When a newly plowed field given to the Benedictine Abbey of Saint Peter and Saint Paul yields the body of a young woman, Brother Cadfael finds himself in a delicate situation. The field was once owned by a local potter named Ruald, who has abandoned his beautiful wife Generys to take monastic vows. Generys was said to have gone away with a lover, but now it seems that she has been murdered. With the arrival at the Abbey of young Sulien Blaunt, a novice fleeing homeward from the civil war raging in East Anglia, the mysteries surrounding the corpse start to multiply.
Crack another case with Cadfael.

Cadfael, of course, because he's the reason we read the story.
Everything. Every single thing.
No, nothing extreme.
New reader. Between his accent and trying to read so fast, I could not understand much of it.
Much better. Read slower and more distinctly.
As a story, yes. Difficult to listen to.
