A Blessing In Disguise, Paperback / softback Book

A Blessing In Disguise Paperback / softback

Description

Young, attractive, a widow with a ten-year-old daughter - Venus Stanton was certainly not the vicar that the traditional parish of Thurston had been expecting.

The village was agog, the congregation surprised and in some cases not at all pleased.

Venus - a name wished on her by her otherwise conventional parents, and which she felt wholly inappropriate for a woman priest - had to endure curiosity, misunderstandings and even downright hostility.

But she also found warmth, friendship and kindness - sometimes from the most unexpected quarters. Still mourning the death of her husband, and having to cope with the problems of single parenthood, Venus began to think that she would never manage the task she had set herself.

Perhaps the doubters were right - she was not suited to be a vicar, to care for the souls of the parish.

But the handsome local doctor thought otherwise, and so did many others who came to regard her not only as their priest but also their friend.
