In this last volume Pen Wilcock opens up the whole community, engaged in the round of the monastic day and spread across the abbey's estate. This a bird's-eye view, frank and witty, of monastic life. Not every monk is settled or secure. At the beginning, one of the novices sneaks away, troubled in spirit and ill at ease with his chosen path. At the end he returns, but will he stay? His struggles represent those of the whole community, and he is not alone: the older brothers consider the value and purpose of their contribution. This is about what it means to live a committed life. These men who have not been forced together: they have each chosen this way of life, with its particular challenges and temptations - often a hard road, but a rewarding one. For each this is a life lived on purpose, faithful, committed; sometimes peaceful on the surface, but with strong currents beneath.
