Read the whole series years ago & loved every one!
Book 8 on the "Brother Cadfael" series and another superb story by Edith Pargeter (real name of Ellis Peters). Very well crafted, her writing is obviously not “old” English, but she brings to her words a taste of that time. I has just the right amount of mystery, intriguing characters and situations. The series of books was made into several movies with one of my favorite actors, Derek Jacobi, as Brother Cadfael. I watched the movies before reading the books and maybe that is the reason, but I can’t imagine another actor in the skin of Cadfael. When I read the books, I can’t help imagining Jacobi as the Benedictine monk!
