The Girls' Book of Priesthood by Louise Rowland




The Girls' book of Priesthood is a novel.  I don't think the title suits the book – it makes it sound like non-fiction. 

Instead it is a story about a new Anglican curate who has to complete a year successfully at a London church before she can be ordained.

It is a gentle wry story that I enjoyed reading.  The setting felt very authentic to me.  The heroine Margot is also an appealing but quirky person affected by a less than perfect background… I can relate to that.

  1. Nice! Though I am no longer a believer, I was raised to be one and still enjoy books about people who have faith.

  2. I'd like this though the title seems ambiguous
