The year is 1143 and this is the 17th chronicle of Brother Cadfael, of the BenedictineAbbey of Saint Peter and Saint Paul at Shrewbury. Once again, the gentle monk is forced to leave the tranquility of his herb garden and use his knowledge of human nature to solve a murder - this one frighteningly close to home.

When a newly plowed field given to the Benedictine Abbey of Saint Peter and Saint Paul yields the body of a young woman, Brother Cadfael finds himself in a delicate situation. The field was once owned by a local potter named Ruald, who has abandoned his beautiful wife Generys to take monastic vows. Generys was said to have gone away with a lover, but now it seems that she has been murdered. With the arrival at the Abbey of young Sulien Blaunt, a novice fleeing homeward from the civil war raging in East Anglia, the mysteries surrounding the corpse start to multiply.

    " Everything a Cadfael mystery needs: a body, a mystery, and young love. "

    " Enjoyable. My favourite quotations from this book: "We live as candles in the breath of God." (p. 182) "...My soul has benefited from his prayers. But pain is here in the body, and has a very loud voice. Sometimes I could not hear my own voice say Amen! for the demon howling." (p. 238) " 'It may well be,' said Cadfael, 'that our justice sees as in a mirror image, left where right should be, evil reflected back as good, good as evil, your angel as her devil. But God's justice, if it makes no haste, makes no mistakes.' " "

    " Yet another great Brother Cadfael novel. I really can't get over how well written these are. Once again there was a surprise ending that never even crossed my mind. "

    " This was not the first time I'd read this book but I fell in love with the series all over again. Really well-written, educational and good character development with a wry sense of humor. "
