I almost hate to face the realization that eventually I will have read all of the Cadfeal novels. These are so good, not just as mysteries, but as descriptions of life as it was lived in 12th century Britain. Peters' characterizations are excellent.
In this novel, Peters has Cadfeal solve mysteries involving a dead woman, two young nobles lost in a hard winter's landscape, a pillaging band of warriors, a monk with a bad conscience, and more. And it all ends in an unexpected confrontation with his past.
This was another of the Cadfeal mysteries made into a video. Check your local library for a copy after you read the book.
In the Sixth Chronicle of Brother Cadfael, a monk-sleuth in medieval England, Cadfael investigates the circumstances surrounding the death of a young girl found in a frozen stream during the terrible winter of 1139.
#6 of this wonderful Brother Cadfael 12th century Welsh Borderlands series of not necessarily monastic mysteries.
What a way to die? I can't share spoilers with you, but the title is significant in everyone of Peter Ellis's Stories... By the Way The Name
Peter Ellis is a Pen name for someone else, a mystery within a mystery
who is the author then? Do you Know? Why the Pen name? hmm another mystery....These are very enjoyable historical Fictional Mysteries with the real thread of historical fact sown into the tapestry.
Another great in the Cadfael canon. Also significant because it introduces characters that will prove pivotal in other books in the series.
A good read--Like the setting of 10th Century British Isles
