Christmas at Hope Hall
The march towards the end of the year sees Hope Hall once again buzzing with activity.The lead up to the Harvest Festival sees a stray dog causing a nuisance, and tensions rise between two old schoolmates.
The drama only increases as Christmas approaches, and the panto rehearsals featuring the jocular “Can’t Sing Singers” get into full swing. But the hustle and bustle of the drama in the community stems from the deeper personal stories. Loneliness, loss, and hurt impact the lives of many of the local residents. But where there is community, there is friendship, companionship, love, and most of all, hope.
Christmas at Hope Hall is the final book in a delightful trilogy centred on a Victorian church hall, the like of which can be found at the heart of so many towns across England. This wonderful finale to the series (which includes the sound of wedding bells!) is full of friends and neighbours with stories that will have you giggling one minute, and dabbing your eyes the next.
Reviews for Christmas at Hope Hall
'What a fantastic book! Instantly likeable with wonderful characters who draw you into the delightful mix of joy, poignancy and warm familiarity. Hope Hall at Christmas is well worth diving into.' Lou Fellingham, singer and songwriter
'Pam writes with the warmth and generosity of spirit which is so characteristic of her. And Hope Hall reminds me of all those church halls where I've helped at jumble sales, tried to keep fit, gone along to local meetings and danced the night away at family wedding receptions. Pam introduces us to all those familiar characters we know so well - although the vicar's not a bit like me!' Reverend Kate Bottley, vicar and broadcaster
