This review is from: The Thoughts and Happenings of Wilfred Price, Purveyor of Superior Funerals (Kindle Edition)
This is a thoroughly delightful tale which deserves to be widely read. The narrative centres on the eponymous Wilfred Price. In his innocence, integrity and simple dignity Wilfred reminds us of the importance of these values, and made me wonder if they are as present today as they were in the early twentieth century.
Essentially this is a love story, but there is nothing sentimental nor cloying. The plot explores the themes of parenthood, truth and honour through the experiences of this young undertaker. There is a great deal of gentle humour and wry wit. Wilfred is so likeable that readers cannot fail to feel for him and with him.
The style is distinctive and effective; Wendy Jones has found a unique voice to tell her cleverly crafted story.If you enjoyed 'The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry' you may find that this book has a similar warmth, quirkiness and it too is uplifting.
