Norman Pugh is not a happy man. As if being made redundant isn't bad enough in itself, he's now unable to fulfil his wife's cherished ambition of going on holiday to Ibiza-certainly not this year... quite possibly not ever. And Mavis Pugh is not an understanding woman, given that her chief aims in life are continuing to rule her husband's sex life with a rod of iron (sometimes literally)... and spending two weeks in Ibiza. The explosive combination of these desires, thwarted or otherwise, has now resulted in the forcible eviction of Pugh from the marital home. And so he sits in the pub while he tries to summon up sufficient Dutch courage to go and chuck himself into the canal. But Pugh's problems have hardly begun. It transpires that he has been earmarked as a 'Major Benefactor of Mankind' by the Forward Planning Department of the Heavenly Host. And it is down to his guardian angel (Farrington Peasgood) to prevent Pugh's suicide at all costs. Peasgood knows that this will not be an easy task and finds he has no option but to call in a favour from The Other Side. The ensuing chaos and confusion will have you gasping for breath as this fast paced hilarious romp takes flight. Who knows where it will end. Whatever you expect the outcome to be...you will almost certainly be wrong. This is Peter Barrie's debut novel and will appeal to readers who like a book with more twists and turns than a coalition government at a Chubby Checker concert! It is funny, sexy and very, very wicked ... Warning: Adult content not suitable for under 18s

“This prophecy was given by the Lord that the earth would know that mercy and His love endures and lives. May you eat of the fruit of His love as you read this book and perceive the reflection of His heart toward the world in this day and in this hour.” ~The Lord on His throne In the moments of these late hours of the earth, His mercy is rich in the power of love. He is a God rich in mercy. His richness has afforded him a Son. His Son was His prize possession, His medal of honor, His symbol of love to the earth. He taught His Son to ride above the earth, close to His heart until His final destination arrived. Clothed in white He sits seated next to the Father; The Worthy White Rider. In the fullness of His love for the earth He will ride again. In His love for mankind His necessary talents will be summoned, for He is the hope of the nations to the four corners of the earth; to touch the hearts of mankind and teach them to ride, victoriously. This is the end time prophecy of the worthy White Rider.” Recorded by C. L. Thomas
