About the Author

Following retirement from a career in the petrochemical industry, John Umfreville chose a new path researching the family history and filling in the gaps of earlier works. The main success came with the linking of the English and Canadian branches of the family through exploration of the life of Edward, an employee of the Hudson Bay Company, which led to a reunion of the present day family branches at Sioux Lookout.

Separate research was carried out into the history of the malting trade at Henley-on-Thames and also into the politics and life of the most successful Mayors of that town around 1900. This work unearthed a plenitude of unproven facts, stories, and gossip concerning life in this riverside town. This has been used to create a fictional story of a new Methodist minister and his family from India as they try to become accepted into the society of the townspeople.

The Comings and Goings of the Reverend Bertram Moorehouse by John Umfreville is Historical Fiction in Victorian England about 1900. I liked the authors writing style, it seemed to fit that era well. The characters, situations and behaviors were pleasantly Victorian. I believe the author had a an important message about how our actions affect us and others. Interesting story but I wanted more details of Mr. Moorehouse‘s travels. I received a complimentary copy of this book from Netgalley. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own. I appreciate the opportunity and thank the author and publisher for allowing me to read, enjoy and review this book.
