This is the first in a set of historical fiction. This book centers around Father Peregrine. When he is sent to be Abbot of St. Alcuin's Benedictine abbey he is attempting to change his life from one of a brash man to "a dove." It takes violence for the other monks of the abbey to come to love this man.
My heart melted and felt transformed by the telling of this story.
I was given this book by bookfun.org in exchange for my honest review.
