5.0 étoiles sur 5 Who is killing the merchants at the Abbey's annual fair? 6 avril 2017

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 fourth novel in a series of 21 mysteries, "St. Peter's Fair," begins in July of 1139 as the monks from the Abbey of Saint Peter and Saint Paul prepare for the three-day annual fair in honor of their namesake saint. The local merchants appeal to Abbot Radulfus for a share of the money raised by the fair, in order to repair the damages from the siege of Shrewsbury the prior year (see "One Corpse Too Many," the second novel in this series), but he turns them down. Thomas of Bristol, a wealthy wine merchant is setting up his booth at the fair when he is approached by a group of young men, sons of the local merchants who make the same plea to him. He knocks one of them down, and a brawl ensues. When Thomas of Bristol's corpse is dredged out of the river the following day, the young man he knocked down becomes the prime suspect in his murder.

"St. Peter's Fair" has one of Ellis Peters' most dastardly villains--a true sociopath with no redeeming features. The embedded love story is also unusual in that the heroine initially chooses the wrong man and almost loses everything before she realizes her mistake.

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.

The Brother Cadfael mysteries are first class all the way. Great writing, a fascinating, superbly-researched historical period, and a likable medieval sleuth. This mystery series has been so highly rated by everyone for years that Ellis Peters probably doesn't need yet one more enthusiastic review. (Sadly, she is deceased.) But after reading some of these books years ago, I happened to watch the Brother Cadfael TV series, and became hooked again. It is worth it to read the same books that were turned into TV episodes, because the books contain more content and frankly, I think they are better than their corresponding TV shows. (And I loved the TV episodes for the most part.) I am starting with the first book in the series and re-reading them one by one. What a pleasure. St. Peter's Fair is the fourth book in the Chronicles of Brother Cadfael. While it does contain some violence, it is germane to the plot, and shouldn't be upsetting to the modern reader.

Another great read as I hopscotch around the Brother Cadfael books. I must confess that I may have read this one years ago, along with a few others but rereading is always a joy also!

What I possibly like the best is that the series is superimposed on a pivotal era in English history, and one that I love to read. The Civil Wars between the Empress Matilda and her cousin Stephen of Blois eventually gave birth to the Plantagenet Kings my very favorite group.

In this tale a murderer does his crimes while supposedly helping this war effort. We know that a lot of evil flourished at this point , when "God and His Saints Slept. Cadfael and his great friend Hugh Beringer, at this time deputy Sheriff of Shrewsbury, finally assisted by Philip a merchant's son, solve a complicated series of murders.
Recommended highly.
5.0 étoiles sur 5 Cadfael books are more character driven than mysteries 9 février 2014

My husband and I are big fans of the Brother Cadfael books. I admit to enjoying the books because they are more character and history driven than plot driven. These books are not for people who want a lot of excitement and drama in their mysteries. There is drama but not of the kind that we are accustomed to with television influence with car chases and guns being waved in people's faces. Some of the Cadfael books as reviews have pointed out are more historical novels than they are mysteries. That doesn't bother either my husband or me as we are reading them for the characters not necessarily always for the mysteries. One of the things I liked about St. Peter's Fair is the fact that the "bad" boy in the story turns out to be quite different than what you expect and the same is true with the "good" boy. As Cadfael himself often points out things are not always what they seem. The damsel in distress is actually quite a strong lady in her own right as is often the case in the Cadfael books. Yes Cadfael takes a less active role but he is definitely there and accounted for and sometimes his common sense and tenacious search for truth is needed more than his knowledge of herbs and potions. Cadfael somehow wins respect from almost everyone he meets with the possible exception of some of his fellow monks who look at him somewhat askance because he obviously "thinks outside the box." Yet heaven help any of the people in trouble who look to someone like Prior Robert or Brother Jerome for the insights only Cadfael can give. God who loves justice and truth can rely on his good servant Brother Cadfael to be His agent on earth.

Enjoyed. A little difficult to read late at night because of the older English. I needed my dictionary. Still, a good story. I like this author enough that I have purchased all of the series.
