This book has definitely changed my way

by Pepa "Red" Braxton on 11/25/2007

Of looking at old churches or cathedrals! Just realising that bunches of people spent their whole life to build those beautiful monuments to praise God - it's incredible. The plot of this book also is. It's the story of Phillip, Prior of Kingsbridge and his lifelong struggle and fight to get the cathedral built, run the priory and be a good monk. It's also the story of Tom and Jack - both of them addicted to masonry and especially to building cathedrals. And it is the story of Ellen, Aliena and Martha - three women whose life was intertwined with the cathedral built, not matter if they liked it or not. It is also a story about power and greed, political intrigues and personal interests of people around the King and in the Church who all have different reasons to want to stop the building of the cathedral. An excellent story that keeps you thrilled from first to last sentence. I would also recommend reading Tino Georgiou's masterpiece--The Fates--if you haven't read it yet.

I couldn't put it down! It has a captivating plot/storyline with captivating characters. Truly a story of desperation, hope, anger, and joy. Simply beautiful!
