THE COMPLETE CADFAEL CHRONICLES: 21 ebooks in one. Seventy years have passed since the conquest of England by William of Normandy. But following the death of Henry I, with no male heir, the country is divided – the armies of Henry’s daughter the Empress Maud and her cousin, King Stephen, mass to the West and East. Each would claim the crown. Beset by civil strife, caught between Stephen’s forces and the kingdoms of Wales, life in the border town of Shrewsbury continues as best it can. Even the Benedictine brothers of the Order of St Peter and St Paul cannot escape the encroaching war. And more often than not, the Abbey herbalist, a healer and skilled observer of human nature, Brother Cadfael, is called upon to use his more worldly talents in pursuit of justice. Cadfael ap Meilyr ap Dafydd (known simply as Brother Cadfael) is a Welsh monk, herbalist and apothecary of Shrewsbury Abbey. He entered the Benedictine order in 1120 after sixteen years in the armies of Britain and Normandy. As a soldier and sea captain he fought in the Holy Land, serving at the fall of Antioch and the storming of Jerusalem. As a young man, he was betrothed to Richildis Gurney, but never married. He has an illegitimate son, Olivier de Bretagne, by the Saracen widow Mariam of Antioch. This ebook contains: A RARE BENEDICTINE: The Advent of Brother Cadfael. A MORBID TASTE FOR BONES.

A true story of life after death by a skeptical corporate lawyer. He tells about the many surprising and ingenious signs that came to him and several others following the death of his wife. Signs that make their divine source explicit. Signs so moving and convincing that his faith is restored, his life transformed. Significantly, a prominent and historic New England church plays a major role, as do three senior ministers. The first sign appears in the sanctuary with a minister as a co-witness. Millions of Americans have received comforting after-death contacts, but are unsure how such experiences fit into traditional religious beliefs. In an important first, such contacts coming directly and spontaneously from deceased loved ones are shown to have a biblical basis and to fulfill biblical promises.
