Saints & Sailors by Pam Rhodes Review

About the book:

Fourth in the Dunbridge Chronicles series, Neil Fisher's old and new congregations come together on a cruise round the British Isles

Three groups of people come together for a more-or-less godly cruise around the British Isles to visit Lindisfarne, the Loch Ness Monster Museum, the isles of Iona and Mull, Dublin, and the Scilly Isles. There are familiar faces from St Stephens, Dunbridge; some new folk from Neil’s new parish in Derbyshire; and the slightly long-suffering crew, not least its skipper.

A cruise is a great place to make new friends, with leisure for decent conversations. It can also be an awkward, confined space with those you would really rather avoid. Some of the party face tough decisions--not least of which is whether to say "yes"--and some tensions just cannot be left on land.

This book is a delight, full of compassion, humor, and Pam Rhodes's astute observations.

My review;

Author Pam Rhodes has written another book in her series called "The Dunbridge Chronicles" called  "Saints & Sailors". This is Book 4 in the series.  Vicar Neil Fisher is going on a cruise and he has new and old parishioners aboard. This the story of their cruise. While they are on the ship they meet new people and they learn a lot about each other. I really liked this story and I, as before in other books in this series liked the characters. This was a very nice book to read and it gave insight into what a Christian cruise is like. I give this book a 4/5. I was given this book for a review by Kregel  Publications. and these are my opinions.
