Read full description of the books The Virgin In the Ice:This is a mystery/historical fiction of the Cadfael Chronicles. I read it some time ago but somehow neglected to share my deep and insightful views with everyone here at Goodreads.
How remiss of me.
If you are familiar with Cadfael and his "history" then you know that our monkish mystery solver is never allowed a peaceful life for long. (sad considering he lives in Shrewsbury Abbey [a real place by the way]). Here the love "interests" (Cadfael seems to draw "star-crossed lovers like honey does bees) are a bit different than in most of the other books I won't say why or how as that would be telling). That said murder is also still a factor in Cadfael's life.
As always we have a good mystery here with a nice "chunk" of history thrown in to boot. You don't go to these books "for" history but if you're interested in the period (as I am) you'll also find these interesting. I suppose it's like more seasoning on a good steak....
I can recommend this one as I can most of the other Cadfael books for mystery and historical fiction fans.
