Fred Archer, the master of the rural tale, has gathered together a fine collection of Worcestershire country folk. From the alluring barmaid Amy Lights - a "rural Venus" - to the Reverend Vernon, who rides a tricycle religiously and excels at funerals, all the characters embody earthy warmth and ruddy humour.
Central to the tale is Sacco, a builder’s apprentice, who seduces the local girls and startles older folk with his much-prized motorbike. With a witty remark and a quick answer to all of life’s perplexing questions, Sacco is a scoundrel, but a likeable one. He is indeed a true "lad" of Evesham Vale.
