Publisher's Summary

In the year of our Lord 1141, civil war over England's throne leaves a legacy of violence, and the murder of a knight dear to Brother Cadfael. And with the gentle bud-strewn May, a flood of pilgrims comes to the celebration of Saint Winifred at the Abbey of Saint Peter and Saint Paul, carrying with it many strange souls, and perhaps the knight's killer. Brother Cadfael's shrewd eyes see all: the prosperous merchant who rings false, an angelic lame boy, his beautiful dowerless sister, and two wealthy penitents.

I should have listerned to the later version

This Medieval murder mystery (12th century) is available in two versions from Audible. I selected the wrong one! It would be impossible to overstate how horrid the narration is. The voice is very, very wrong and narration is drastically over performed.

This is the 10th book in the immensely popular 21 book (and TV series) Brother Cadfael mysteries written by Edith Pargeter using the pen name Ellis Peters. The books in the series were released between 1977 and 1994.

- Wayne "I love espionage, legal, and detective thrillers but listen to most genres. Very frequent reviews. No plot spoilers! Please excuse my typos!"

Impossible to listen to!

I listen to, rather than reading, books for the added enjoyment of a great narration. I gave this one 10 minutes - should have read and believed the reviews. Hope I can return this one. Truly awful.
