Win a copy of Don Keeye’s Tale

book cover

By Sussex author John Emmaus

Preparing for marriage to a passionate fiancée is enough for some young men. Coinciding with preparing to become a church curate is more than enough for Don Keeye.

Into the close of the twentieth-century world of volatile moral attitudes he and extrovert Anna Rye boldly go. On an enlightening holiday in France they find themselves clashing with highway villains at Taizé and people-smugglers at St-Tropez, administering TLC to vulnerable friends and strangers alike. Then they return home to another challenge at college and survive some rather unusual job interviews.

Enjoy a holiday adventure abroad without travel hassle!
