Margaret Walker's teenage dream was to be a vicar's wife. But was life in the vicarage what she expected when she set out to enmesh and marry a would-be vicar? Tears of laughter, tears of compassion, tears of joy and tears of sorrow have followed her through assorted flavours of Yorkshire life to Wales and into semi-retirement. The emotions come flooding back as she recalls the tales "that shouldn't happen to a vicar's wife" with an enchanting humour that is guaranteed to endear her to you. This lovely must-read book tells of Margaret's life of devotion - to God, to vicar Husband Michael and to more cucumber sandwiches than are strictly necessary. Not to mention that one recurrent theme. Ah, yes. The fishnet tights. There's no escaping those fishnet tights. Just when you thought it was safe to go back to Church ...
