From the Back Cover:

This is an excellent value omnibus edition of the first three books in Fred Secombe's entertaining and nostalgic series. It is comprised of: How Green Was My Curate, A Curate for All Seasons and Goodbye Curate. Set in sleepy Welsh valleys at the close of the Second World War, the books cover the period of Fred's curacy in the village of Pontywen -- from inauspicious but hilarious beginnings (he falls flat on his face at his first service) through his courtship and marriage to young doctor Eleanor, to the point where he becomes a vicar. Quirky, memorable characters abound in these extremely likeable and humorous stories.

About the Author:

Fred Secombe was born in Swansea in 1918 and ordained in 1942. The vicar of various parishes in Wales, and a Prebendary of St. Paul's Cathedral, he was also a founder of three Gilbert and Sullivan societies and won the Waterford International Festival of Light Opera Award for Utopia Ltd in 1968. The elder brother of the late Sir Harry Secombe, he now lives in Cardiff.
