The Monk Downstairs: Mike and the monastery

From the reader’s guide to The Monk Downstairs by Tim Farrington:

Michael Christopher initally tells Rebecca that he left the monastery because he “had a fight with his abbot.” Why do you feel he really left the monastery? What was he looking for? What did he find?

To expand on those thoughts, do you think that if Mike knew then what he knows now, he would have left the monastery sooner? And what do you think of only seeing Mike’s side of the correspondence?
