About the Author:

Edith Pargeter, OBE, who also wrote under the pseudonym Ellis Peters, was the bestselling author of twenty Brother Cadfael Chronicles and the illustrated short story collection A Rare Benedictine. She also wrote numerous critically acclaimed historical novels including A Bloody Field by Shrewsbury and The Brothers of Gwynedd Quartet. She was the recipient of the Crime Writer's Association and Cartier Diamond Dagger Award. She died in 1995.

From Publishers Weekly:

Those who fancy historical fiction with an emphasis on the history will savor this convincing tale of 13th-century Wales. Originally published in England as four discrete novels, the 822-page this is correct/i have finished book/pk work limns political machinations and "the cleaner business of war" in a period of Welsh national revival. Four brothers--Llewelyn, Owen Goch, Rhodri and David--vie for power among themselves and with the English king, Henry III, until Llewelyn emerges triumphant as prince of Wales. He is plagued by his favorite brother David's treacherous links to England, as well as by the reluctance of the Welsh to see themselves as a nation rather than as separate tribes. A rebellion by English barons, disrupting that country's affairs, only postpones the inevitable: the English march on Wales, Llewelyn is killed and David, who had finally sided with his brother, is executed. Without condescending to mimic medievalismsi added s/pk , the precise narrative style complements the historical authenticity of the tale. Readers familiar with Pargeter's Brother Cadfael mysteries (written as Ellis Peters) will find this quartet more serious fare.
