Well, here we are in the midst of moving chaos and I nearly forgot to write up this review for you of The Hawk and the Dove Trilogy by Penelope Wilcox. Kregel, who provided the copy, is so well-organized that I got (and read) these a month before the due date. These are available in a variety of formats, including a few third-party sources for an old single binding of all three volumes all the way through the e-book versions. I have a copy of each of the three books, though I’m going to reference them together.
Here are the three titles:
The Hawk and the Dove. This is the first book in the series, and introduces us to our main
characters. We are introduced to the fourteenth-century world of the monastery
and Father Peregrine. It’s a good read, and easily digested as a novel. One then
comes back, though, and sees the beauty of the story of grace built in.
Book two, as you can see, is called The Wounds of God. This
continues the saga of Father Peregrine and the monastery. This develops more of
the background of the fourteenth century and provides additional insight into
the challenges of days of religion mixed with state and every other aspect of
Book three is titled The Long Fall and deals with the after effects
of Father Peregrine’s health failing him. One begins to see how grace and mercy
interact with the changes that faltering health brings. This was a poignant read
and one well worth the time.
For me, this batch of books was a pleasant diversion, showing beauty even in
a chaotic world. I think they’re an excellent read for young or old.
The occasional thoughts of an ordinary man serving an extraordinary God. Come with me as we learn, teach, and laugh along the way.
