The innocence is an assumption that everyone makes when they first meet face to face with Father Brown. He appears to the naked eye to be sheltered and out of touch with the real world. Even during a case he appears bumbling and lost, asking unrelated and tangential questions. This is not a facade or a ruse. Father Brown is not trying to trick anyone but at the same time isn’t interested in setting anyone straight. Each chapter you watch a mystery slowly rise like a balloon until Father Brown’s keen insight slices through it and brings it back to earth. Enjoy reading this unassuming work, The Innocence of Father Brown.
