From the Inside Flap:

A spell-binding drama of love, war, treason, plague, famine, witchcraft, anti-Semitism and the Inquisition.

In fourteenth-century Spain, the medieval city of Barcelona is enjoying a golden age of prosperity. Its humblest inhabitants are building, stone by stone, a magnificent church to overlook their harbour: the Cathedral of the Sea. A church to be built for the people by the people.

In its shadow, Arnau, a young serf on the run from his feudal lord, struggles to earn his freedom. After famine, plague and thwarted love, Arnauís fortunes begin to turn when King Pedro makes him a baron as a reward for his courage in battle. But he is also forced to marry Eleanor, a ward of the King whom he does not love. His new-found wealth excites the jealousy of his friends, who begin to plot against him with devastating consequences.

Arnauís journey from slave to nobleman is the story of a struggle between good and evil that will turn Church against State and brother against brother . . .

With this page-turning epic, Ildefonso Falcones has created a stunning historical masterpiece.
