This story starts one year after the end of the third book, in the early fourteenth century. The monastery of St Alcuin's is settling down and adjusting to its new abbot, who is taking the place of Father Peregrine, when an old enemy, Prior William, arrives seeking refuge. Reluctantly taking in the man who so ill-treated their much loved former leader, the upended community must address old fears and bitterness while warily seeking reconciliation. But will William the refugee spread poison, or receive healing? In her fourth book in the series, Penelope Wilcock wrestles with the difficulties of forgiveness and the cautions of building trust. What is truly the hardest thing to do?
Pen Wilcock is the author of The Hawk and the Dove series and many other books such as In Celebration of Simplicity and 100 Stand-Alone Bible Studies. She has many years of experience as a Methodist minister and has worked as a hospice and school chaplain. She has five adult daughters and lives in Hastings, East Sussex. She writes a successful blog: Kindred of the Quiet Way.
