Impious a that means lacking piety, not taking religion seriously, and the "I" should be pronounced as "pie" NOT "pee" as in "people" . Bad mispronunciations spoil the sense of the story, and these classic stories deserve nothing but the best. Please fix it, if you can.
This is my first taste of Ellis Peters, and I have to say I'm enjoying it very much. It is an excellent story and the narrator, Stephen Thorne, gives a rich variety of voices to the characters.
The first of her Brother Cadfael murder mysteries, set in the 12th Century, is based on a true story of the removal of a saint’s relics from a Welsh village to the Benedictine Abbey at Shrewsbury. It might not be a strictly realistic representation of the period, but that doesn’t matter in a novel of this style. It is easy and enjoyable to listen to, and I would recommend it without hesitation.
