Abbot John is faced with his first problem when Prior William comes needing refuge. Several of the monks do not want the prior there, because of the way he treated Father Peregrine. The monks decide to let Prior William stay there on a trial basis. What will happen? Will they all be able to forgive each other?
About the Author-
Penelope Wilcock currently lives in England with her family. She is a writer and is a former Methodist minister. Her blog is Kindred of the Quiet Way.
I thought this was a wonderful book about forgiveness and change. This was a perfect book to learn about Abbot John and the way he was able to get Prior William involved in the monastery.
I liked the characters in this book as much as I did in the other three books. Since I recently read the other books, the characters were easy to remember. If I hadn’t remembered them, there was a very complete list of characters at the beginning of this book to help me.
I liked how the chapters were divided by each day of Lent, but I wish they were a little more detailed than, “The Tenth Day.” There were some things I wanted to look up, but I couldn’t remember which chapter they were in.
I really enjoyed this book. I think everyone should read this book.
