Young Neil Boyd has just finished divinity school and has been newly ordained as a priest. His first post? St. Judes parish, a corner of London with a raucous congregation full of Irish immigrants. The flock is an odd pairing with the gentle Father Boyd, but he just might be both mad enough and tender enough to get through to them.
Later adapted into a beloved British sitcom, Bless Me, Father is a humorous and sweet-natured look at Catholicism in the 1950s. Joining Boyd is the cantankerous, scheming, and brilliant Father Duddleswell, a man who is willing to do anything to make sure the Lords will be done, and Mrs. Pring, the sharp-tongued housekeeper who both coddles and cajoles her priestly family of two. If the church needs money, Duddleswell will place a bet to get it. If a Catholic wants to marry a Protestant . . . well, maybe he wont go that far.
Father Neils adventures with his parishioners are sure to delight readers of all creeds.
"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
