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.
