The Second Sleep
The Second Sleep. We’re told the year is 1468. Protagonist Christopher Fairfax is a young priest who has been sent by the bishop to a small village in Wessex, England, to conduct the funeral of Father Lacy, who spent many years as the village priest. This would be his first funeral as a priest, so Fairfax wanted to get it right. Thanks to Harris’ great plotting, we learn along with Fairfax about Father Lacy and as a result our eyes are opened to the real story in this novel. Harris knows how to tell a gripping story, and in this novel, he focuses us on the past, present and future. Rating: Five-star (I love it) Click here to purchase The Second Sleep from amazon.com.
