Brother Cadfael - A Light On The Road To Woodstock - BBC Radio Audiobook - cheops
Adapted from the books by Ellis Peters and read by Nigel Anthony.
A Brother Cadfael story - set in Autumn of 1120 - in which he returns from the Crusades to find treachery and intrigue in the quiet corridors of England...
This story forms the first part of 'A RARE BENEDICTINE' - three tales which chronicle the events that led Brother Cadfael into the Benedictine Order.
‘Brother Cadfael sprang to life suddenly and unexpectedly when he was already approaching sixty, mature, experienced, fully armed and seventeen years tonsures.’
So wrote Ellis Peters in her introduction to A RARE BENEDICTINE – three vintage tales of intrigue and treachery, featuring the monastic sleuth who has become a cult figure of crime fiction. The story of Cadfael’s 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 let him into the Benedictine Order.
Two episodes of approximately thirty minutes each - summaries witheld to avoid spoiling the plot.
Produced by Joanne Reardon.
