Light spine and covers creases, light edgewear, book slightly cocked. Pages pale brown, edges a bit darker; pages clean, none loose. ; The first novel of the series. Set in the Welsh valleys at the close of the Second World War, we are introduced to Fred, a young curate, new to the village of Pontywen. His adventures are often quite humourous and we especially loved his landlady, Mrs. Richards...aka Mrs. Malaprop. The author was a curate and later a vicar in various parishes in Wales so his novels of a curate's life have an authentic ring to them. Recommended. ; Recommended by Beth H. of the DES email discussion group.
