A good story based around Cadfael's ability to see what we all miss. New characters are mostly from the town, with less sense of what is unfolding in the rest of Britain, with the civil war almost a distant memory. Peters does greed very well, with romance andintrigue more mechanical.

Cadfael fans will enjoy this a lot, but will find it a touch less well developed in terms of character. All in all, a good read.

As seen by my other reviews, I really like this series and this is one of the best. I was kept guessing until all was revealed. I find the historical events in these books very interesting and am widening my knowledge of the battles for the crown of England between Stephen and Matilda by each book!

If you're interested in an audio edition, check that you're getting the unabridged recording narrated by Stephen Thorne. If you're interested in the Derek Jacobi video, I warn you that the BBC rewrote the backstory of both Judith and Niall to make them more melodramatic; as compensation, they came up with one additional clever ploy on the part of the murderer that's worth seeing.
This May of 1142, spring has begun late; winter's prolonged grip has been reflected in human affairs. King Stephen, freed by a prisoner exchange after THE PILGRIM OF HATE, raised the Empress' hopes by falling ill, but her move to Oxford was premature; he's now in fine fettle, picking off the empress' outposts. While these events, and the war at large, have little effect on this story, they'll be relevant in the next book, THE HERMIT OF EYTON FOREST. Cadfael's worries are more immediate, but easing now that the crops have finally been sown and it looks as though the roses will be out by the 22nd of June, the feast of St. Winifred's translation.
The Widow Perle - 25-year-old Judith Vestier that was - lost her husband to a terrible fever four years ago, despite everything Cadfael could do, then lost her only child in miscarriage shortly thereafter. In the depths of her grief, she couldn't bear to stay in the house where they'd been happy, so she deeded the place to the abbey in exchange for an annual rent of one white rose from her favorite rosebush, to be paid into her hand each June 22nd. (As heiress to the Vestier clothier business, Judith has ample property even without the house; she moved in 'over her shop', as it were, with her widowed aunt and her cousin Miles.

My Husband reads to me every night before we go to sleep and this book was wonderful! I love stories that have happy endings and where the 'prince' gets his 'princess.' Ellis Peters is a great writer and I enjoy her Cadfael books even more than the T.V. series. Five Stars.

This book continues in the vein of Ellis Peters' fast flowing detective tales of the world knowing monk Cadfael. Reading the story on Kindle at night does not help in putting the light out until you have read much more than intended.

on my shelf i already have the cadfael-dvd's but i wanted the cd's as well and i'm not disappointed. on the contrary, derek jacobi - once more - brings all the needed nuances.
brilliant!
