    " Excellent story in the Brother Cadfael series. A monk who is trying to atone for something he did when younger is badly injured, confesses to having given herbs from Cadfael's collection to procure an abortion with his girlfriend, which then kills her. He thinks that this is a deathbed confession, but he lives. He goes on a pilgrimage as part of his penance and what he finds out changes his life. "

    " superb, ended just as I hoped it would "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lisa | 1/13/2014

    " A good English murder mystery. A bit predictable but it held my interest. And it was clean-always a plus. I can recommend this story. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Gwyn | 12/26/2013

    " The Confession of Brother Haluin reminds me of the only other mediocre Cadfael book I've read, An Excellent Mystery, in that is slow-paced, does not have particularly engaging characters, and is not really much of a mystery at all. It also reminds me of the last Cadfael book, Brother Cadfael's Penance, in that it's not much of a historical mystery but is still pretty solid historical fiction. True, Confession is not as good as Penance, but I advised readers to skip An Excellent Mystery and I will not advise them to skip this, which must count for something. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kim | 12/20/2013

    " Book 15. I enjoyed this volume simply because I enjoy Brother Cadfael. This was not one of the better mysteries. A dead body didn't appear until page 101 and it was blatantly obvious the mother had lied about her daughter and grandchild. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dionne | 12/12/2013

    " This was good but rather slow to get to the point. Still I enjoyed it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Annette | 12/6/2013

    " Very Touching. Love will always be stronger than hate. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Colleen | 10/30/2013

    " This is probably the best Cadfael whodunnit I've read since #4, The Virgin in the Ice. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lisa | 6/29/2013

    " One of the best Cadfael mysteries--intricately plotted with foreshadowing but not too much. Peters writes beautifully; she makes me want to speak the way the books are written. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alice | 1/2/2013

    " Happened to pick this up--have now been hooked by Brother Cadfael. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Miriam | 11/1/2012

    " This one is really a little light on mystery, and it is pretty clear what is coming early on, but I still enjoyed it a lot. It was interesting to leave the area of the abbey and meet new characters. Both of the love stories were handled well. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Robin | 10/31/2012

    " This may be one of Peters' most romantic Cadfael books. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lexi | 9/5/2012

    " Another lovely Brother Cadfael mystery. As usual, mismatched lovers, political power, and church-based morality are interwoven into a somewhat simple mystery with just enough intrigue to make it interesting. Another light, quick read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Karen | 6/3/2012

    " I don't remember this, but I know I read it. Now I'll have to read it again... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Frode | 2/20/2012

    " The murder takes place late in the story, but the real wrong took place 18 years earlier. The story builds over the entire book and ends with resolution for those initially wronged. Cadfael is an active bystander in this book, and it is he who brings about the partial resolution. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Hazel | 11/8/2011

    " The Brother Cadfael series by Ellis Peters is a wonderful set of mysteries that take place in 12th century England. Ellis Peters does a wonderful job of describing all the characters and she is a great mystery writer. The cases are complicated enough to make them interesting. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Vicki | 5/4/2011

    " I so enjoy the language, the story and (of course) Brother Cadfael. I even like to re-read them. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Beka | 9/1/2009

    " An intriguing story of deception, love, and, of course, murder most foul. I love reading about Brother Cadfael and how he goes about solving mysteries. "

    " Another Cadfael tale where you can sense the twist coming a mile away but only wait for the characters to begin to suspect what you know. Still, a satisfying tale of love torn asunder righted by time and guilt. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Karen | 5/6/2008

    " I don't remember this, but I know I read it. Now I'll have to read it again... "
