Reverend Matthews is the new vicar for a small mining town in England. He’s extremely hesitant about his new post, but soon discovers his predecessor left a ledger in which he wrote all the town peoples’ secrets, some aren’t really secrets as such, while others definitely are.
I really enjoyed reading about all the interesting people of this bustling 1970s mining town, the author does a wonderful job in her character and landscape descriptions, so much so I almost felt like I was there, walking down the road with the vicar.
My only reason for the 4.5 star review has to do with ending, it seemed a bit abrupt and I didn’t feel like the story built up to the reasoning behind it—my apologies as that’s a bit of a spoiler…but I wouldn’t pass this book by for that reason, it was a truly enjoyable read!
Typically I receive books for free in exchange for an honest and unbiased review, however this is a verified purchase.

This surprising pleasantness lasted through the first 11 (of 12) chapters, and I would even have enjoyed a few more chapters in this vein. The author, however, disagreed, and drew it all to a rather abrupt close. An author, of course, knows her characters and their limits better than the reader, but I was disappointed in Reverend Matthews' reaction to the news revealed in chapter 12, feeling it was out of character with the direction of his development.
So it is a good read...much better than average...so you must read it and be the judge of Reverend Matthews - and write your own review!
