Mystery & Suspense • 8 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2008

FORSAKEN SOUL will appeal to fans of Ellis Peters's medieval Brother Cadfael mysteries. Herbalist/sleuth Prioress Eleanor helps solve a murder during the summer of 1273 in the British village of Tyndal, where Martin the cooper has been poisoned at the local inn. Assisted by Crowner Ralf, Eleanor and the innkeeper's niece gather clues amid multiplying bodies and disappearing suspects. Vanessa Benjamin, a native of the British Isles, provides an atmospheric reading. She clearly differentiates between the religious and coarse country folk, as well as between the sexes. She easily delivers the strong emotions of the story and depicts the deep superstition and awe-laden religious context of the period.
