Nominated as one of America's best-loved novels by PBS's The Great American Read #1 New York Times Bestseller Oprah's Book Club Selection From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of A Column of Fire , the "monumental masterpiece" ( Booklist ) that changed the course of Ken Follett's already phenomenal career. "Follett is a master," extolled the Washington Post 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 stands as a testament to Follett's unassailable command of the written word and to his universal appeal. 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.
