it was amazing

A tightly woven collection of vignettes about human nature which is knit together by the observations of two Church of England priests, one from a journal written by his predecessor. The man of the cloth is very human and seems constantly surprised by the revelations both of his parishioners and by his own human nature. In contrast to many reviewers, I felt the ending evolved naturally from a cycle over which the priest had little control, given his own fallibility, but easily could have been changed if he had been a different man. The story led inevitably to its conclusion and indicated a cycle that would repeat itself. The priest was at his heart a mystery and remained a mystery to the end, as well as a somewhat twisted revelation that is the final denouement to the congregation's secrets. I loved the cat!
