This is a gentle, domestic story; A young man who had been entertaining wedding guests is accused of murder when a fracas breaks out, but there is none of the rough activities of powerful men who are jealous of their properties. One of the attractions of the book is the manner of the writing. There can be a picture of rural tranquility in the valleys around Shrewsbury or of young lovers who want to have time together. The story carries its own tensions and the unfolding of the truth about the murder gradually emerges. Brother Cadfael is a constant presence giving wisdom and providing his medicinal concoctions. An enjoyable read..

The story is excellent and Derek Jacobi's narration is easy to listen to. I have one bugbear and that is about the fact the cd audio book manufacturer (and others) stores the CDs in a plastic jewel case which is flimsy and keeps falling apart and can easily break.

A relaxing holiday read in a comfortable environment. I loved the locality and history. It is set in an area I have recently discovered and does it justice. The Medieval time zone brought that period of history alive and understandable. I look forward to reading more of the "Cadfael" books

Cadfael books are always good and I m working my way through them all. As for the actual delivery - I'm using ebook a- with amazon the process is simplicity itself.

Good story. You know with the Cadfael books that there will be a murder and a false accusation.

I bought the set, though this will be standard wording - great plots, great character, great knowledge of the history and mediaeval mind-set, can't go wrong.
