A lovely listen!

Set in the times of king Stephen and Empress Maude and the ensuing civil war this series of books combines basic forensics and poetic language. Given that they were brutal times, there are no gory and unpleasant scenes. A mystery that highlights the ways of human beings. The good points and the bad.

A ripping yarn!

An excellent story by Ellis Peters, which contains a number of strong threads that weave together. Brother Cadfael is sagacious and crafty and a truly wonderful creation. The narration was excellent particularly for the voice of Cadfael, which has a solid worldly Welsh sound, even the female characters are well done. I hope that more of these stories are put onto audible (I think that she wrote about 20 Brother Cadfael novels), as I would love to hear more.

Brilliant narrator.

Stephen Thorne’s narration brought the book to life. Unlike other narrators I’ve heard trying to pronounce Welsh words, he flowed naturally and fluently. A lovely performance.
