‘Brook Breasting’ is the story of a year in the life of a picturesque English village as seen mainly through the eyes of the Village Fete Committee. The story and the committee members are brought to life in the first nine, short, interlinking chapters. Enjoy their varied lives and a few twists and turns along the way.
The new Treasurer of the Brook Breasting Fete Committee the Reverend Rolf James has discovered an anomaly in the accounts. He calls for an Extraordinary General Meeting. Is there a villain to unmask? Chapter by chapter, we see the lives of the main characters in this book held up to close scrutiny.
The build up to the fete and subsequent events are central to the story, but other issues and happenings in and around the village vie for attention. The sudden unexpected death of one of the main characters and the threatened closure and attempted armed robbery of the post office, followed by a tragic accident involving a boy and a spate of organised poaching incidents, are just some of the plotlines weaving in and out of the story. Author John White brings this story to life with a cast of unforgettable characters in an inspiring tale of courage and determination, love and loss.
On the outside, Brook Breasting is a picturesque English village. On the inside, it has the characters that make it uniquely, Brook Breasting.
