Excellent follow up to "The Pillars of the earth". Great character development. It is hard to choose who is your favorite. One would like to root for them all. Even the bad guys are likeable.

Review
This book was highlighted at the Library. The billing was "Start a new series". My family likes to read out loud while on road trips, so I thought I would read it prior to our road trip.
This is a great book for the 10 and up. The author alternates between two main characters of which one is a 15yo boy. His mother being the other main character, who starts in the first chapter. You sympathize with the main characters right away and the back story is very clear.
The author is able to tie the back story together without cheating the reader by giving too much away during the story.
This is a book that does not allow you to sit still. That is one of the reasons why I think it would be great for the young reader.
