Summary

Summary

Christmas, AD 1141 Abbot Radulfus returns from London, bringing with him a priest for the vacant living of Holy Cross (known as the Foregate), a man of presence, scholarship and discipline, but neither humility nor the common touch. When he is found drowned in the mill-pond, suspicion is cast in many directions, not least towards a young man who came in the priest’s train, sent to work in Brother Cadfael’s garden. For he has little obvious priestly calling. Indeed, he soon attracts the friendship of a girl both beautiful and formidable.

To Brother Cadfael is left the familiar task of sorting the complicated strands that define guilt and innocence.

“A spirited and engrossing mystery…Lush, evocative descriptions bring medieval England brilliantly to life.” Publishers Weekly
