This is an amusing romp, in the Ugly Betty style with a touch of French farce, dealing with a priest, who isn’t really a priest, a bunch of Catholic clergy who don’t act very Catholic and emigration to Australia. A wonderful tale of identity theft redemption with an old age home is thrown in for good measure.
It’s yet another one of those books that is terribly good fun, and you don’t want to ruin the plot for anyone planning to read it. While the book is 415 pages, it’s a quick read that never plods or bogs down. It moves along at a wonderful pace, which means this is one of those that might cause a few late nights before you finish it. In the UK, they would call this “a holiday novel,” something that is not too taxing to read while on a beach in some warm destination.
This is just what you need if you are looking for a comedic world-spanning novel with a few twists and turns along the way. Do yourself a favor and seek this one out. You will be very happy you did.Powered by Sidelines
