>I absolutely loved this book. The story revolves around a cathedral, who built it, where it was built, how it was built and the joys and frustrations felt by all the characters in the story. The characters are brilliantly developed, humble monks, power driven bishops, simple builders, greedy lords, clever women, etc. It was filled with political intrigue, revengeful plots, and secret loves. Really, an amazing book! I highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys an epic historical fiction novel.
