Overview

In honor of nearly twenty years in print, and in the midst of three new volumes in the series, Crossway is rereleasing this classic trilogy, redesigning the cover and retypesetting the interior. Set in a medieval monastery and following the lives of the brothers of St. Alcuin, this three-in-one package consists of books 1 – 3: The Hawk and the Dove, The Wounds of God, and The Long Fall.

While the characters belong to another century, their struggles are our own—finding one’s place, coping with failure, living with impossible people, and changing when we realize that we are the impossible ones. Rich with imagery and emotion, their tales depict love in action and love given in the most trying of circumstances.

Penelope Wilcock takes a course that far too many Christian fiction writers never dare to take—writing a love story about God and man, and love between brothers in Christ rather than the typical romance between man and woman. A true ministry to the lonely of heart, Wilcock’s captivating tales of monastic life reflects the timeless human struggle of people learning to love God and to receive his grace.

    This trilogy is a stand alone great read! It's various stories

    This trilogy is a stand alone great read! It's various stories within a larger contemporary story are uniquely original, intriguing, and full of details that draw the reader in giving you a sense of actually being there. The stories are varied, the resolutions are resourceful, and the struggles are told with such sympathetic clarity that each story's denoument (sp?) is deeply satisfying, along with a pang that it is over. No other fiction has reached right through all the inner layers and touched my spirit the way these books have. I have given several sets away to others who love to read and who would appreciate the richness of the storytelling as well as the truths so beautifully and organically woven throughout.

    Buy a CASE - You will read it many times and share w/friends!

    This is best book I have ever read! It leaves me refreshed and encouraged after each chapter. You actually see and feel life like examples of Love, Joy, Peace, Patience, Kindness, Goodness, Faithfulness, Gentleness, Self-control and Lots of hard-earned Wisdom! When you finish it you will be inclined to turn back to page 1 and start again. It will effect you for a lifetime!

    The all-time best fiction about the Middle Ages

    For high school and up, this trilogy will captivate you as you enter into the life and times of Father Peregrine, abbot of a monastery in England. The trilogy is not a murder mystery, like the great Brother Cadfael series. Deep issues are dealt with by Father Peregrine, issues of relevance for today as well. This is the only book I have ever bought 15 copies of for my friends, who then bought multiple copies themselves. Don't confuse the title (The Hawk and the Dove) with another by a different author.
