Three vintage tales reveal how a former crusader became literature's greatest mystery-solving monk "Brother Cadfael sprang to life suddenly and unexpectedly when he was already approaching sixty, mature, experienced, fully armed and seventeen years tonsured." So writes Ellis Peters in her introduction to A Rare Benedictine-three vintage tales of intrigue and treachery featuring the monastic sleuth who has become the best-loved ecclesiastical detective since Father Brown. Although Cadfael has appeared in twenty novel-length chronicles, the story of his entry into the monastery at Shrewsbury has been known hitherto only to a few readers. Now his myriad fans can discover the chain of events that led him into the Benedictine Order.

I love the Brother Cadfael novels. I read them many years ago, and found them available now as eBooks. This book gives the background for Bro. Cadfael, explaining how a Crusader became a Benedictine in Shrewsbury.
