This is a 1000 page book about 4 children who grow up and survive the black plague. There's Gwenda, a poor theif who gets sold into sex slavery for a cow by her father and escapes; Merthin, a carpenter's apprentice who becomes a famous architect; Caris, a rich girl who wants to be a doctor and hates the church's rules; and Ralph, a total jerk who becomes a horrible, corrupt knight.
There are lots of twists and turns in this story. Right when things are going good, something bad happens again. You'll become so attached to the book, its as if you grew up with all the characters.
Don't worry, there's a happy ending. It's just very frustrating.
World Without End is a good book. I finished it in one week. Can you beat my record?
