The Heretic by Henry Vyner-Brooks

I wasn’t sure I was going to be able to enjoy this book at first because it seemed to start a little slow in the beginning and I was confused as to all the characters but then all of a sudden it all came together for me and I couldn’t put it down. I loved the characters once I figured out who everyone was. Get through the first few chapters and then you will love the suspense and the romance in this historical fiction book during Reformation England. I hope to read more books by Henry Vyper-Brooks. I received this book from book fun.org for a fair and honest opinion.  In 1536 it seems the entire known world is changing–strange new lands are discovered and the Reformation is challenging Rome and its power. In England the king’s declaration of a new church and dissolution of the monasteries overturns the customs and authorities of centuries. In the new world order, spies abound and no one can be trusted.

To Brother Pacificus of the Abbey of St. Benet’s in Norfolk, it looks like his abbey alone will be spared dissolution. But this last Benedictine house is mired in murder and intrigue. Then when Pacificus falls under suspicion, more than his own dark past comes to light, while the body count keeps rising. Pacificus’s fate becomes entwined with that of three local children after their parents are arrested for treason and heresy. Protected only by this errant monk, a mysterious leper, and a Dutch eel-catcher, the children must quickly adjust; seeking their own identity, they soon find that neither parents nor protectors are quite what they seem.manages a large estate in the Lake District, a task which he combines with his work as an assistant pastor in a local church.
