This entertaining collection of short stories is based on Sheila McMillan’s experiences as she was trying to fit in as a ‘proper’ clergy wife in a country town in Northern Ireland, from her first experience of presiding over a meeting of the Women’s League to the consequences of a burglary of their family home. It was during the 1970s, a time when the Troubles cast their shadow over every corner of the province, but the unrest is touched on only briefly and without bias. Sheila has focussed on the amusing episodes as she and her husband William take up their duties in the community while bringing up a family of four children.
