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:
The Shrewsbury Abbey of 1141 is refuge to Brother Humilis, a terminally ill monk, and his companion and caregiver, the mute Brother Fidelis. Unlike other Brother Cadfael books, no murder or crime is committed, but a mystery still lurks here to be solved. In addition to the usual lush and evocative rendering of medieval life for which Peters is famous, this is a touching and beautifully realized love story. Stephen Thorne handles it all with aplomb. In his hands the landscapes and scenery, the mannerisms and wonderful language of the time seem to be painted before you as you listen. You long to step into the herbarium to see the vivid colors and smell the pungent aromas. As mentally stimulating and appealing a story as you are likely to find anywhere.
