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.
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.
Neil Fisher is the new curate for St. Stephen's Church in Dunbridge, England. A 25-year-old bachelor, Neil is faced with all of the challenges and lessons of a new curate. Please see the book description for an in-depth synopsis of the book.
Fisher of Men is a charming story of coming of age for Neil as he transitions from student to curate, and proceeds in discovering life with its joys and disappointments. The characters throughout the book are delightful and varied, eccentric and annoying. Poignant and amusing, the story portrays humanness, wit, sensitivity and compassion. The cast of characters is eclectic. The setting is quite stunning, with descriptive elements that enhance the plot. Relationships play a very significant role in the lives of the parishioners of St. Stephen's Church. I enjoyed this easy read, but was disappointed at the abrupt ending to the book. This is not a stand alone novel, but the first in a series of books that need to be read as such. I enjoyed Neil's journey from curate to his threshold to the priesthood.
