SYNOPSIS
It is the Autumn of 1140 A.D. and Brother Cadfael (of the Benedictine House of Saint Peter and Saint Paul at Shrewsbury) finds himself playing the part of the 'devil's lawman' at a conference of his superiors. Two novices are being offered to the Order and the problem is whether to accept them. In the event Meriet Aspley, aged nineteen, is accepted.
