Good story
14 August 2011 | by (Bristol UK) – See all my reviews

Gentle story of two friends, over several years, who betray but forgive each other. One, who becomes a Roman Catholic priest, has a teenage crush on the other. The public school solution is to cane it out of him.

The RC priest supposedly loses his faith, but as an older priest says, it is the Church that has lost him because his radical and challenging views upset the hierarchy.

The monastery on an island is a little bleak. I almost expected a butler, bent-double, to appear at the door and say, 'You rang?' I wish they had hired some sort of religious consultant – it was tiresome to see the same green set of vestments worn back to front while the monks wore the wrong combination of tat.

The 'twist' at the end is reminiscent of The Thorn Birds.
