5.0 out of 5 stars WONDERFUL VALUE, 12 Dec 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Ellis Peters writes prose as if it were poetry. She is a wonderfully evocative writer, and uses the English language superbly. She carries one into the world of 12th century Shrewsbury and its surroundings, and her characters are all skilfully portrayed. I feel one can never tire of Brother Cadfael and his 'chronicles'. They can be read, with increasing appreciation and pleasure, over and over again.

5.0 out of 5 stars A rattling good read, 13 May 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Escape to Provence (Paperback)
For lovers of books by Winifred Fortescue ("Perfume From Provence" being possibly her best-known title), this book is a must-read. Maureen Emerson's engaging writing style carries the reader along, and into the fascinating world of British and American expatriates living (and, in the end, surviving) in Provence between the two World Wars.
