When a wealthy landowner decides to cut his stepson out of his will and leave his inheritance to the church, it is Shrewsbury Abbey that looks like the beneficiary. But before Gervase Gurney is able to complete the transaction, he is poisoned while staying at the abbey. When Cadfael is called in to identify the poison, he is shocked to discover that Gervase's wife, Richildis is his own childhood sweetheart, whom he has not seen for 40 years. He last saw her before leaving for the Crusades, promising he would be back to marry her...Twelfth century Shrewsbury comes dramatically to life in Ellis Peters' story of Brother Cadfael - a good man in an evil world.
