9781572701403: An Excellent Mystery (Brother Cadfael Chronicles)

When two monks--one gravely ill, the other mute--arrive in 1141 Shrewsbury after their Winchester abbey is destroyed, Brother Cadfael suspects something deeper than their common vows bonds the two brothers, and faces a crisis as he tries to distinguish between the innocent and the guilty before one monk dies. Read by Stephen Thorne.

About the Author:

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.
