A late spring in 1142 has the Abbey monks dismayed, for there may be no roses by June 22nd. For three years, the wealthy young widow Judith Perle has rented her house to the monks for the price of a single rose each year. When nature finally complies, a pious monk is sent to pay the rent--and found murdered beside the hacked rose-bush. Without a rose, the monks' rental contract becomes void, adding greatly to the widow's dowry. But before Brother Cadfael can ponder if a greedy suitor has done this dreadful deed, another crime is committed. Now the good monk must thread his way through a tangle more tortuous than the widow's thorny bushes.… (mer)

Another fun story

I enjoy the Brother Carwell series and this was certainly a good one—a murder mystery with nice twists! I do think that these are best read on order. ( )

The Rose Rent is 13th of the Brother Cadfael Mysteries series by Ellis Peters. It works just as well reading it as a stand alone book. I have not read any of the other books in this series, and I thoroughly enjoyed this story. It was a good old cozy murder mystery to be enjoyed while relaxing by the fireside and sipping a cup of tea. The setting was ideal--a Benedictine monastery in Shrewsbury in 1142 with all the appropriate and well fleshed out inhabitants of both abbey and Shire in general, from the bronzesmith, Niall to the Sheriff and other inhabitants of the town. The star of this book and series is the shrewd Brother Cadfael, who characteristically of the quiet listener, makes the perfect sleuth.

The scenario revolves around a wealthy young widow, Judith Perle. She runs the family's prosperous clothing business which gives her an independent status highly unusual to women in this time period, outside of cloisters. She has donated a house to the abbey, free of charge with the exception of an annual rent to be paid once a year--delivery to her of a white rose from her favorite rosebush given her by her deceased husband.

Judith has a number of suitors and in addition one of the young Brothers at the monastery has been infaturated by her. After confessing such to his confessor, he if relieved of his duty of delivering the annual rose. However, not long after this confession his body is found near the rosebush, which has been seriously vandalized. It is at first thought to be a suicide, but after comtemplating the scene and looking over the evidence as such, Brother Cadfael and the others determine it was murder, as they piece together signs of foul play.

It is the first in a series of sinister events that transpire revolving around Judith and the rosebush upon which the annual rent, and therefore the contract that gifted the home to the abbey, depends. Next, Judith herself disappears during an early morning walk. It is soon determined that she was kidnapped, likely to prevent the payment of the rose rent, thereby negating the contract and freeing up the property. It is also assumed that it is likely one of her number of suitors who by besmirching her reputation could force her hand in marriage and lay his hands on her business and riches, a perfect motive. Brother Cadfael, along with her other loyal friends, begin their investigation and ongoing search for Judith.

More plot twists ensue, with another body mysteriously washing up with a couple of wounds to the head visible. Judith herself barely escapes the hands of the murderer, being rescued by a newly acquired suitor, one who she is beginning to have fond feelings for, and one who hasn't even admitted to himself yet that he indeed is a suitor.

The only remaining casualty is the rose bush itself, which is blown to bits by the murderer still at large in order to prevent the rose rent from being paid. Everyone is on edge, with the fiend still on the loose. But Brother Cadfael has finally uncovered the last evidence he needed pointing to the culprit who is then confronted and arrested.

We end the story on a happy setting with things finally beginning to look up for the young widow as it seems there is a budding romance growing between her and her rescuer. As I said, it's an enjoyable who-done-it! ( )

A la muerte de su esposo, la joven y adinerada viuda Judit Perle cede una de sus propiedades, una casa en el barrio de la Barbacana, a la abadía de Shrewsbury. Solo pide a cambio que, cada año, coincidiendo con el día en que se conmemora el traslado de los restos de santa Winifreda, se le entregue una rosa blanca. Su nueva situación despierta forzosamente el interés de muchos potenciales pretendientes, sobre todo si llegara a recuperar la casa de la Barbacana por incumplimiento del pacto por parte de la abadía...
En el verano del año 1142, la rosa aparece violentamente destrozada y el joven monje que debía entregarla, asesinado. Hay tantos sospechosos como pretendientes.

The abbey rents donated land from a young widow whose only request rent in the form of a rose annually. When a young monk requests to be replaced by another, trouble starts. First, the rose bush is hacked & the young monk is found dead next to the bush. Second, the young widow vanishes without a trace. When another body turns up & then the rose bush is set on fire, Cadfael knows he has little time to resolve 2 murders. When the widow turns up alive, Cadfael suspects its all about the donated land. But will Cadfael discover the murderer before the young widow becomes the next victim? ( )

A little better than average, and I like Cadfael in general. The problems of agency for a woman with property in feudal england, plus love and the usual bad / trapped actors make for a fun story. ( )

By reason of the prolonged cold, which lingered far into April, and had scarcely mellowed when the month of May began, everything came laggard and reluctant into that spring of 1142.
