The young miner, Mack McAsh, eventually finds himself looking for work and a new life in London. He becomes a leader amongst the working classes of the city and a target for vested interest groups. Framed for a crime he did not commit,  he is sent to serve seven years labour in the Colony of Virginia and finds himself scrambling to start anew.

On Jul 19, 2010, fict said:
I suppose it was a bit unfair to hope that Follett's "other" historical work would be of the magnificent caliber of Pillars of the Earth or World Without End. Not that this work was necessarily bad, but it was forgettable. Follett starts the novel off with enough gusto and seems to be building towards an epic, but then appears to lose interest in his subject about 2/3 through the book and cobbles together a quick, trite ending as if to wash his hands of it as quickly as possible.
