4.0 out of 5 stars Another Excellent Mystery, 29 Mar. 2013
This review is from: The Leper Of Saint Giles: 5 (Cadfael Chronicles) (Paperback)
Another great mystery featuring brother Cadfael, the plot is more complex than some of the earlier books with the issues of the equality of women (or rather lack of it) as the rich heiress is a commodity for bartering for marriage by greedy relatives. Compare this to the character who is key to the mystery and treated badly by kin simply for the choices she made for a better life. The fear and treatment of lepers is also key, a disease which was prevalent at the time and those who suffered were apart from society. In this story this is used for advantage.

Of the two murders the second is a surprise and the outcome and revelations shed a lot of history on the characters and times.
