This normally should be avoided. which case is this design for ? Enterprise ? YOu need to have your switches in hierarchical, scalable model, like core/distribution/access etc, to have a good design on your network. Give us more info and we will be able to help you..
I worked for a metro ISP a while back and due to the network being so old and so many customers we couldn't do too much infrastructure redesigning. so we implemented a STP ring. It worked like a charm. We only ran STP on the ring and disabled it on trunks going to "spoke" switches and customer sites. very fast convergence. So yes, if anyone of the switches fails or one of the links is broke then STP will unblock the blocked port and traffic will flow the other way and all switches can talk to each other. This isn't the ideal design at all, but it works. depends on your environment.
