Library Ed. Recorded Books 2005
A young curate arrives at his first post with honest views about his religion and the goodness of people. Glen McCready makes the listener feel that the fictional character of Richard Allen is McCready himself. Allen falls in love with the wife of the vicar of the parish, and, through the ensuing travails caused by that love, we stand in the young man's court and are swayed to his side by the sympathy and passion that the narrator expends. Even the descriptions of the weather and countryside of Hereford, as well as the aura of the nineteenth century, are made picturesque by McCready's reading.
