I am re-reading another Cadfael book. When I get lonely for Shrewsbury, I just pick up a book and there I am. I am truly gratefuly to Ellis Peters for an old friend (cadfael).

What's up with this review?
This book is a mystery, yet the review gives away the best part of the plot by revealing who is NOT the villain (which the author takes great pains to keep hidden until the end). From the review we also find out who ends up married to whom and what happens to them after.
This review should either be revised or removed.

I found a Brother Cadfael (Ellis Peters) book, Morderische Weinacht (Murderous Christmas) in German at an airport. I would like to read it with the English version to save on dictionary use. I can not find a corresponding English title.

Just so you are aware, Ellis Peters died in 1995. I believe there are 20 books in the Brother Cadfael series and unfortunately there will be no more.

"The Virgin in the Ice": it is beautifully wirtten and plotted, gives a panoramic, realistic view of the Middle Ages, is graffic, brutal and yet compassionate and loving. One of the author's most endearing qualities is that her heros, villains and victims are always human beings - the victim is never, EVER merely an excuse for the storyline. Let me know how you liked it.

Well, that's a hard question, because I think you should read the series from the first novel and then the sequels... However, One Corpse Too Many is a good book start with too. Another alternative: The Virgin In The Ice (good in this time of the year, at least in Holland with all the snow right now...).
