Casting the Net

Full Product Description

Casting the Net is Pam Rhodes' second instalment in her heartwarmingly sweet and old fashioned Dunbridge Chronicle trilogy.

In this light-hearted and unashamed english comedy, Pam's compilation of  snapshot-length chapters each contribute a story in the trials and tribulations of newly ordained minister, Neil Fisher.

Weaving together the lives of the village characters, Songs of Praise favourite, Pam Rhodes, leads you gently, sensitively and humorously through the tangle of competing demands and relationships which face us all from time to time.

Her  lovingly created characters have to face happiness and heartache, loss and grief, sickness, abandonment and even divorce, and then try and live out the faith they seek to find or profess.

There's a lot of grace, humility and love to be discovered in this little community that can teach us all a thing or two about living with eachothers faults and failings.

At the heart of the story is Neil, a newly ordained Anglican priest with many problems. Mostly caused - and solved, by there being so many women in his life. Neil is torn between Wendy and Claire. Wendy would be a perfect helpmeet, but there are no sparks between them. Claire generates a lot of sparks, but is less than ideal for a priest -  considering that she is an atheist.

The characters are fascinating and frustrating; with all the human surprises and twists in their lives that reflect our own. And running through it all is the redemptive power of God's saving grace.

Casting the Net by Pam Rhodes was published by Lion Hudson in February 2014 and is our 5554th best seller. The ISBN for Casting the Net is 9781782640622.

Publisher's Description

Heartwarming English comedy of manners, featuring the trials and tribulations of newly ordained minister, Neil Fisher

In part two of the Dunbridge Chronicles, Neil Fisher returns from ordination inspired by his sense of ministry, but determined to distance himself from the two ladies in his life. This is not altogether well received, and a wide segment of the congregation of St Stephen's, Dunbridge including the music group points Neil to the error of his ways.

Meanwhile Neil's close friend Colin and his wife, Jeannie, are delighted by the birth of a daughter, but is all well with the baby? Neil's mother Iris continues to meddle, to his irritation. Churchwarden Peter has said a relieved farewell to his flighty wife Glenda,or has he? Dunbridge is not as peaceful as it seems.


"Light, amusing, but at heart dealing with serious issues of faith and friendship and family." - The Irish Catholic.

"Social comedy with resonance and depth." - Woman Alive.

"Describes the ups and down of parish life with humour and a good ear for dialogue ... a good read, and anyone who enjoyed the TV series Rev will enjoy it too."  - Peggy Woodford, Church Times.
