He ends up as a student in a monastery near Rome, which, among other things is tasked with getting Peppino to control his temper. It almost works.
He returns home as a young baron, asked by the pope himself to continue to support the common people in a dignified way ... but Peppino is Peppino and when he feels he has to take action....
Peppino, group leader Nicola, best friend Emilio, and team member Abramo (a Jew in Catholic Italy), and even the Baroness are good characters and the plot, essentially reporting on Peppino's exploits, makes for a fun read.
The story itself is engaging and deals with easy to sympathize with struggles and feelings... class distinctions, gaining faith, losing faith, family conflict, hard questions, etc. It has a sense of humor and a good deal of action and even a few tear jerkers at the end.
Thank you Mr. Coleman for this wonderful book, and I look forward to more of your books.
God Bless You.
believable circumstances. I had no problem picturing what was happening. His humor and sense of honor wrap around each character.
I am waiting for the sequel to see what happens to the Americanized "Joseph" DeAngelis after he gets off the boat. Please follow up with that story!
