A marriage has been arranged, by greedy guardians, between an ageing nobleman and a very young woman.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 This fifth Brother Cadfael mystery introduces one of my favorite characters: Avice of Thornbury 16 avril 2017
Par ealovitt - Publié sur
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
This 12th century mystery series by Ellis Peters take place in a fog of civil war, where the English and Welsh were raiding each other’s borders and supporting one or another claimant to the English throne: Empress Maud or King Stephen. In spite of the ongoing violence, the author suffuses her novels with a deep sense of peace and contentment in the monastic life. A monk from the Benedictine Abbey of Saint Peter and Saint Paul at Shrewsbury, Brother Cadfael, the ex-Crusader-turned herbalist is her solver of murders and mysteries of the heart. Ellis weaves a rich tapestry of his daily life on the war-torn Welsh border.

This fifth novel in a series of 21 mysteries, "The Leper of St. Giles," begins in October of 1139 with the makings of a good old-fashioned melodrama: a beautiful young heiress who is being forced into marriage with a wicked sixty-year-old baron. The baron demonstrates his caddishness by striking a leper with his whip as the wedding party passes Saint Giles, the abbey's lazar house.

Now the bride-to-be is secretly in love with one of the bad baron's squires, and he returns her love. Both wedding parties are staying at the abbey, and two nights before the wedding, Brother Cadfael interrupts an assignation between the young lovers in his workshop. He sympathizes with them, especially when the bride's guardian bursts in and drags her young charge off. The next morning, the wicked baron accuses his lovelorn squire of theft, and the youngster escapes imprisonment by plunging into the Severn river.

Cadfael must somehow reunite the young lovers, even after murder rears its ugly head. This is one of my favorite books in this memorable series. Two strong characters are introduced, one of whom will pop up several times further into the series: the mysterious leper, Lazarus and the bad baron's mistress, Avice of Thornbury.

I am sure that if you've read this far into the Brother Cadfael mysteries, you will want to continue to the end. It will be a very satisfying and worthwhile journey.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Brother Cadfael is one of my favorite all-time characters 17 septembre 2016

I listen to these tapes a lot while I exercise. It helps to pass the time more quickly when I'm on the glider for 1/2 hour a day, and the stories draw me in. Brother Cadfael is one of my favorite all-time characters, and the Leper of St. Giles is one of my favorite stories. It has a bittersweet ending, but so do many of Ellis Peters' books and I have the entire series both in print and audiotape. (Yes, I am that fanatic about the series, despite minor flaws here and there.)

As always Peters has created fascinating g characters. I love the flowing, descriptive language. Plotting is superb and always satisfying with the twists. Unexpected murderers.
I read the series 20 years ago. I remember some characters, but delighted to not remember all the stories. They are new again.
Cadfael remains one of my favorite fictional characters.

I am not in a rut as sometimes happens in a series like this. On the contrary, I am thoroughly enjoying this one. The author is really good.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 young love and the wise and gently Brother Cadfael makes this ... 1 mai 2015
Par Nancy Kelleher - Publié sur
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
After reading several chapters I realized this was a story I saw on PBS several years ago. Because I had forgotten a lot of it I continued reading and the end truly surprised me mainly because I'd forgotten how it ended. The age old story of greedy relatives, young love and the wise and gently Brother Cadfael makes this a book worth reading again and again (even when you remember the ending.).
