Thief of Glory by Sigmund Brouwer

A fascinating history, the power of love, the gripping reality of all that is good and evil in the human condition. This book has it all.

I intended to skim this novel, just to do a quick review, then go back and read it later, but, as usual with Sigmund Brouwer’s books, I found I couldn’t do that. The characters gripped me and drew me into the story from the first page. I know the beautiful prose and skilful story-telling in this story will stay with me long after I’ve stayed up into the wee hours tonight savouring it. My only complaint – those final two words, The End.
