In AD 1141, civil war over England's throne leaves a legacy of violence—and the murder of a knight dear to Brother Cadfael. In the spring, a flood of pilgrims comes to the celebration of Saint Winifred at the Abbey, carrying with it many strange souls … and perhaps the knight's killer. Brother Cadfael sees all: the prosperous merchant who rings false; an angelic, lame boy and his beautiful, dowerless sister; and two wealthy penitents. Cadfael sets out to uncover the strange tale that accompanies these travelers but instead unearths a quest for vengeance, witnesses a miracle, and finds himself on a razor's edge between death or the absolution of love.
