    a four-star read that will welcome you in

    The Newcomer by Fern Britton a four-star read that will welcome you in. This isn’t the first novel set in the great little Cornish village of Pendruggan but you don’t need to have read any of them as they do all tell a different story. You will feel like you are there in the village, the descriptions are so good you can picture everything so well. This one will suck you in as its not just how you imagine its going to be, there is a drama and darkness at times in the story, so don’t go in thinking its all sunny and right in Cornwall.

    The newcomer

    Loved it. You are made to feel one of the community and one I would love to live in. Full of love, laughter, intrigue along with some sorrow. A brilliant read.

    A Wonderful Visit with Old and New Friends, 5 Star

    In Ms Fern Britton’s latest book The Newcomer, Reverend Simon Canter and his wife Penny are taking a year-long placement in Brazil, leaving the parish of Pendruggan needing a temporary Reverend, welcome Reverend Angela Whitehorn, her husband Robert, daughter Faith and colourful Aunt Mamie. This secondment is Angela’s first placement since becoming fully ordained and she is desperate to make a good lasting impression; including introducing a host of new activities/clubs to the villagers, which isn’t initially well received by everyone in the village. Although it isn’t long that amongst the many new activities including the Running Club, Animal Blessings, the Pendruggan Association of Ladies and of course the Big Village Pond Dig that both the villagers (and readers alike) full in love with the newest albeit temporary addition to their village. I don’t want to include any spoilers but the book opens with a life-changing traumatic event which we are then gently guided through the events that culminate to that fateful night. As always when exploring so many characters you can expect laughter and tears and Ms Britton has covered the subjects addressed with her own uniquely sympathetic and sensitive style. Although this book is part of a ‘series’ it is possible to read as a standalone in its own right. However, I will warn you that once you visit the wonderful fictional village of Pendruggan it is like visiting with old friends (both the wonderful and quirky) and you will find yourself wanting to visit again and again, making this latest addition a definite must read for all fans of Ms Britton’s writing both new and old! For your information, I received my copy as an ARC however, this does not influence my opinions as all opinions are my own.

    Brilliant, as usual

    I always enjoy Fern Brittons books, as she writes in a way that draws you into the story.and you cannot wait to find out what happens. This story had a few surprises that I was not expecting.
