I actually read the sequel to this series before reading this trilogy. This did not detract from my enjoyment of this book.The trilogy begins in a present day setting with a mother retelling stories to her daughter about a cloister of Benedictine monks who lived in during the 14th century. One of these monks, the abbott, Father Peregrine, happens to be her great-great-great grandfather. The first two parts of the trilogy flip back and forth between the present and the past focusing mainly on the relationship between Father Peregrine and a younger monk, Brother Tom. When Father Peregrine is seriously injured, the two monks develop a strong bond of love and friendship, each dependant on the other for physical, emotional and spiritual reasons. In the third part of the trilogy, the author switches styles and abandons the mother/daughter story-telling and focuses entirely on the Benedictine cloister.Although I found the tale to drag in places, I genuinely liked the characters, the mix of humourous and serious moments, and the emotions the author was able to invoke. In fact, this story made me both laugh and cry.

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.

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!

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.
