    I love reading the books in this series because they have the real feel of medieval England I am hard pressed to find any 21st century speech or expressions.In this book there are lots of Welsh names Journeys Pilgrims Hard to follow relationships It was the Welsh names that got me confused, by the end of the book I had everybody figured out, but it was

    Fascinating historical fiction set York, England in the late 1300 s The Black Death has mostly passed, though it makes a recurrence in this installment and the confusing politics of church and state take center stage, as ...

    Hard to followHad this come with some background prior to the story, it would have beenenjoyable I had trouble with all the new characters and often wondered what the point was I did enjoy the references to the Canterbury tales.

    This sixth entry in the Owen Archer series moves our hero out of his usual milieu and has him returning to the land of his birth Wales England is at war with France and Owen is dispatched to find 40 archers to help protect a vulnerable area He takes off with Geoffrey Chaucer so again we have that wonderful mix of fictional and historical characters blending beautifully togethe

    This is the sixth Owen Archer mystery, the first I have read and possibly the last This is a Medieval mystery set in the late Middle Ages Owen Archer is working for the Duke of Lancaster, looking to recruit archers in South Wales for his master and also to check if the defences are sufficient should a French fleet invade Owen Archer is of Welsh origin but hasn t been back to his homel

    It seems that Robb is copying Ellis Peters Brother Cadfael mystery series A medieval mystery although in 14th century rather than 12th century , in England with the main protagonist being Welsh The main character of this novel, Owen, doesn t have the charisma that I love so much in Brother Cadfael This novel jumps around between a lot of characters who are all wandering around southern Wales, crossin

    I read the first five books in this series years ago, so I was expecting to reacquaint myself with Lucie, an apocethary in York, but this was all about her husband, Owen Archer, who has to go on an errand to Wales for the Duke of Lancaster It s an interesting mystery, but I was a bit confused by the Welsh names and political situation, also by the switching among three different POVs by three main characters

    While it definitely doesn t rank as the worst book I ve ever read or tried to read A Gift of Sanctuary violates one of my personal rules for what makes a mystery good great It s a blatant case of too many cooks spoiling the broth There are a multitude of characters connected to the mystery of a man s death, all of whom have their own agendas One in particular seems to have no motive for his involvement other than ca

    One of the better books in the Owen Archer series This one truly was a mystery until close to the end The only thing that keeps it from being a five star book was the death of a main character and only that because the death happens in Wales and not York I understood the reasoning, but did not see how it advanced the story However, one of the reason that I enjoy the Archer books so much is that Robb does very well at her de
