A good story that kept my attention all the way through to the end.

While I didn't like or even identify with all the characters, I did feel like I was sufficiently familiar with the main players to keep up with them. There were a handful of minor characters that I would get fuzzy on at times, but overall I would say they were done well enough for me to follow.

I would recommend this to anyone who liked The Pillars of the Earth and want to relive that with a slightly different cast of characters. Honestly though, the characters feel like they are rehashed from the Pillars, but that's not necessarily a bad thing. As I said they are pretty well fleshed out even if sometimes a bit predicable.

The main plot lines are resolved in the end. I did feel bad about what happened to Ralph for some reason. I can't explain why since he certainly got what he deserved. I think I would have been less bothered if Philemon had suffered a similar end.
