About the Author:

Ellis Peters (1913-1995) was the pen name of English novelist Edith Pargeter, author of scores of books under her own name. She was a recipient of the Silver Dagger Award and the Cartier Diamond Dagger Award, conferred by the Crime Writers' Association of Great Britain, as well as the coveted Edgar, awarded by the Mystery Writers of America.

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.
