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. In the spring, a flood of pilgrims comes to the celebration of Saint Winifred at the Abbey, 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 and his beautiful, dowerless sister; and two wealthy penitents. In the name of justice, Cadfael sets out 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 between death or the absolution of love.

“Enchanting...medieval England comes marvously alive.” Washinton Post
“Stephen Thorne...has a feel for Peters’s distinctive prose style, making her use of medieval phrasing and vocabulary sound genuine and natural.” Library Journal
“Peters continues to provide the type of superior medieval mystery that has spawned a host of unabashed imitations.” Booklist
