Penelope Wilcock in her new book “hardest Thing to Do book coverThe Hardest Thing to Do” Book Four in The Hawk and the Dove series  published by Lion Hudson returns us to the monastery of St Alcuin.

From the back cover:    14th century Yorkshire:  the time of Chaucer.

The Hardest Thing to Do starts one year after the end of the third book, The Long Fall. The peaceful monastery of St Alcuin’s is settling down and adjusting to the new abbot who has be chosen to take the place of Father Peregrine.

Then a deeply detested 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?

Welcome back to St. Alcuin. Ms. Wilcock is giving us the first of three sequels to the celebrated The Hawk and the Dove trilogy takes place one year after the end of “The Long Fall”. What would you do if an old enemy came to the door seeking refuge? Prior William is not loved nor trusted but he is telling them a different story. How are they supposed to handle this? This is fascinating stuff. Betrayal, Forgiveness and Trust are just some of what has to be dealt with. Ms. Wilcock is a highly gifted author who knows how to give us deeply human characters that have strong emotions. Ms. Wilcock has given us a unique story that will capture your attention as you read and flip pages as fast as possible.  I recommend this book highly.
