The Secret Dead by S.J. Parris
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
“Because I believe God is bigger than the rules we impose on one another. I think He does not mind if we find different paths to Him.”
The more I keep reading these Historical mysteries , the more I come to realise that its religion in its purest form remains as Holy as ever, but somewhere down the line the "HOLY MEN" took matter into their own hands and turned religion and the concept of God, into one of the most vilified and untrustworthy of all human beliefs.
The story was fast, and the character of Giordano Bruno reminded me of another God fearing true man of God, Brother Cadfael. The story came out as a tragedy mystery element in the story was not that potent, but the writing skill of the author kept the pace high from the very first paragraph, and never slacked in between.
My first S.J. Parris experience, and it was a sad but a beautiful one.
