Review: The Heretic’s Apprentice

The Heretic's ApprenticeThe Heretic’s Apprentice by Ellis Peters
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Another wonderful volume in the ongoing Chronicles of Brother Cadfael series which in this volume deals tangentially with one those aspects of Church history – the allegation and prosecution of heresy – which is both a blight on the life of the Church and a necessary part of the life of the Church.

The story, as always, involves the untimely death of residents of Shrewsbury (to which I make a mental note that I would never want to live there!) and the interaction between the monastic Brother Cadfael and the Sheriff of Shropshire in trying to untangle the mysteries that surround that untimely death in order to seek the truth.

Another engaging story, well constructed and crafted by Ellis Peters, that engages the reader and draws them into the life of the characters and the storyline.
