This is another great Follett piece that weaves the lives and times of such distant families into the tapestry of life and then connects them with such clarity. I never experienced the 'skipping' issue noted earlier. There were certainly references to sexual incidents as one reviewer pointed out, but nothing more than we all experience in life. To omit these references would dilute the work as it helps paint the whole picture. Funny how sexual references will be pointed out as distasteful, but the references to violence go without mention. Not that they are out of place in this book, I just mention as a point. The magic of Follett's work is his ability to create lives and in the times we are all familiar with. Well Done. Encore!
