The Leper of Saint Giles: The Fifth Chronicle of Brother Cadfael

Unabridged Audiobook

Release Date
July 2010
7 hours 17 minutes
Setting out for the Saint Giles leper colony outside Shrewsbury, Brother Cadfael has more pressing matters on his mind than the grand wedding coming to his abbey. Yet as fate would have it, Cadfael arrives at Saint Giles just as the nuptial party passes the colony's gates. He sees the fragile bride, looking like a prisoner between her two stern guardians, and the bridegroom—an arrogant, fleshy aristocrat old enough to be her grandfather—and he quickly discerns that this union may be more damned than blessed.

Indeed, a savage murder will interrupt the May-December marriage and leave Brother Cadfael with a dark, terrible mystery to solve. The key to the killing—and a secret—is hidden among the lepers of Saint Giles. Now, Brother Cadfael's skills must ferret out a sickness not of the body, but of a twisted soul.

Annother excellent installment of the Brother Cadfael series. The narrator did well overall. Took one star off because it was occasionally jarring when she switched into affecting a character's voice.
