Gervase Bonel, with his wife and servants, is a guest of Shrewsbury Abbey of Saint Peter and Saint Paul when he is suddenly taken ill. Luckily, the Abbey boasts the services of clever and kindly Brother Cadfael, a skilled herbalist. Cadfael hurries to the man's bedside, only to be confronted by two very different surprises. In Master Bonel's wife, the good monk recognises Richildis, whom he loved many years ago before he took his vows. And Master Bonel has been fatally poisoned by a dose of deadly monk's-hood oil from Cadfael's herbarium. The Sheriff is convinced that the murderer is Richildis' son Edwin, who had reasons aplenty to hate his stepfather. But Cadfael, guided in part by his tender concern for a woman to whom he was once betrothed, is certain of her son's innocence. Using his knowledge of both herbs and the human heart, Cadfael deciphers a deadly recipe for murder....

    " SUMMER READING REVIEW: "I found this book filled with great ideas and techniques for writing descriptions. The humor made this book enjoyable to work with. Not your typical text book." -Deborah Cracovia "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jim | 11/21/2013

    " A good primer on describing and establishing place in your fiction. Good for new writers and helping improve the work of intermediate level writers too. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 J Fleming | 7/7/2013

    " This book was quite informative. I learned about some aspects of writing I had never considered before, and learned more in depth about those I already did know. If you're an aspiring writer, I would recommend this one. "

    " Great information! I will be referring to this for some time. "

    " After having read five or six books recently this one stands head and shoulders above the rest. Highly instructive and informative. A real gem!!!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alecia | 9/3/2012

    " I'm not particularly good with descriptions so this was a good read that helped me understand how much description was too much, not enough, or just right in accordance to genre. An insightful read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lisa M | 7/23/2012

    " Covers description and setting from learning to pay attention to details around you, to using the senses in your story, to using description and setting to drive the story. Perhaps Rozelle tried to cover too much, because I found the book to be a bit shallow. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Heidi | 7/9/2012

    " On first pass, "Word Painting" seems a better book on the same topic. But I may come back to this one later. "

    " Excellent book filled with great ideas and examples. I found the book well laid out and enjoyed the humor. "

    " Good book. All of the titles in this series are worth buying if you want to get published.You have to learn the techniques of what makes a novelist succeed in the 21st century - or carry on writing tomes for yourself. "
