Review by kaebs
Good story, good characters, well written. It's Ken Follett, what else can I say? Off course it is not 'Pillars', but this book is certainly a good read. I nice epic story about the interlinked lives of two people, spanning two countries, and with plenty of historical accounts mixed in.
