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.

Comments about The Pillars of the Earth:
A friend lent me this hard copy book years ago. I have an ereader but wasn't completely confident that I could put my hands on this book again unless I had my own hard copy. Of course the author is brilliant and has painted a picture that has over a thousand slides to deliver.
