This hovers between 3-4 stars. The story of two foster brothers, one noble and one not, who flee to Venice from early 1200s England, and then return to England as one is a master mason and his skills are needed to build a church.

It is a bit plodding in the execution, and definitely not a quick read. It was written in 1960, and it is evident in the styling. Having said that, the characters are well drawn, and the plot is very well woven. It is the first of a trilogy,and I will probably continue to read the rest.
