The year is 1142, and all England is in the iron grip of a civil war. And within the sheltered cloisters of the Benedictine Abbey of Saint Peter and Saint Paul, there begins a chain of events no less momentous than the political upheavals of the outside world. First, there is the sad demise of Richard Ludel, Lord of Eyton, whose ten year old son and heir, also named Richard, is a pupil at the Abbey. Supported by the Abbot Radulfus, the boy refuses to surrender his new powers to Dionysia, his furious, formidable grandmother. A stranger to the region is the hermit Cuthred, who enjoys the protection of Lady Dionysia, and whose young companion Hycacinth, befriends Richard. Despite his reputation for holiness, Cuthred's arrival heralds a series of mishaps for the monks. When Richard disappears and a corspe is found in Eyton forest, Brother Cadfael is once more forced to leave the tranquility of his herb garden and devote his knowledge of human nature to tracking down a ruthless murderer.

About the Author:

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:

For those of us who are used to Brother Cadfael read by Stephen Thorne and liking it that way, I can only say: Give this narrator a chance--you won't regret it. Roe Kendall brings a different depth to Brother Cadfael, a more measured tread, and a more considered rhythm. The year is 1142, and England is caught up in a civil war as two factions battle for the Crown, and turmoil eventually spills over into quiet and happy Shrewsbury. When people begin to die shortly after the appearance of a strange holy man, the Hermit Cuthred, Cadfael must work fast to keep his quiet hamlet safe. Ellis Peters does her usual neat job of history-cum-entertainment, and Roe Kendall does an equally neat job of delivery. Her take on Hugh, the sheriff, is a new one as well, and overall her presentation has a lyric, musical quality that is quite charming.
