Black Country Vicar and Great Aunt Polly Stories by Reverend Carol Hathorne
Carol Hathorne is a prolific writer and her Black Country Vicar tales have featured in the pages of The Blackcountryman published by the Black Country Society and her fictional character, Great Aunt Polly has been a regular feature in the local Black Country Bugle historic newspaper. In May 1994 Carol was ordained as a priest and she has served in a number of Black Country parishes. The incidents described in ‘Black Country Vicar Stories’ have all happened, but Carol has changed the character names to protect the innocent. ‘Great Aunt Polly’ is an amalgam of moms, grans and aunties we have all known and loved.
