THANK HEAVENS FOR AUTHORS LIKE CHRISTOPHER TULL!
Greener Grows the Grass
Just over a year ago Newton Abbot publisher, Chrissie Young, took one look at Christopher Tull’s manuscript, realised it was a winner, and the result was his best-selling book IN PASTURES GREEN. Christopher, a semi-retired vicar, has fast become established as one of the West Country’s favourite authors and now a sequel has just been published – GREENER GROWS THE GRASS. The setting for both books is the fictional parish of Ashenridge with five other parishes gradually coming under the care of the main character, the Reverend Jack Longfield. Both books are filled with memorable West Country tales, such as The Haccident, ‘Tis Kitty, Blizzards and Blows, Charity Ends at Home, ‘Tiddn’ All Bad and Nellie Mycock’s Telephone.

REVIEWS of GREENER GROWS THE GRASS:
‘A gem of a book from a jewel of a storyteller. Memorable characters leap off every page and the stories are full of the flavours of the West Country’ Books For You
‘Fans of Christopher Tull’s first book, In Pastures Green? are sure to enjoy this sequel with another dose of escapism in the company of fictitious rector Jack Longfield as he tiptoes his way through the minefield of caring for six rural parishes…And while some things may have changed in village life, human nature, it will be noted, remains pretty much the same’ Western Morning News
