The Hawk and the Dove

I received a copy of THE HAWK AND THE DOVE by Penelope Wilcock from Lion Hudson in exchange for an honest review.  I had heard about this series before – THE HAWK AND THE DOVE is book one in a series with the same name – but it wasn’t until now that I got to test it out.  Am I glad I did!  This is a fast and poignant read. 

It is a strange book, although very enjoyable.  I had to really think hard about how to review it, and when I read the other reviews, a word jumped out: vignettes.  This series is all about vignettes from a monastery; very unique and thought provoking.   I couldn’t stop reading.  I was gobbling up the chapters.  They are written simply, but not simplistically.  I enjoyed that tremendously, for I know many people who become confused by “big words” and complicated sentences.  These books will appeal to the masses and open many eyes to God’s beautiful ways. 

I was excited to have been given all three books at once, because I really couldn’t put it down.  I had to read the next one… and then the next.  I finished the series with a content sigh.
