Summary:
"Father Anselm lays bare a gripping story of the cruelty and heroism of the First World War. In the Larkwood Priory, secrets are rare. So Father Anselm is deeply dismayed when a mysterious visitor to the monastery raises an allegation against Father Herbert Moore, the recently deceased founding father of the Priory and the man who shaped Anselm's own vocation. The claim is inconceivable, but Anselm soon learns that Herbert did indeed have long-buried secrets from his past - when he was known as Captain Moore - that he kept hidden all his life. Unable to accept the seemingly brutal details revealed about his mentor, Father Anselm investigates the meaning behind what appears to be a punishing decision in a cruel war."--Jacket.
