With a deep understanding and sympathy for the beliefs, superstitions and aspirations of his charcters, the author with rare subtelty and insight recreates an evocative and authentic portrait of men and events of the time. He has managed to cover a large canvas of time, a gallery of characters, of different ages and period with an insight and understanding which is unusual.
