      The third book in the Brother Cadfael series, "Monk's Hood," is a powerful parable of forgiveness. The more I read of this series, the better it gets. I recommend it to anyone. Historically, I have not been much of a reader of mystery writers. The Chronicles of Brother Cadfael have made me a fan of Ellis Peters's writing/5().
