The Grace Outpouring: Blessing Others Through Prayer
by Godwin Roberts
Edition: Audio CD
Price: £8.99

4.0 out of 5 stars A Book, refreshingly open to anything God might do!, 18 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Inspiring up to a point, I was impressed by the positive, non-judgemental, positive starting attitude, but perhaps I had been over-sold it by a friend and was expecting the impossible!

5.0 out of 5 stars Nightmares disturb sleep, 3 Nov 2013

Sympathetic handling of nightmares is necessary to solve the mystery of a missing emissary as well as the troubles of the novice of the title. Mark gives the sympathy but Cadfael sorts out the troubled relationships..

5.0 out of 5 stars Many reasons to be solitary, 3 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
All is not sanctity or (politics for that matter) in either the monastic or solitary cell. Murder and intrigue challenge Cadfael and Hugh to reserve judgement for a time! .

A Morbid Taste For Bones: 1 (Cadfael Chronicles)
A Morbid Taste For Bones: 1 (Cadfael Chronicles)
by Ellis Peters
Edition: Paperback
Price: £6.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Saints ana Sinners Relics, 3 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Three different groups of bones to be suitably disposed of and diverse interests to protect but Cadfael is equal to all challenges. A good job that his conscience does not mind deceiving those for whom he has less sympathy!!

by Ellis Peters
Edition: Paperback
Price: £11.89

5.0 out of 5 stars A Detective Trilogy, 3 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Cadfael seems to invite mysteries in spite of living as a Benedictine and therefore supposedly confined to the monastery but...... Ellis Peters allows us to suspend disbelief and her sense of place and historical perspective are convincing. The stories are varied with a spice of love interest here and there but the mystery is the main thing!

5.0 out of 5 stars A theological dilemma??, 28 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The theological questions start and finish the book but the middle is has romance, danger and a touch of the politics of this unsettled time for England. As usual Cadfael is helpful to the young lovers. A good read.


An Excellent Mystery: 11 (Cadfael Chronicles)
An Excellent Mystery: 11 (Cadfael Chronicles)
by Ellis Peters
Edition: Paperback
Price: £8.43

5.0 out of 5 stars The mystery is excellent being unexpected., 28 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Cadfael exercises his doctoring skills "to comfort always" where cure is not possible. The story ends with the solution of the mystery presenting the characters with a problem only resolved by as "act of God" rather than by Cadfaels wisdom.

Designed for rheumatic or other arthritic conditions it can be helpful to anyone who has become clumsy from neurological diseases too. All aids to indepenence are to be welcomed. This one needs a little perseverance to learn how best to use it.
