Behind the book

Father Okoli dreams of owning a flock of hens and studying for a PhD, when his bishop saddles him with yet another parish to look after.
But as Father moves to Moreton-on-the-Edge, a farming village in the English Cotswolds, he’s plugged into a community of warm-hearted characters, from the motherly parish secretary to her septuagenarian neighbour who’s become a cycling champion, and from teenagers requiring driving lessons to atheist publicans who believe in miracles.
Between a wacky race and a scarecrow competition, a village fête and a mop fair, Father foils cattle rustlers, fends off foxes and goes viral on the internet. As the community pulls together to reopen the village’s Electric Picture House, dreams are fulfilled, teen love blossoms and Father Okoli feels that Moreton-on-the-Edge is now home.

Divided into thirty-one short self-contained small chapters, this book is ideal for your coffee break.
