"If one could travel in time to 12th-century England to meet Brother Cadfael, this reviewer would expect him to sound just like Patrick Tull." ( Library Journal)

Love Ellis Peters

I've listened to this book many times- it never disappoints! I only wish she were still alive and writing.

Exceptional!

I was captivated with the story! Loved the way every detail and mystery was tied up! I am going to start reading the series from the beginning and in order. I have 13 of the DVDs.
