Three miles off Tenby, on the southwest coast of Wales, the small island of Caldey keeps faith with 1500 years of tradition. Small boats ferry visitors to a sacred sanctuary, a place of peace and charm, a haven for wildlife, a delight of woods and flowers, cliffs, and coves. Author Chris Howells and photographer Ross Grieve have gained exclusive access to capture the daily life of the monks and their celebrations. With 150 color photographs and insightful, never-before-recorded testimonies from the monks, this book is an amazing insight into the members of Caldey Island's Cistercian order, with some very engaging photography of the brothers, the abbey, and island wildlife.
