This is the 10th book in this gentle, humorous series about Fred Secombe's life as a Vicar in Abergelly, Wales. The story begins with one of the churches in Fred's parish being desecrated-- the cross smashed to pieces--and another burned to the ground. The local police force work with Fred to solve the mystery of this vandal who bears a grudge against Christianity. In the wake of the crime, there is uproar at the Archdeacon's reactionary measures, but Fred finds himself in the gleeful position of being able to side with his clergy against the old tyrant. A Palm Sunday outing for the children of the Bryfelin Estate turns to a drunken afternoon for their irresponsible parents; but Fred's spirits are lifted as he takes the wedding service of his curate, Hugh -- a wet, but thoroughly happy occasion. These are just a few of the delightful tales that Secombe relates, which will doubtless keep his readers happily amused.About the Author:
