My pick this week is The Hawk and the Dove by Penelope Wilcock.
This much underappreciated modern classic follows a small monastery in medieval England. Their abbot, Peregrine, suffers an injury which leaves him helpless to care for himself, and he must learn to depend on the other monks in ways he hadn’t been able to before. This book is a must-read, particularly for those interested in good historical fiction.
