Reverend Breckenridge in The House of Dies Drear

By Virginia Hamilton

Reverend Breckenridge

Reverend Breckenridge is the preacher of the church the Smalls have joined in Ohio. He has a beautiful speaking and singing voice. Thomas can tell his mother approves of the preacher. Reverend Breckenridge isn't a big character. He doesn't participate in the action or drive the plot, but the church scene is important in the story.
