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 have enjoyed this book and the others in the series. Penelope Wilcock is a wonderful writer. I have been drawn into each of the books, so I've come to remember the characters and enjoy watching them grow in God.
In this book there are several things I especially appreciated:
- don't judge others.
- learn their story (what makes them tick), so you know why they act the way they do.
- be patient and kind.
- don't assume you know eveyrthing about them.
- take time for them.
I appreciated these lessons, because I have recently been in the situation where I need to do all of these things to make my life and theirs more pleasant.
I would recommend this book to others. There are life lessons and good information about 14th century abbeys.
