3.8/5 Goodreads

Bernard Walsh, agnostic theologian, has a sort of professional interest in Paradise. But, having come to Hawaii to escort his reluctant father Jack to the deathbed of Jack's estranged sister, he does not, like his fellow package- tourists, hope for a heavenly holiday.
And that seems just as well as Bernard struggles to overcome the obstacles that threaten the reunion. But Hawaii holds surprises undreamed of in overcast Rummidge. As honeymooners, families nuclear and fissile, professional freeloaders and amateur cameramen avidly pursue their earthly visions of paradise, Bernard discovers the astonishing possibility of love...

"Lodge could never be solemn and the book crackles with good jokes... leaves you with a mild, and thoughtful, glow of happiness" - Sunday Telegraph
"Funny and clever" - Independent on Sunday
