Storyline

The war is over and Maud has returned to France leaving King Stephen once again unchallenged. Richard returns to Kingsbridge just after William Hamleigh's attack on the market. Aliena has lost everything and can no longer support Richard's knighthood. Alfred sees an opportunity and asks Aliena to marry him, promising to support Richard as well. After Tom Builder's funeral, Alfred also offers himself as master builder promising to build a vaulted roof made of stone. When the day to bless the church arrives 8 months later, tragedy strikes leaving many dead. Events also reveal Aliena's betrayal of Alfred who promptly throws her out of the house. The tragedy also has an unwelcome effect on Bishop Waleran and Prior Philip. Jack meanwhile has long ago left Kingsbridge and gone off to France to find his father's family. Now without a place to live, Aliena sets off to find him. Written by garykmcd

Goofs

Jack Jackson walks to Saint Denis Cathedral, to view a Flamboyant facade: not only is this inaccurate with the real cathedral, which has a Romanesque facade, but the Flamboyant style postdates the events of this story by about 200 years. Additionally, the nave of Saint Denis would have probably been a Romanesque nave, if not an even earlier Carolin. The only portion of the church that would have characteristically Gothic features at this time would have been the ambulatory, just being built around this time. See more »
