A gem I found. What intrigued me was that the cover said that the book had been a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize and was published in 1980. I also haven’t read too many books where the dedication is in Latin.
I’ve always been fascinated by people who live outside of the box and Godric certainly did. Also, given his name, Godric wasn’t the most perfect either.
It is amazing to read a novel set in Middle English, the English before Shakespeare, the English that comes from the Middle Ages. The language takes you back and you see the world through Godric’s lens and where the truth does and doesn’t lie.
This is a book you won’t be able to put down. Kudos to Mr. Buechner on a fine work.
