Product Description:

Set in the turbulent times of 12th century England where civil war, famine, religious strife and battles over royal succession tore lives and families apart, The Pillars of the Earth tells the story of the building of a magnificent cathedral.

Against this richly imagined backdrop, filled with intrigue and treachery, Ken Follett draws the reader irresistibly into a wonderful epic of family drama, violent conflict and unswerving ambition. From humble stonemason to imperious monarch, the dreams, labours and loves of his characters come vividly to life. The Pillars of the Earth is, without doubt, a masterpiece - and has proved to be one of the most popular books of our time.

'This mammoth tale seems to touch all human emotion - love and hate, loyalty and treachery, hope and despair. This is truly a novel to get lost in' Cosmopolitan

'A highly enjoyable tale . . . this book evokes its period brilliantly' Sunday Times

Review:

"A novel of majesty and power." -- Chicago Sun-Times

Book Description Book Condition: New. Publisher/Verlag: Signet, London | "The Pillars of the Earth" tells the story of Philip, prior of Kingsbridge, a devout and resourceful monk driven to build the greatest Gothic cathedral the world has known; of Tom, the mason who becomes his architect - a man divided in his soul; of the beautiful, elusive Lady Aliena, haunted by a secret shame; and of a struggle between good and evil that will turn church against state, and brother against brother. A spellbinding epic tale of ambition, anarchy, and absolute power set against the sprawling medieval canvas of twelfth-century England, this is Ken Follett's historical masterpiece. | Im mittelalterlichen England spielt dieser historische Roman. Erzählt wird die Geschichte von Tom Builder, einem Steinmetz, der davon träumt, eine Kathedrale zu bauen. Es herrschen jedoch Krieg und bittere Armut im Land.
