I loved, loved, loved this book. In no particular order, some of the things I loved:
- Brother Cadfael himself. He has a past he's not ashamed of; and he won't let anyone else shame him for it either.
- The entire town of Gwytherin, their sense of justice and redemption, and the way they come together to protect their own.
- Sioned and Annest. They work within the strictures of their society to achieve their personal goals.
- The resolution. I wasn't surprised at who the culprit was, but the last couple of chapters threw me for a loop in how the issue was handled. I'll admit I was laughing very hard at certain parts near the end.
I'm going to continue with this series, to see where Cadfael's fortunes take him next.
