EuSei

Very disappointing, the real “action” only starts way passed half of the book. I managed to read the whole book (although, I confess, I started skipping paragraphs near the end), but the scene where the culprit was discovered, was analyzed, its reasons and modus operandi repeated ad nauseam. Sister Frevisse is constantly considering her own feelings, how she should think—like a novice would have done—and either acting like an individual with lots of power or devoid of it, very contradictory. Mrs. Frazer was a good writer and certainly did a lot of research about that era, but I will stick with the Brother Cadfael series by Ellis Peter.
