Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Follett risks all and comes out a clear winner, extolled Publishers Weekly on the release of The Pillars of the Earth, A departure for the bestselling thriller writer, the historical epic stunned readers and critics alike with its ambitious scope and gripping humanity. Today, it is a beloved favorite of countless readers, standing as a testament to Follett's unassailable command of the written word and to his universal appeal. A spellbinding epic set in twelfth-century England, 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.

Synopsis:

This historical epic is set in 12th-century England and tells the story of Philip, a devout and resourceful monk driven to build the greatest Gothic cathedral the world has known, and those who become intimately involved in the herculean effort.
