I'm sending it out into the world to a fellow reader!
Received a wonderful box o' mysteries today from DiamondLight. I'm going to read some and pass some others along to my mystery-loving friends. We'll release when we're through (possibly at Bouchercon in Las Vegas this fall -- seems an appropriate place).
This one's off to avanta7 early next week.

In the year of our Lord 1141, civil war over England's throne leaves a legacy of violence -- and the murder of a knight dear to Brother Cadfael. And with gentle bud-strewn May, a flood of pilgrims comes to the celebration of Saint Winifred at the Abbey of Saint Peter and Saint Paul, carrying with it many strange souls...and perhaps the knight's killer.
Brother Cadfael's shrewd eyes see all: the prosperous merchant who rings false, an angelic lame boy, his beautiful dowerless sister, and two wealthy penitents. In the name of justice Cadfael decides to uncover the strange and twisted tale that accompanies these travelers. Instead he unearths a quest for vengeance, witnesses a miracle, and finds himself on a razor's edge obetween death of the absolution of love. (cover blurb)
It's hard to write journal entries months after one has finished the book in question. Now, some four or five months after I read this, I'm having trouble remembering details.
I remember getting a little confused about all the players and having to re-read a section or two to get it straight in my head, but as I recall, I was home sick on cold medication while I was reading this. Overall I liked the story. Brother Cadfael is an interesting character with an interesting backstory, more and more of which peeps through as the series progresses. Someday I may actually read the books in proper order.
Obtained from the shelf of BookCrosser avanta7
in anticipation of an upcoming weekend of wild releasing.
