Plot Summary

Lilwin, a traveling minstrel, entertains at the wedding feast of the son of wealthy Walter Aurifaber but incurs the wrath of the bride's grandmother when he accidentally breaks a piece of crockery. When the wealthy man is apparently bludgeoned to death and a great deal of money stolen, suspicion falls on the young man, who becomes the sparrow of the title when he seeks sanctuary at the abbey from an angry mob. Although it later turns out that Aurifaber survived his attacker, further complications arise from Lilwin's romantic involvement with one of the household's serving girls, the murder of a blackmailing gossip, and the rivalry between the young bride and her controlling sister-in-law.

Quotes [last lines]
Sheriff Hugh Beringar: Old friend, I doubt even you can get Susanna into the fold among the lambs. Now she chose her way and it's taken her far out of the reach of man's mercy. Oh, and now I suppose you'll tell me that God's reach is longer than man's.
Brother Cadfael: It had better be. Otherwise we're all lost.
Sheriff Hugh Beringar: Hmmm...
