A stranger to the region is the hermit Cuthred, who enjoys the protection of Lady Dionysia, and whose young companion, Hyacinth, befriends Richard. Despite his reputation for holiness, Cuthred's arrival heralds a series of mishaps for the monks. When Richard disappears and a corpse is found in Eyton Forest, Brother Cadfael is once more forced to leave the tranquility of his herb garden and devote his knowledge of human nature to tracking down a ruthless murderer.
This is the fourteenth chronicle of Brother Cadfael, of the Benedictine Abbey of Saint Peter and Saint Paul, at Shrewsbury.
"Enchanting....Medieval England comes marvelously alive." (Washington Post)
"Brother Cadfael remains as shrewd and unpredictable as ever." (Publishers Weekly)
"Kendall has a fine touch with accents, and it is easy to tell the characters apart." (Library Journal)

Brother Cadfael unmasks a false holy man
If you could sum up The Hermit of Eyton Forest in three words, what would they be?
Who was your favorite character and why?
Brother Cadfael of course. He humanizes monasticism in a way that appeals to me
What does Roe Kendall bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
I hear the dialect of the language. That is special.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
the whole book is one long immersion into a world of comfortable characters.
Any additional comments?
All books in this series are as soothing as ones favorite comfort food. Ellis Peters always delivers a good story.
