We picked this up after celebrating Good Friday mass at this monks monastery back when we went to Bard. In '99 he was the only monk left, so th monastery was, by default, a hermitage, and I think the only reson the church let him stay was that he pretty much pays for his keep with a line of cookbooks. This book is fantastic - well written, simple recipies; one can never have too many soup recipies, as they make such a simple, quick meal. And its by a monk, and he's adorable, so there you are.
this was such an impressive first novel. great historical fiction. everyone at book club agreed: this book described how all how men should love!
