Valiantly written in real time in the midst of the pandemic, this entertaining book captures the difficulties of 2021 with heart, humour and insight. Perfect for Lindchester fans, it's also the ideal novel for anyone seeking comfort and a way of understanding all that has happened.
In The Company of Heaven, we re-join our Lindchester friends on Easter Monday 2021, just as the third lockdown in our Covid winter of discontent draws to a close. The new paschal candles have been lit. The endless snowy ghastliness of January, February, and March are behind us now.
Shake out your wings and fly once more across the Diocese of Lindfordshire, as we launch out on Pandemic, Part II. We will catch up with old friends and make new ones. Skeletons will tumble from cupboards, and not everyone will behave themselves as well as they ought (this is Lindchester after all).
'Wise and funny . . . Catherine Fox knows that daily life is never trivial. Her characters' big experiences take place in the ordinary world of Covid, cake and kindness, but - like our own - they are no less significant for that.'
- Gillian Cross, winner of the Carnegie Medal and the Whitbread Children’s Book Award on THE COMPANY OF HEAVEN
'By innovatively laying her characters onto real-time month by month events, Catherine Fox reminds us of the vital narratives of our own lives, and asks us to pay attention to the human stories that pulse beneath the headlines.'
- Andrew McMillan, poet and Professor of Contemporary Writing, Manchester Writing School on THE COMPANY OF HEAVEN
