it was amazing
Read in January, 1991

Re-reading (again) this wonderful Brother Cadfael mystery. I discovered Ellis Peters too late to get many firsts. So if anyone out there has some first additions, I am interested. Ellis Peters details in these books will blow you away. I love all her books and there's not many I haven't read now.

So it's the morning after finishing the Rose Rent. And every time I read this book, I think it's one of my favorites. There's not alot of background political movement in this chronicle, unlike most of the other Brother Cadfael series. I love the character of Judith Pearle, a successful business woman in danger because she's a widow. She finds herself pressured about not remarrying, especially by would-be suitors often more interested in her money than her love. The ending is such a satisfying conclusion.
