I received a copy of THE WOUNDS OF GOD by Penelope Wilcock from Lion Hudson in exchange for an honest review. It is book two in the HAWK AND THE DOVE series. With only one hundred and eighty seven pages, this book flew by. The chapters are written in a simplistic, beautiful prose that is both engaging and endearing. You feel as if a dear friend is telling you a story. It is late at night, but you keep begging for more.
I loved the historical wisdom that exists upon the pages. Father Peregrine is a notable man who readers can learn a great deal from. He has a disability, and that helps him to grow as a human. He is an excellent role model for people of any age.
Melissa is also a role model to love. In this book, she is sixteen, and is learning from these stories. I loved her role in the series, for the reader gets to learn right along with her, making for a well-rounded experience.
I highly recommend this series, and this book as well. I did read them in order, but upon finishing THE WOUNDS OF GOD, I don’t think it is necessary to do so. If you only come across this installment, don’t miss your chance to read it.
