A Darkly Hidden Truth

A Darkly Hidden Truth
The Monastery Murders, Book 2
Donna Fletcher Crow

Felicity has decided to become a nun. She departs to visit convents in spite of her mother's imminent arrival and Fr. Anselm's request that she and Fr. Antony recover a missing priceless Russian icon before the Patriarch of Moscow arrives at the community for Holy Week.

Felicity's discernment journey takes her to Rempstone, Norwich, London, and Walsingham, but her discovery of a friend's murdered body in a shallow grave, the disappearance of more icons, the shooting of a London art expert just after she visits him, the disappearance of Antony, and finally the abduction of Felicity and her mother teach her far more about motherhood, life, and love than she could learn in any convent retreat.

Breathtaking chase scenes, mystical worship services, dashes through remote water-logged landscapes, the wisdom of ancient holy women, and the arcane rites of The Knights of St. John of Malta keep the pages turning. And will Felicity choose the veil--or Antony?

This is my first time to read a book by Donna Fletcher Crow. I really enjoyed it! It's suspenseful and fast moving - two things I require from a novel. (Well, let me not forget entertaining!) I will have to check out some of her other books. She has quite a few. How have I missed reading her books?

Thank you Kregel Publications and Ms. Crow for the opportunity to review this book for free!
