This review is from: The Heaven Tree: Number 1 in series (Paperback)
I first read this book 20 years ago and bought the trilogy. I rediscovered it recently and have enjoyed it more the second time around. I don't tend to keep books to re read, but this is a must for any lover of historical fiction. I even stopped reading another book because I didn't want to put this one down! A story of the harshness of the times in 13th Century Britain, whether you be freeman or villein, and the incredible friendship forged between a lad of noble birth and a villein. I really felt for them, especially at the very beginning, and the sad end.
