Description

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 classic historical masterpiece.

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.

The Pillars of the Earth is the first in The Kingsbridge Novels series, followed by World Without End and A Column of Fire.

    I love history and reading - therefore being transported back in time with a story of characters and realistic histories is just fab. Keep with the book as he characters come to life and transport you to a time we can only imagine and be thankful of.

    I couldn't recommend this book higher.. It's depth and enormous scale makes for such a captivating story which is something I never thought I would say about the concept of building a cathedral! This book truly opened my eyes to a new genre of literature and I cannot wait to read the sequel!
