The Brothers of Gwynedd Quartet

I'm sure the stories will be wonderful as her Cadfael books were! But publishing all 4 books in one edition...if you have poor eyesight (even WITH glasses) you may have an incredibly hard time reading this edition. The print is so small it was impossible for me to read even with the magnifying eyeglasses...
