The whole story seemed a rushed telling of one episode , with a perfunctory ending . The premise, that it is inherently amusing to send a "holy innocent " out on an unpleasant mission , accompanied by a worldly-wise
cynic ,failed to strike my funny-bone , and the hints of something unpleasant /doomed /cursed /odd about
D'eathly Dingle also failed to solidify . ( Mind you , that name should arouse suspicions!)
It's obviously a popular series , and I wish good luck to the author and his fans , but once was enough for me .
Following an improvised journey from Lincoln to London with ‘try hard’ Brother Hermitage and his companion Wat the Weaver, who heralds a reputation for creating of the most ‘colourful’ tapestries in the land ;), kept me thoroughly entertained from start to finish.
The answer as to whether Brother Hermitage’s valiant efforts to instil the spirit of Christes Mass into Wat will succeed will be found at the end of a very challenging but humorous road.
And the moral of this short tale is… it’s essential for me to read more by Howard of Warwick, as ‘Brother Hermitage’s Christmas Gift’ has opened the door to a brand new series for me to follow!

For all of Howard’s fans and devoted readers of the Brother Hermitage books, this is a little story you simple won’t want to miss. And if you haven’t read any of the tales, I encourage you to do so. If you love well-crafted historical mysteries with clever plots, sprinkled with an abundance of humour, this is a series I’m sure you will enjoy. Even though these tales are supposedly over a thousand years old (or maybe not), Howard’s narratives continue to stand the test of time. My suggestion is to start at the beginning with “The Heretics of De’Ath”, and I suspect it won’t be long before you too will look forward to reading each of the adventures that follow. Merry “Christes Mass” Howard, Hermitage, Wat and Cwen!
Enjoy; (no animals were harmed in the making of this novella).
