From the cover -
Soon after his arrival at the Benedictine monastery of Shrewsbury, Brother Cadfael finds himself on a mission to his Welsh homeland. Acting as translator, he must help his prior obtain the bones of Saint Winifred, which now rest in a small village grave.
The Welsh villagers are loath to part with the relics of a martyr said to have miraculous powers, but before an agreement can be reached, the one villager most outspoken in his dissent is found murdered. His lovely daughter is determined to find the killer - and Cadfael is eager to help.
Carefully, kindly, and with cunning enough to please any mystery fan, the good monk sets out to solve his first case. In the process, his heart is touched by two pairs of star-crossed lovers, and he just may effect a miracle of his own.
Brother Cadfael is an intriguing character, a man of the world who becomes a monk later in life, he's experienced much more than any of the other brothers. I will look forward to learning more about him.
Sending this to Glade1, as promised in the wishlist tag game. Hope she enjoys it!
