    " Book 3. A man who donates his manor to the monastary in exchange for life-long care of his family upon monastary grounds is poisoned by one of his household with one of Brother Cadfael's healing, yet lethal,ointments. It's more complicated than this, but essintally this is the premise. "

    " The Cadfael series is my go to series. Ellis Peters (aka Edith Mary Pargeter) draws you into the stories. She has clearly done her homework on the time, place, and life of a monk in early 12th century. They aren't deep books, though occasionally a truth comes out that grabs your heart. The series is an easy read and "predictable" which makes it nice to read. Sometimes you need books that don't take you down one path, lull you into thinking you know what's going to happen only to drive you over a cliff you didn't see coming. She occasionally takes a turn you don't see, but she never drives you over the cliff. I love the Cadfael series. "
