The Manual - Epictetus - A Short Summary and Review

The Leper of Saint Giles - Ellis Peters - A Short Summary & Review


A short summary of The Leper of Saint Giles:

Brother Cadfael and the mystery of the murdered Baron.

My favorite Ellis Peters quote from the book:

"Thinking is best after prayer, but will be none the worse for a meal and a glass of wine."

Questions to ponder while reading The Leper of Saint Giles:

Would you ever marry for money?

Have you ever considered the religious life?

My review of the book:

Another great "Monk Murder Mystery".

Well-woven plotline.

Several unexpected twists and turns.
