When Brother Alphaios comes to a great American city to recreate the Book of Hours, he must discover both its origins and the heresies that kept it hidden away for six hundred years. Finding himself an unwelcome guest in a cold, dour monastery, he becomes beguiled both by the audacious fifteenth-century illuminator he calls Jeremiah and the characters he encounters in the vast, chaotic city. Reflective and experiential, Brother Alphaios is drawn to make his own bold statement-one final touch with his finest sable brush.

A multifaceted book, rich in description and thought. Set in modern day, it has an interesting reach-back into history potentially effect the present. Lots to wonder and think about. I'm hoping there is more of Brother Alphaios in the future.
