"Father Neil Boyd, a young, naive English priest, finds both humor and poignancy as curate of a West London parish. Father Neil shares the spotlight with Father Duddleswell, the wily old Irish priest who is his superior and mentor, and with Mrs. Pring, their crotchety housekeeper. Readers of the previous volumes of the saga of St. Jude's parish ---- Bless Me, Father and Father in a Fix ---- will need no introduction to the delightful trio, and newcomers are definitely in for a treat. In Father Under Fire, as ever, Father Neil faces problems not foreseen in his theological training. The uneasy peace of the parish is rudely disturbed by the arrival of Father Abe ---- Father Duddleswell's own mentor and a formidable old boy with a salty tongue and a passion for whiskey." Size: 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall. Bookseller Inventory # 035487

About this title


This book is really funny. This book is about three Catholic fathers who served Irish immigrants. One is grouchy, Father Duddleswell; one is young, Father Neil who keeps the senior father out of trouble; and Father Abe, an old drinking, smoking, and gambling father getting up in age. They sell Holy Water for fertility, keep undertakers from fighting, and put up with the pushy bishop. They also help to let old Father Abe do services. Funniest book I've ever read in some time.(Amazon customer)
