Overview

14th-century Yorkshire, the time of Chaucer

Has Peregrine been broken?

Injured in an attack by old adversaries, Father Peregrine transforms from a steely, articulate, impressive leader into a humbled, crippled, wise mentor. Relying on the kindness of his fellow monks, the fiercely independent, hawkish abbot begins to regain his feet.

But he faces a fresh challenge. The Augustinian Priory of St. Dunstan lies three days’ ride to the southwest, the domain of Prior William, whose calculating self-interest makes enemies everywhere. When he and Peregrine cross swords over a matter of justice masked as doctrine, will ruthlessness triumph over integrity?

The Wounds of God is the second book in the series of three. It is basically a series of short stories of the monks at a monastary during the 1300's. Now the monks are a bit older.It is told by a mother to her daughters who are also a bit older. The stories each have a meaning to them. It is well worth the reading. I recieved the book from the Book Club Network in exchange for my honest opinion.

This is the second book in the series. Just like the first book the story switches between modern times and the 14th century. There are a few new characters in this book and the other Monks have aged some. The characters were well developed and the editing was well done. (I really have trouble with poorly edited books). The story flows at a nice pace. The book came to a valid conclusion while still leaving room to start the next book in this 3 book series. I enjoyed this book and think you will too. I received this book in exchange for my honest review.

The Wounds of God is the second installment of The Hawk and the Dove series. I found that I liked this book a little than the first book. I look forward to book 3 of the series. 4 stars I received the book from bookfun.org in exchange for my honest opinion, which was given.

I received a copy of THE WOUNDS OF GOD by Penelope Wilcock from Lion Hudson in exchange for an honest review. It is book two in the HAWK AND THE DOVE series. With only one hundred and eighty seven pages, this book flew by. The chapters are written in a simplistic, beautiful prose that is both engaging and endearing. You feel as if a dear friend is telling you a story. It is late at night, but you keep begging for more. I loved the historical wisdom that exists upon the pages. Father Peregrine is a notable man who readers can learn a great deal from. He has a disability, and that helps him to grow as a human. He is an excellent role model for people of any age. Melissa is also a role model to love. In this book, she is sixteen, and is learning from these stories. I loved her role in the series, for the reader gets to learn right along with her, making for a well-rounded experience. I highly recommend this series, and this book as well. I did read them in order, but upon finishing THE WOUNDS OF GOD, I don’t think it is necessary to do so. If you only come across this installment, don’t miss your chance to read it.
