Overview

The country church of St. Stephen's, Dunbridge, under the leadership of the formidable Rev. Margaret Prowse, is getting a new curate. The whole congregation is abuzz as the shy but earnest Neil Fisher arrives to take up his very first post.

Though intimidated by Margaret, he is determined to overcome his shyness and immediately sets out to meet the congregation. As often occurs when a man of the cloth is single, his mission becomes somewhat sidetracked when his attention is first drawn to Ros, the spiky single mum who looks after the vicarage garden, and then commandeered by Wendy, leader of the church music group, who is determined to bag herself a vicar for a husband. And if that isn't enough, he also has to contend with his opinionated mother, who strongly disapproves of her son's vocation.

Featuring a charming mix of colorful characters, Fisher of Men transports readers to the quaint village of Dunbridge where the quiet miracle of life is revealed.

Readers who miss Jan Karon’s Father Tim and Mitford Years series have a new church to attend: St. Stephen’s, Dunbridge, somewhere in the bucolic English countryside. Curate Neil Fisher is learning the ropes of parish work. Rev. Margaret Prowse helps him get to know the parishioners and their sorrows and needs. He also comes to know not one but two attractive but very different women: Claire, an atheist, single-mom gardener and neighbor, and Wendy, the highly focused leader of the church music group. A certain amount of Rhodes’s story is ready-made, with unhappily married people and sweet old ladies among the plot complications. Still, it doesn’t take much to lure in Anglophiles during these Downton Abbey days, and readers of wholesome inspirational novels won’t be at all bothered by the 1950 feel of the life depicted. The novel has its charms, including crisp dialogue and the promise of more action, as the Dunbridge Chronicles series continues.(Apr.)
