Review: Brother Cadfael’s Penance

Brother Cadfael's PenanceBrother Cadfael’s Penance by Ellis Peters
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The last volume of The Chronicles of Brother Cadfael doesn’t disappoint the true fan of Cadfael and his adventures in the time of upheaval in which the series is set.

This volume again, like a few of the latter volumes, focusses less on the discovery and uncovering of murder most foul, and more on the story of Brother Cadfael himself. Bringing to a close some of the overarching storylines, this volume is a fitting conclusion to the series.

I have enjoyed my journey through The Chronicles – more than I thought I would to be honest – and now that I have come to end, I feel, like Cadfael, a certain peace.
