On the heels of his Kingsbridge novels The Pillars of the Earth, World Without End, and Column of Fire, Ken Follett has once again proven his prowess with The Evening and the Morning. Set during the Viking invasion of England, Follett follows the stories of Edgar, an intelligent young shipwright struggling in poverty; Ragna, a fierce and ambitious French noblewoman; and a host of allies and enemies lurking around every corner. As always, Follett’s greatest strength is in the depth of his research, from medieval construction techniques to nuanced social rituals, lending a sense of total immersion that is impossible to evade. Fans of solid historical fiction, as well as the author himself, will not be disappointed. ~ Reviewed by Digby Baker-Porazinski
