By three methods we may learn wisdom: First, by reflection, which is noblest; Second, by imitation, which is easiest; and third by experience, which is the bitterest. — Confucius

Gabriel and the Hour Book - Evaleen Stein



The events of this book take place in a monastery during the middle ages. It recounts the story of the making of an hour book, as a wedding gift from King Louis of France to Lady Anne of Brittany. It is told from the point of view of Gabriel, a color grinder for Brother Stephen, and the good fortune that comes to him by way of the beautiful book of devotions and prayers.
