Reseña del editor:

Set in 12th-century England, Ken Follett's The Pillars of the Earth chronicles the building of the greatest Gothic cathedral the world has knownand the struggle between good and evil that will turn church against state, brother against brother.

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.

Nota de la solapa:

Selected by BBC viewers as one of Britain's best-loved books in the UK's biggest ever celebration of reading, the Big Read
Set in the turbulent times of twelfth-century England when civil war, famine, religious strife and battles over royal succession tore lives and families apart, The Pillars of the Earth tells tells the story of the bulding of a magnificent cathedral.
Against this richly imagined backdrop, filled with intrigue and treachery, Ken Follett draws the reader irresistibly into a wonderful epic of family drama, violent conflict and unswerving ambition. From humble stonemason to imperious monarch, the dreams, labours and loves of his characters come vividly to life. The Pillars of the Earth is, without doubt, a masterpiece - and has proved to be one of the most popular book of our time.

'A highly enjoyable tale...this book evokes its period brilliantly' Sunday Times
'A tale of human courage and perseverance' Evening Times
'A historical saga of such breadth and density...Follett succeeds brilliantly in combining hugeness and detail to create a novel imbued with the rawness, violence and blind faith of the era' Sunday Express
