The Virgin in the Ice



by Ellis Peters

Published 1982

In this next book in the Cadfael series, Brother Cadfael finds himself doing a great deal of winter traveling.  It’s a very cold sort of book.

This particular mystery (excellent, as always) has excellent lessons in how God works through tragedy, and how our impulsive decisions can have a great deal of impact on others.  It also introduces a very important character for the future…  this series does an unbelievably good job of weaving twenty complete and individual stories into a harmonious whole.

My reviews for these books get rather redundant, because I hesitate to discuss details–I want everyone to read these books for themselves!  They are beautifully written mysteries, full of history and depth.  5/5.
