Old Friend

I have just finished and enjoyed (again!) Brother Cadfael’s Penance by Ellis Peters.  Brother Cadfael is a 12th century monk, with a flair for solving 12th century mysteries.  Reading these stories is like visiting with a dear and long-time friend.  Cadfael is one of those fictional characters that I wish would be real and that I could meet in person.  Of  the whole series, this story  is undoubtedly my favorite, with Summer of the Danes in close second.   Ellis Peters is definitely on my “Favorite Authors” list.  She has also written modern stories as Ellis Peters, and more medieval stories as Edith Pargeter.
