Book Description

Jan. 4 1996
THE HERETIC'S APPRENTICE: In the summer of 1143 two visitors arrive at the Abbey of Saint Peter and Saint Paul- one dead and two very much alive. But when a violent death ensues, Brother Cafael is called once more to turn detective and solve the murder- but matters are complicated still further by the marvellous treasure box in Elave's care...THE POTTER'S FIELD: During the ploughing of the Potters Field in October 1143 the grisly remains of a woman's body are unearthed. Abandoned by her husband, the tenant potter, rumour had it that the woman had returned to her homeland- perhaps with a lover. But the discovery of the corpse on Abbey land raises all sorts of questions. THE SUMMER OF THE DANES: In April 1144 Brother Cadfael leaves his monastery once more representing the bishop on a matter of church diplomacy. Cadfael does not forsee trouble on this errand, but then becomes entangled in the affairs of Heledd, a young woman desperate to escape an arranged marriage, and in conflict between Owain Gwynedd and his treacherous brother Cadwaladr...

Ellis Peter’s Cadfael stories are very readable. She is an excellent writer who makes the reader forget they are reading a book about imaginary people. I would love to sit down with Cadfael and talk about the things he has done and the places he has visited.
5.0 out of 5 stars The Sixth Brother Cadfael Omnibus Nov. 12 2013
By Cheryl Andre - Published on Amazon.com
I have loved reading the Brother Cadfael series, so giving them to a fellow Anglophile and lover of the Middle Ages has doubled my pleasure. I will probably borrow them back to reread after yet another friend and his wife have finished them too. Great reading, and three books in one volume just trebles the pleasure.

This is the next to last of the collection, so I am reading it as slowly as possible. It takes me into another world. I will hate it when there are no more.
