] I read and enjoyed that one immensely. And Sarum will definately be one I'll be interested in later. Or anything else this gentleman writes. If you enjoy this author, there is another who writes of similar topics and much better, his detail extraordinary. I cannot off-hand recall his name and unfortunately I recently cleared off all his books from my bookshelf to make room for others. But when I do think of his, I let you know. (and just in case someone might be able to come up with this author, he wrote a book with the building of a cathedral as the center background, his major characters including the master mason who is put in charge of building it. There is a woman who makes it big selling wool. Most of the book takes place in England. Another book of his revolved around a coal mining town in Scotland. The main character runs off with the mine's owner's daughter. I think he wrote The Eye of the Needle. Does this ring anybody's bell?
Madame, I think the author you might be trying to remember is Ken Follett. The title of the book about the cathedral in England I think might be "Pillars of the Earth" if that is not the correct title, forgive me, I just remember that I enjoyed that book very much and the word "pillar"is part of the title. Hope this helps. Sincerely Vickie
