A great story about a family of Scottish immigrants in 1766. Ken Follett is amazing!
A wonderful book that only took me 2 days to read..I couldn't put it down. As usual, as in other stories of Follett's, there is a hero and a herion that are not only mismatched, but, there is no way that a romance could ever happen for them. She is from the Scottish gentry and he is a slave in the coal mines. Disparing of the brutality of the owners and over-seers of the coal mine, he decides to run away. His mis-adventure lands him in a slave ship headed for America..the same ship that is carrying her, as the new bride of a Virginia plantation owner. This story has all of the wonderful characteristics of Follett's other novels, well told and riveting. He makes you feel as if you are there with the characters, sharing their joys, pain, heartaches and troubles.
Another excellent Ken Follett book. I fyou are a fan of Pillars and World Without End, you will be pleasantly surprised to find the same writing style but now in 1700 Scotland. The way he makes the characters so real in every century and every situation. A wonderful book.
Not my usual reading, but I really enjoyed this
A great author. His character's are a study of human nature. Historical fiction at its best. He puts the reader
in the time and place
