Full Product Description

- Pam Rhodes' gentle novel is a perfect tea-and-biscuit read
- Be delighted with this story of a tv broadcast bringing a small community to life
This is a sparkling novel about the "BBC Songs of Praise" team recording a "Palm Sunday" broadcast from a small idyllic Suffolk village. As the outside broadcast vehicles roll in, ambitions and emotions run high. Producer Jan Harding finds the vicar, Clive Linton, hopelessly absent-minded. His practical wife Helen gets on well with the television team - perhaps a little too well, where the charming, enigmatic rigger Michael is concerned. Charles, chairman of the Parish Council, is deeply opposed and resents the enthusiasm of other villagers - including his wife Betty. Bunty Maddocks, queen of every local committee, plots to get round the ban on church flowers during Lent; retired, lonely accountant Jack Diggens finds purpose, faith and friendship as he plans tickets and seating; and teenage soloist Anna surprises herself with her success. This delightful story will make you laugh and cry and gives a fascinating insight into the making of "Songs of Praise".

With Hearts and Hymns and VoicesZoë Stevenson, via The Good Book Stall
What a gift Pam has. I loved this book it was so funny. If you have ever grown up having some idea of Songs of Praise and village life this book is definitely a winner. If on the other hand you’ve not been ‘blessed’ (or maybe you were unfortunate) with village life but grew up in a town this gives you the low down on village life and just how fickle people can be.
Pam’s style of writing is easy to read and well balanced between characters. The story is set around the BBC coming to a little Suffolk village to broadcast their last episode of Songs of Praise’s lent series– ‘Village Praise’. Additional stories between characters are included which keep you gripped wanting to know what was going to happen between them and the impact this may have on the broadcast.
I particularly liked Pam’s sense of humour and the way she even wrote from a donkey’s angle – for me this had to be one of the best belly laughs I have had in a while. Need a pick me up and just a good all-round entertaining read? Then warm up your larynx and sing along with the classic hymns as they are rehearsed and recorded for ‘Village Praise’.
