The Heaven Tree (first volume of Heaven Tree Trilogy)
on 21 April 2004
I found this the most enjoyable of Edith Pargeter's historical novels. Set in the time of King John, it tells the story of Harry Talvace, mastermason.
The characters are beautifully observed and portrayed, showing a depth of insight into human psychology which is a hallmark of Pargeter's work. She also is a first-rate story-teller. I found this hard to put down.
Enthralling, and at times almost unbearably moving.
