you to book fun.org for this Book. My opinion is my own.

    This was a fun read. The author did a great job of developing all the characters so that you get swept into their lives through the eyes of Neil, the new Curate. There is plenty of charm, humor, and even some serious moments in this heartwarming story. I am already looking forward to reading the next book in the series.

    I received a copy of this book from The Book Club Network and the publishers in exchange for my honest review which I have given.
