Eighteenth Chronicle of Brother Cadfael in which the Celtic / Danish interweavings make for a good Welsh folktale of the price of honor and the cost of familial ties. Cadfael observes all and betrays none.

The personal always runs a deep current under the political. It is religion that often makes good people do bad things.

Very interesting and very surprising. These books are historically accurate (in general) so it was a very interesting read.

Another wonderful mystery set in the summer of 1144. Brother Cadfael is captured by the Danes with little hope of escape. He cannot return to Shrewsbury until a truce is declared, or a full scale war breaks out and a murderer is brought to justice.
