When I asked the other day whether you'd read any Ellis Peters, I had not thought of choosing one of her books for the Cornflower Book Group, but Efi in her comment on that post suggested it, Susan seconded it, so why not?
I've gone for the first of the Brother Cadfael Chronicles, A Morbid Taste for Bones (first published 1977), in which the herbalist monk becomes detective when a dispute over saintly relics results in murder. Popular books, these - though I shall bear in mind Erika's comment on lack of period feel - but as someone with no particular knowledge of the time (1137) and place, I look forward to being entertained, and if this one goes down well there are many more in the series to enjoy.
The book should be readily available to borrow or buy; I got my copy from The Book Depository (and they will deliver worldwide free), Amazon UK has it, as does Amazon US (in both paperback and Kindle version) while bookshops should have it or be able to get it for you easily. We're going to be discussing Winifred Holtby's South Riding on 26th. February, so let's go back in time to the Middle Ages and talk about A Morbid Taste for Bones four weeks later on Saturday, 26th. March. As always, anyone who'd like to read the book (or who has already read it) is welcome to join in.
