About the Author-

Pamela Rhodes has written several other novels.  For many years she has presented the BBC’s Songs of Praise.

My thoughts-

I've read and enjoyed two of the other books in this series, Casting the Net and If You Follow Me.  I enjoyed going with Neil and his current and former parishioners on their pilgrimage around the coast of Britain. 

I liked the list of characters at the beginning of the book.  The list helped me know where each of the characters were from and how they related to one another.  Character lists really help when there are a lot in the book.  I wish there had a list of the chapters.  Each chapter had a title that gave their location.  It would have nice to be able to go easily to the chapter I was interested in checking out again.

Pam Rhodes did an excellent job of combining the two parishes and parishioners.  They all had such different characteristics.  I liked all of the characters, but I think my two favorite were Mark and Deidre.  They had been friends, and on this trip they grew closer.  Mark was so supportive when they went to Dublin to see the family Deidre hadn't seen for years.  I really liked to seeing that type of relationship in this book.

I liked this book.  I always enjoy reading the books that Pam Rhodes writes, and I hope you enjoy them too.
