The newcomer

20 September 2019
Written by: Fern Britton
Review by: Dee Atkinson
Genre: General Fiction

Set in Cornwall. The village is saying goodbye to its parish vicar and his wife.

Newcomer, Reverend Angela Whitehorn wants to make a difference and with her husband wants to shake things up a bit.

Angela wants to support the female parishioners through good and bad, but she does start to receive poison pen letters letting her know she is not welcome and which start to become increasingly personal, particularly when it involves her husband.

The vicarage is very busy and there are lots of events to keep Angela busy, but the notes are becoming more frequent and point to infidelity.

Written in an easy readable style. There is a happy ending after the drama, and a touch of sadness too.
