The Sixth Cadfael Omnibus : The Heretic's Apprentice, the Potter's Field, the Summer of the Danes Paperback
by Ellis Peters
THE HERETIC'S APPRENTICE: In the summer of 1143 two visitors arrive at the Abbey of Saint Peter and Saint Paul- one dead and two very much alive.
But when a violent death ensues, Brother Cafael is called once more to turn detective and solve the murder- but matters are complicated still further by the marvellous treasure box in Elave's care... THE POTTER'S FIELD: During the ploughing of the Potters Field in October 1143 the grisly remains of a woman's body are unearthed.
Abandoned by her husband, the tenant potter, rumour had it that the woman had returned to her homeland- perhaps with a lover.
But the discovery of the corpse on Abbey land raises all sorts of questions. THE SUMMER OF THE DANES: In April 1144 Brother Cadfael leaves his monastery once more representing the bishop on a matter of church diplomacy.
Cadfael does not forsee trouble on this errand, but then becomes entangled in the affairs of Heledd, a young woman desperate to escape an arranged marriage, and in conflict between Owain Gwynedd and his treacherous brother Cadwaladr...
