TOTAL ENTERTAINMENT Te World is A Wedding - by Wendy Jones Paul: 07580 652 163 Ian: 07500 294198


entertaining book is the sequel to the author’s debut novel The Thoughts and Happenings of Wilfred Price. Although the author sketches the background and characters out with considerable skill and evident warmth, not having read the first novel was a distinct disadvantage in trying to


pick up the threads of the continuing narrative. That said, given the episodic nature of the novel – I was easily able to visualise the story as a television drama – made it relatively easy to develop a rapport with the main characters.


The book errs on the side of


sentiment but that does not undermine its charm and good humour. While


Jon Coles


I confess that this type of fiction is neither targeted at my demographic nor my usual choice of reading material, I appreciated the author’s craft and her affectionate take on Pembrokeshire’s rural life.


Spending a few hours with Wilfred Price was ultimately an enjoyable way to spend the time.
