Two women of similar appearance are presumed dead. Yet evidence is provided that show both are still alive. So why is there a body? Who is lying and why?

An older woman is dying of a wasting disease. Hugh is called off to war. A novice monk asks release from the church. A young woman seeks love and provides Cadfael a clue that allows him to solve a mystery. So many inter-winding plot threads make this yet another wonderful mystery from Ellis Peters.

I feel that this is one of the best in a wonderfully good series of medieval mysteries.
When a man leaves his wife to join a monastery she supposedly finds a lover and runs away with him. However her body is later found in a freshly plowed field. The mystery builds from there, and Brother Cadfael is called in to help solve it.
