My rating: 5 of 5 stars
This is a prequel to The Pillars of the Earth and takes place during the dark ages just before the big cathedrals surfaced. It is a great story of love and cruelty.
Ragna, a Norman noble is betrothed in marriage to an English nobleman, Wilf, and travels to his country to be married. They do spend some happy years before his unfaithful ways surface. In those times it was quite normal to have more than one wife and also very common to own a slave.
