    1 thought on “The Scarlet Seed

    1. Had Harry Talvace, father, and Harry Talvace, son been real historical characters, they would have been historical heroes to me. I am left with Llewellyn Fawr and his son Daffydd, who cannot disappoint, in that category. This really is a fabulously dramatic series full of examination of moral questions and in the Best of HF traditions. The history used is pretty accurate too, which always makes me a happy reader!

    2. Gostei imenso desta trilogia e da história dos Talvace. Não posso dizer que tenha gostado tanto como dos Pillars of the Earth do Ken Follett mas ainda assim vale igualmente a pena lê-la. O primeiro livro (A Árvore da Vida) foi sem dúvida o meu preferido e é um livro que 'vive' bem sem os outros. A trama que apresenta é muito bonita e tem, para a mim, a parte mais interessante que é a da construção da catedral e das respectivas esculturas. A vida de Harry (mestre pedreiro), Adam, Benede [...]

    3. Like other readers of Edith Pargeter I did not want to get to the end of this book, and reached it all too soon. The ending though is no disappointment and many authors could learn a lot about ending books satisfactorily whilst allowing for life continuing after the last page, from her writing. She never closes the door to the story continuing whilst still giving a feeling of completion for the reader. Pargeter's writing brings her characters to life so vividly one does not think of them as hist [...]

    4. I read this last book with trepidation. It was difficult for me to get into it, difficult for me to finish it and difficult to write about it. I think my trepidation was two-fold. One, I loved it. I loved the characters, the setting, the writing, I didn't really want to finish and find the end. Two, I didn't want to be disappointed. While this later fear turned out to be unfounded, this is, unfortunately, the last book of the trilogy and it is time to release it.But I don't want to. This is one [...]

    5. I had tears at the end of this book, for the story through the three in the trilogy had formed such a connection in my mind. The third and final book is as emotional as the previous two, and has a happening that is fore warned ina previous book, but which I did not wish to happen, for I had seen how much the son had been formed into a strong manhood by his enemy. In some ways the enmity was not there by the end.Well worth reading.

    6. This final episode of The Heaven Tree Trilogy is Shakespearean in its drama and pathos, and filled with characters whose motivations moved me. I found the second book hard going but this third book was really engaging. Not as great as the first but a satisfying end to the tale of Talvace and Isambard.

    7. I have just finished this the third book in The Heaven Tree Trilogy, and wow what a fabulous journey it has been! I loved it. The author Edit Pargiter has a style of writing that although quite wordy and at first old fashioned is exactly the right style for the story, and has you on the edge of the seat wondering how it will all work out.Harry has been a hostage of Ralf Isambards for 4 years, since the day he came to kill Isambard in revenge for his fathers death. Isambard plays some hard, cruel [...]

    8. I found this entire trilogy to be fascinating and enthralling. The characters are richly detailed and the story that is unfolded over the course of the three books is compelling. The historical details are rich and thorough and the effortless way a modern person is transported into the time and place of these events speaks to the author's descriptive prowess, as well as to her understanding of the human condition that transcends time.

    9. Terminei de ler e já tenho saudades daquelas personagens fabulosas, tão humanas e tão reais. Chorei com as sua mágoas e ri com as suas alegrias, transmitidas por frases belíssimas, que li e reli com pena de as abandonar. Sem qualquer dúvida, a trilogia “A Árvore do Céu” é um dos meus livros favoritos e ficará para sempre na minha memória.

    10. Still not as good as the first yet there are scenes in here which are as beautiful as the end of the first book. Isambard is a complex character who make us truly hate him at times and root for him at others, while Harry grows on us until we're almost unable to divide him from his father.The only thing was that the epilogue stole the impact of that great ending.

    11. The final book in the trilogy was very heartbreaking. We know things have to come to an end, but they still make us sad. I have enjoyed the trilogy and hate to see the characters go.

    12. Absolutely fantastic. Hard to match in content and writing style. A top 5, when taken in its entirety as a trilogy, with Les Miserables, Brothers Karamazov and a Tale of Two Cities.
