The international bestseller—which has already sold nearly two million copies worldwide—comes to America!

Cathedral of the Sea follows the fortunes of the Estanyol family, from their peasant roots to a son, Arnau, who flees the land only to realize spectacular wealth and devastating problems. During Arnau’s lifetime Barcelona becomes a city of light and darkness, dominated by the construction of the city’s great pride—the cathedral of Santa Maria del Mar—and by its shame, the deadly Inquisition. As a young man, Arnau joins the powerful guild of stone workers and helps to build the church with his own hands, while his best friend and adopted brother Joan studies to become a priest. When Arnau, who secretly loves a forbidden Jewish woman named Mar, is betrayed and hauled before the Inquisitor, he finds himself face-to-face with his own brother. Will he lose his life just as his beloved Cathedral of the Sea is finally completed?

    " Devoid of subtext and lacking anything that would allow it to stand out among the historical books I read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Sarah Jane | 12/13/2013

    " Interesting for history but storyline more than a little implausible. Also, main character is boring, which is a fictional crime. "

    " Nog net twee sterren, omdat het verhaal op zich wel meeviel. De manier waarop Falcones het ons brengt is heel wat minder leuk (ofwel ligt het aan de vertaling). Hij weet je nooit helemaal mee te sleuren in het verhaal. "
