William and Madeleine are deeply in love--but love may not be enough to win the day Madeleine Hazell and William de Bulmer have been married a year. She is a healer, a wise woman, practical, intelligent, and blunt. He is not only an ex-monk, but an ex-abbot, a man accustomed to authority, a gifted administrator, at home with figures--but less capable in matters such as shutting up chickens for the night. They are deeply, irrevocably in love. And every conversation may become a battlefield that leaves both of them wounded and resentful. When William's former abbey, St. Alcuins, suffers the loss of their cellarer, the current Abbot Father John doesn't know how to handle the rents and provisions. He is a gifted physician and a capable leader, but estate management is beyond his competence. With a sense of rising panic he turns to his friend, the man who renounced his vows for love, the former Father William—only to find that his own pastoral skills may be required in matters matrimonial. The Breath of Peace is the seventh novel in The Hawk and the Dove series and explores themes of mutual submission found in Ephesians 5:21–33. -
"A Breath of Peace" by author Penelope Wilcock is about a couple who really love each other. The problem is that even though they are married they are unable to keep from hurting each other every time they dare to speak to each other. William de Bulmer is an ex-abbott, Madeleine Hazell is a wise woman and a healer. This is part of the Hawk and the Dove series by this author. Will they ever learn to get along? Will they forever be at odds? I was given this book for a review by Kregel Publishers and all opinions are mine. I give this book a 4/5.
