Rev (Major) Mary Greenstock

The padre who is desperate to do a good job, fit in and keep up with the banter, but is pretty sure she’s failing at every turn. She’s actually doing fine, although no-one’s going to tell her that.

She gives Bluestone 42 a lot of her time, mainly because she enjoys the attention from Nick, who’s tall, good-looking and brave. She’s from a Lincolnshire village.

Which living person do you most admire? Desmond Tutu.

When were you happiest? With Will. I don’t want to talk about that though.

What’s your desert island luxury? Silk knickers. But don’t tell Nick.
