From Publishers Weekly
Eighteen years after Pillars of the Earth weighed in with almost 1,000 pages of juicy historical fiction about the construction of a 12th-century cathedral in Kingsbridge, England, bestseller Follett returns to 14th-century Kingsbridge with an equally weighty tome that deftly braids the fate of several of the offspring of Pillars' families with such momentous events of the era as the Black Death and the wars with France. Four children, who will become a peasant's wife, a knight, a builder and a nun, share a traumatic experience that will affect each of them differently as their lives play out from 1327 to 1361. Follett studs the narrative with gems of unexpected information such as the English nobility's multilingual training and the builder's technique for carrying heavy, awkward objects. While the novel lacks the thematic unity of Pillars, readers will be captivated by the four well-drawn central characters as they prove heroic, depraved, resourceful or mean. Fans of Follett's previous medieval epic will be well rewarded.

Thank you ApoloniaX. Looking forward to reading this.
May take some time to get round to it, though. Big TBR Mountain!

Dear ApoloniaX,
When I said it might take me a while to get round to this, I didn't think it would be ten years! In fairness, I did read Pillars of the Earth first, plus of course, like most Bookcrossers, I now have more books to read than I ever had before!!

I enjoyed this book just as much as the first one and it doesn't seem at all like 1025 pages long! I found that I had developed such a like or dislike for the characters that I wanted to carry straight on where the book left off, but unfortunately there is a 200 year gap between each book in this wonderful little series.

The book now travels to an other Bookcrosser.

A nice compact edition that has been in my hands far too long. Enjoy.

Received in the post from Deltic as part of a swap. Thanks very much. Really looking forward to reading this but am passing it to my husband first as he's a little short of reading material at the moment, unlike myself.
