Description

Constable Evan Evans was glad to trade city life for idyllic Llanfair, a Welsh village that time forgot. But this little town has its share of eccentric characters -- two ministers vying for the souls of their flock, one lascivious barmaid, and three other Evanses: Evans-the-Meat, Evans-the-Milk, and Evans-the-Post.

Review Text

Praise for Evans Above

"Unique characterization and subtle humor."-Library Journal

"Bowen perfectly captures the flavor of the fiercely nationalistic Welsh...we can't help but chuckle our way through this sweet-natured cozy."-San Francisco Examiner & Chronicle

"The writing is tidy and straightforward. Llanfair, with its challenging mountain and well-drawn locals, is appealing, as is Constable Evans, a kind of Welsh version of M.C. Beaton's Hamish MacBeth."-Kirkus Reviews
