SYNOPSIS
Brother Cadfael, in 1139 AD gardener to the Benedictine monastery at Shrewsbury and occasional detective, has in the four previous chronicles acquired the respect of critics and a large, affectionate readership. Here it is the imminence of a wedding that leads to murder. A 'marriage has been arranged' in a somewhat ruthless fashion between an ageing nobleman and a very young woman, coerced by greedy guardians
