Series: Bless Me, Father

Publisher's Description

From the series that inspired the hit London Weekend Television sitcom Bless Me, Father: At St. Jude’s, silent nights are rare indeed

The holiday season is among the most hectic times at St. Jude’s, and this one is no exception. As always, Father Neil has his hands full with the gleefully domineering, scheming Father Duddleswell, who has devised a fresh plan for this coming Christmas: invite all the other sects of Christianity to celebrate with them. The plan quickly unravels when two religious leaders from another denomination try to convert Father Neil and a clock goes missing from the mantelpiece. When the church collection disappears, it becomes abundantly clear that this will be no ordinary Christmas.
 
Taken from the author’s actual experiences after completing seminary, A Father Before Christmas is a fun and family-friendly romp through a bygone era with a winning cast of characters you will want to visit again and again. Boyd’s well-crafted vignettes of the Christmas season make this a holiday present worth opening early.

Author Bio

Neil Boyd is a pseudonym of Peter de Rosa.

In 1978 he became a full-time writer, publishing the acclaimed Bless Me, Father, which was subsequently turned into a television series. De Rosa went on to write several more successful novels in the Bless Me, Father series. He lives in Bournemouth, England. 

Editorial Reviews

"A long, gentle breeze of humour with frequent bursts of helpless laughter. Neil Boyd has an almost divine gift for extricating deeply satisfying fun from tiny things. . . . Wonderful, real, lovable characters." —James Herriot
 
"Neil Boyd finds himself the creator of one of the major comic characters of the decade, the irascible but lovable old Irish priest, Father Duddleswell." —Daily Express
