Chris J. asked:

Has anyone else noticed the similarity between The Heaven Tree Triology and Ken Follet's The Pillars of the Earth, which was published about 28 years after The Heaven Tree? Has Follet ever acknowledged Pargeter's novels as a major influence on TPOTE?

Eleanor I had exactly the same thought!! I felt like I was reading the same story.
Susan I don't know ... but having read The Pillars of the Earth first, when I read this, the comparison was striking! I liked Pargeter's much better though; nice to know her's was first.
