5.0 out of 5 stars The Heaven tree by Edith Pargeter, 15 April 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Heaven Tree: Number 1 in series (Paperback)
If you enjoyed The Pillars of the Earth or World Without end you are bound to enjoy this book. It is set in the time of King John and tells of a young Mason Harry Talvace, who has magic in his fingertips. He comes from a well to do family and hasa higly tuned sense of fairness and justice, he is brought up with his fathers veillans son Adam, they are like brothers and when an accident with a deer occurs in the forest, which could mean Adam losing his hand in punishment, the boys flea to safety. They go to France where they are apprenticed to a master mason. Before coming back to England to build a magnificent church for his lord Isambard, this sense of justice will eventually lead to anger resentment and death.
The story is very very good, Edith Pargeter is a fantastic writer, I spent half the book chewing my fingers in anticipation of what was going to happen. The writing style is fairly old fashioned but suits the book perfectly and her sense of anticipation and intrigue is amazing. I loved this book and am looking forward the reading the next 2 in the trilogy.
