In the winter of 1142, snow blankets the Bendictine Abbey of Saint Peter and Saint Paul causing damage to the guest hall, and the brothers must repair its roof before the danger worsens. The treacherously icy conditions are to prove nigh fatal for Brother Haulin when he slips from the roof in a terrible fall, sustaining such grave injuries that he makes his deathbed confession to the Abbot and Brother Cadfael. A startling story of trespasses hard for God or man to forgive emerges. But Haulin does not die. On his recovery, he sets out on a journey of expiation, with Cadfael as his sole companion. An arduous trip, it leads to horrifying discoveries, and to murder...

Promotional Information

The world of the twelfth century comes to life again in the skilful hands of Ellis Peters. Her medieval hero, Benedictine monk and more than occasional investigator, Brother Cadfael, is on this occasion helping Brother Haluin find peace for his deeply troubled conscience. As the reader might have expected though the mission of mercy doesn't go to plan and before long Cadfael is entangled in murder and intrigue.

This is one of the better volumes in the series. The story is well plotted, the characters well drawn, and it's impossible not to like Cadfael. This is an easily read, well written medieval whodunnit. What more could any reader ask for?

I've been collecting the Cadfael novels & TV series for several years, but they are proving increasingly difficult to find. No bookstores ever have them in stock & promise at least 3 months waiting. Not so with Fishpond - I had the book in 2 weeks after ordering it.
