Jerome and the Seraph
AUTHOR: robina williams
Brother Jerome slips in the graveyard, hitting his head with a thud. Later he finds himself in a rather strange place accompanied by a dear old friend that he knows is deceased. The situation is most abstruse as there are no cherubs, no angels, no fluffy clouds- none of his expectations of beyond; he soon accedes to his irreversible situation. His greatest surprise is the arrival of his beloved cat, Leo in the afterworld. Leo, who we learn is actually Quant, the cat/lion alter ego, it seems, can travel at will between the two worlds being both alive and dead.
Jerome's ingrained beliefs are challenged, as he learns the answers to life long spiritual questions. He comes face to face with the hound of Heaven as the trill of Pan's flute fills the air.
Brother Jerome and his cohorts, both living and dead are most enchanting characters. Full of human frailties and believable character flaws, they charm the reader with their humorous encounters and escapades.
The author makes reference to several nineteenth century paintings including St. Jerome in the Wilderness, adding a touch of refinement and artistic interest to the book. Amusing, entertaining and charming, Robina Williams has a winner with her bumbling friar and his amazing ginger.
The author lives in north- west England and has an M.A in Modern Languages. This book is the first in the Quantum cat series; she has finished her second book Angelos and is working on the third.
Highly recommended, this reviewer looks forward to the next book in the series. Shirley Roe, Allbooks Reviews.
It held my interest from start to finish ,I was sorry when it ended. This book is one of a set so you can have a break if you like and start another one. A thoroughly enjoyable read.
There are a lot of things going on, but there doesn't seem to be a sensible plot to the story, just a bunch of friars and some weird things in the afterlife. Many things that could be interesting plot points are introduced and then breezed over with the explanation that a particular character thought it was weird, but didn't want to explore it further and the subject is dropped forever. This means that nothing really happens and the reader thinks the book is going to go in one direction, but just doesn't go anywhere.
The book ends abruptly, so it would seem as if there might be more books in the future to tie things together. Unfortunately, this book was such a disappointment, I wouldn't bother reading any future books in the series to find out what happens.
