We are Stars – The Pierces
Honestly this is one of the best love songs I’ve heard in a while. Such a sweet melody and meaningful lyrics!
California Dreamin’ – The Mamas & The Papas
Being a trademark of the California sound this sunshine pop song brings back nostalgic memories of idyllic trips to the beach and cheerful moments with friends.
Illegal – Shakira ft. Carlos Santana
I’ve been a fan of Shakira’s music since my childhood. So it came as a shock when I discovered that this little gem of a ballad was released in 2006. Combining pop and country elements it deals with the mourning for the loss of a lover while featuring Santana’s subtle but powerful guitar playing.
Rasputin – Majestic & Boney M.
This brilliant remix of the iconic 1978 disco song Rasputin is the highlight of my month!
The Raven in the Foregate by Ellis Peters
Near Christmas in 1141, Abbot Radulfus returns from London, bringing with him a priest for the vacant living of Holy Cross, also known as the Foregate. The new priest is a man of presence, learning and discipline, but he lacks humility and the common touch.
When he is found drowned in the millpond, suspicion is cast upon a young man who arrived with the priest’s train and was sent to work in Brother Cadfael’s garden. Indeed, he is soon discovered to be an impostor.
Yet another time, the familiar task of sorting out the complicated strands of innocence and guilt falls to the hands of Brother Cadfael.
The Rose Rent by Ellis Peters
The late spring of 1142 brings dismay to the Abbey of Saint Peter and Saint Paul, for there may be no roses by June 22nd. On that day the young widow Perle must receive one white rose as rent for the house she has given to benefit the abbey or the contract is void. When nature finally complies, a pious monk is sent to pay the rent – and is found murdered beside the hacked rose-bush.
The abbey’s wise herbalist, Brother Cadfael, follows the trail of bloodied petals. He knows the lovely widow’s dowry is far greater with her house included and she will likely wed again.
But before Cadfael can ponder if a greedy suitor has done the 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 – or there will be more tears…
