Candace Robb has read and researched medieval history for many years, having studied for a Ph.D in Medieval and Anglo-Saxon Literature. She is the author of nine Owen Archer novels and three Margaret Kerr Mysteries.From AudioFile:
The easiest way to characterize these mystery stories set in medieval England is to note their similarity in content and tone to Ellis Peters' Brother Cadfael series. For audiobook listeners, the resemblance is heightened by the fact that Stephen Thorne has recorded several of the Cadfael novels. Thorne is a seasoned professional, secure in his craft and an effortless pleasure to listen to. His reading has complete conviction, yet it never loses touch with the fact that this is entertainment, not high art. But the recording is very good stuff of its kind: an amiable companion to the commuter or jogger. J.N. © AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
