‘An Unholy Communion’ is long and tedious

an unholy communionDrawn to Donna Fletcher Crow’s “An Unholy Communion” because it promised an intriguing plot, I was disappointed with the seemingly forever walking journey that seemed to take as long to travel in the book as it would physically.

Felicity witnesses a murder the police label a suicide.  While she and her fiancé, Father Antony, lead a youth pilgrimage through rural Wales, they make some startling discoveries regarding the victim and those who wanted him dead.

I got lost in the book several times and mostly couldn’t wait to get finished.  This book was easily skimmed while retaining the general storyline.  The incessant detail and observations were more about the author than the characters in the story.  It was obvious the author did her homework and even travelled the same route she used in the book.  The beauty of the area captured her imagination but she didn’t translate it to the written page very well.

  1. Thank you for your very honest review! I reviewed the previous book in this series last year, and I felt, well, pretty much like you felt about this one! It’s hard to give a negative review, so I really appreciate bloggers who are honest about their feelings toward a particular book.
