Publisher's Summary

A late spring in 1142 has the Abbey monks dismayed, for there may be no roses by June 22nd. For three years, the wealthy young widow Judith Perle has rented her house to the monks for the price of a single rose each year. When nature finally complies, a pious monk is sent to pay the rent—and found murdered beside the hacked rose-bush.
Without a rose, the monks’ rental contract becomes void, adding greatly to the widow’s dowry. But before Brother Cadfael can ponder if a greedy suitor has done this dreadful deed, another crime is committed. Now the good monk must thread his way through a tangle more tortuous than the widow’s thorny bushes.

Critic Reviews

“Peters is in fine form in this 13th book, with a leisurely mystery that once again creates a 12th century world that is both comfortable and strange, and a series of delightful, interesting characters.” ( Publishers Weekly)

Ellis Peters in top form

This is a repeater. The narrator put me off at first, but she did a first rate job. Sister Magdalen is back with another of her spectacular rescues and Cadfael contrives a happy ending from very little cloth. If you like Cadfael this is a safe bet.
