Format: Hardcover
Father Under Fire is a hilarious book about life in a 1950's Roman Catholic Parish in England. The characters are warm and easy to love. The stories are very descriptive and vivid. You will feel as though you are there in the rectory of the parish of St. Jude.
After I read the first story I could not put the book down. I cannot wait to read the other books in the series. It is truly one of my favorite books.
I wish the book would be brought back into print. It is truly a shame to have this wonderful book overlooked.

8 of 8 people found the following review helpful By David Zampino VINE VOICE on February 9, 2005
Format: Hardcover
. . .to Neil Boyd's "Bless Me, Father" series.

In this volume, we are treated to a new character, the cigar smoking, horse-playing (yet truly and tenderly devout) Fr. Abe. So in addition to the adventures and misadventures of Fr. Neil, Fr. Duddleswell, Mrs. Pring, and company, when Fr. Abe comes to stay -- look out (for your funny bone!)

Like "Father in a Fix", not all the anecdotes related here are funny. Some are moving, and a few are downright tragic. Through it all, the humanity of "Fr. Neil"'s early days as a priest shine through.

A very enjoyable read.
