In the winter of 1142, snow blankets the Bendictine Abbey of Saint Peter and Saint Paul causing damage to the guest hall, and the brothers must repair its roof before the danger worsens. The treacherously icy conditions are to prove nigh fatal for Brother Haulin when he slips from the roof in a terrible fall, sustaining such grave injuries that he makes his deathbed confession to the Abbot and Brother Cadfael. A startling story of trespasses hard for God or man to forgive emerges. But Haulin does not die. On his recovery, he sets out on a journey of expiation, with Cadfael as his sole companion. An arduous trip, it leads to horrifying discoveries, and to murder...

Ellis Peters is one of the pseudonyms of Edith Pargeter who wrote several books under her own name and also Peter Benedict, Jolyon Carr and John Redfern. She was the recipient of the Crime Writers Association and the Cartier Diamond Dagger Award. She died in 1995.From AudioFile:
Yet another gem from the Audio Partners Mystery Masters series. You're always in safe hands with the wonderful Stephen Thorne. His execution of Brother Cadfael is near perfection, injecting into the character all the intelligence and compassion that make him such a well-loved figure in crime fiction. After a near-fatal accident, Brother Haluin feels his sins heavy upon his soul and embarks, with the help of Cadfael, on a pilgrimage of atonement. Along the way old deceits and betrayals come to light, as well as another tragedy in the making that Brother Cadfael must put right. Altogether a good bet. Peters is the master of the medieval mystery, and any time spent with Stephen Thorne is time well spent. D.G. © AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
