In the year of our Lord 1141, civil war over England’s throne leaves a legacy of violence—and the murder of a knight dear to Brother Cadfael. In the spring, a flood of pilgrims comes to the celebration of Saint Winifred at the Abbey, carrying with it many strange souls…and perhaps the knight’s killer.

Brother Cadfael’s shrewd eyes see all: the prosperous merchant who rings false; an angelic, lame boy and his beautiful, dowerless sister; and two wealthy penitents. In the name of justice, Cadfael sets out to uncover the strange and twisted tale that accompanies these travelers. Instead, he unearths a quest for vengeance, witnesses a miracle, and finds himself on a razor’s edge between death or the absolution of love.

    " This is one of the more poetic and mystical of the Cadfael stories. It twists and turns and reveals the answers with patience and skill. However, not all answers are possible. A lovely book. "

    " A really good mystery. I had guessed at some of the solution, but the full explanation was very satisfying. One of the better in this series. "

    " A murder in another town, two young men, one walking barefoot across the country, and a love story. Entertaining, as alway.s "

    " This is a series I turn to for a "comfort" read - when I want beautiful literature, to be taken off to a far away place with a wonderful, genial main character whose input and perspective I would welcome at any time. Brother Cadfael does that for me and Stephen Thorne's melodious voice reading Ellis Peters' beautiful prose is a comfort I can turn to over 20 times in this wonderful series and without repeating a storyline.
