Book Description

20 Sep 1984
Pilgrims are gathering from far and wide to celebrate the fourth anniversary of the translation of Saint Wilfred’s bones to the Benedictine Abbey at Shrewsbury. In distant Winchester, a knight, supporter of the Empress Maud, has been murdered – not apparently an event of importance to those seeking miraculous cures at the saint’s shrine. But among the throng some strange customers indeed begin to puzzle Brother Cadfael – and as the story unfolds it becomes evident that the murder is a much less remote affair than it first seemed.

First Sentence
It was just possible, thought Cadfael, willing to do justice even to bishops, that Henry also had the cause of order and peace genuinely at heart, and was willing to back whichever contender could restore them. Read the first page

5.0 out of 5 stars Complex story of time and people 14 July 2013
By bernie VINE VOICE
Format:Audio Cassette
It is A.D. 1141. A year that brings a tide of pilgrims to the Abbey.

This is the tenth mystery in the series. You may want to start from the first to let the interacting mysteries reveal themselves in chronological order. This is the second one for me after "The Morbid Taste for Bones." I do have to warn you that the synopsis to "A Morbid Taste for Bones" and "Virgin in the Ice" is played out again somewhat in the first two chapters of this book.

What can not be portrayed in the short Cadfael movies and would make marvelous reading on its own is the inter action between the forces and reasons behind the vacillating positions of Empress Maud and King Stephen. This is also a crucial part of the story; as the loyalties and logistics play a major part in the mystery and people's lives.

I will not compare and contrast the people in the story or the differences in the film adaptation as the fun is finding out for your self, all the actions and interaction of people. I will say that none of this would have been possible with out the grace of St. Winifred.

5.0 out of 5 stars Worth reading more than once 16 Jun 2013
Format:Paperback
I always hesitate to give a book 5 stars, but could not find any reason to award fewer!. I rank this alongside "Morbid Taste for Bones" and "One Corpse too many", both of which are 5 star reads.
As usual with the Cadfael series one enjoys the historical context and the life of the abbey with its many colourful characters; the relationship between Hugh and Cadfael is delightful The plot is multi-stranded and believable and leads to an elegant and satisfying conclusion.
But the book is so much more than the solving of a complex puzzle. Deep themes are addressed, including: faith; healing; justice; revenge; penitence; mercy and redemption.
I first read the book some 10 years ago and am writing following my second reading; I shall put the book by and look forward to revisiting it in another 10 years!
