This is my first taste of Ellis Peters, and I have to say I'm enjoying it very much. It is an excellent story and the narrator, Stephen Thorne, gives a rich variety of voices to the characters.
The first of her Brother Cadfael murder mysteries, set in the 12th Century, is based on a true story of the removal of a saint’s relics from a Welsh village to the Benedictine Abbey at Shrewsbury. It might not be a strictly realistic representation of the period, but that doesn’t matter in a novel of this style. It is easy and enjoyable to listen to, and I would recommend it without hesitation.

Impious a that means lacking piety, not taking religion seriously, and the "I" should be pronounced as "pie" NOT "pee" as in "people" . Bad mispronunciations spoil the sense of the story, and these classic stories deserve nothing but the best. Please fix it, if you can.
