    " Not my favorite in the series, but definitely enjoyable. Another interesting look into the society of the time. The story was sad, but told sympathetically. "

    " A typically good mystery solved by the quirky brother Cadfael. "

    " Or maybe this one is the most romantic .... "

    " This was one of my favorite in this series. I actually cried at the end but I cry very easily. Any story about a woman who's lost a baby resonants with me and this one was very well done. As always I would recommend this series to anyone and everyone. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 David | 1/12/2009

    " Worth the read. I knew from the first who donit. But I would not trust myself to the end so I add two other perps through the read. Read it through in one sitting with a couple nodding thrown in. "

    " Brother Cadfael is the Colombo of the 13th c. Great fun. "

    " Fairly typical Cadfael. Always enjoyable but not spectacular. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Neysa | 10/24/2008

    " Love the Cadfael series. It's wonderful to be transported to 12th century Shrewsbury (such a unique setting for a mystery) and to follow Cadfael, an ex-crusader turned monk, while he solves the murder of a fellow Brother. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Korynn | 9/30/2008

    " A good mystery that involves many suspects with many motives but even better, each suspect is involved to some degree...a good twist and a surprising lack of the young love sub-plot, although two are brought together by the end. "

    " One of favorite Ellis Peters novel love the ending "
