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.

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 historical masterpiece.

    " This book is a wade, but a wonderful wade if you enjoy English History. Revolving around the building of a cathedral, it vividly portrays what life was like in the days of King Stephen. I must warn the potential reader, there is much brutality here, but it is counterbalanced by people for whom love is a vocation. It is a world very different from out own, where success has a very different meaning, but family, is still family. Within this book, I have met people whom I shall never forget. That is the true sign of great writing. "
