Summary (From the publisher):

After a mild autumn, December of 1142 brings a smothering silent blanket of snow. Thus it comes about that the guest hall of the Benedictine Abbey of Saint Peter and Saint Paul is damaged, and the brothers must repair its roof before the danger worsens.

The treacherously icy conditions are to prove near-fatal for brother Haluin. He slips from the roof in a terrible fall, sustaining such grave injuries that he makes his deathbead confession to the Abbot and Brother Cadfael. A startling story of trespasses hard for God or man to forgive emerges.

But Haluin does not die.

On his recovery, he sets out on a journey of expiation, with Cadfael as his sole companion. An arduous trip, it leads to some shocking discoveries. And to murder...

Once again, Brother Cadfael must abandon his herbiary and turn detective.
