    The Hawk and the Dove

    Book #1

    14th-century Yorkshire, the time of Chaucer

    Father Peregrine is appointed Abbot of St. Alcuin's Benedictine abbey. An arrogant, impatient man, a hawk trying hard to be a dove--his name in religion is "Columba," the dove--he is respected, but not loved.

    A sudden, shocking act of violence changes everything. As the story unfolds, this community of monks, serious about their calling but as flawed and human as we are, come to love their ascetic but now vulnerable leader.

    They lived six centuries ago, but their struggles are our own: finding our niche; coping with failure; living with impossible people; and discovering that we are the impossible ones.

    "A wonderful writer, a wonderful read."
    --Liz Curtis Higgs, New York Times best-selling author
