The bestselling sequel to Pillars of the Earth
On the day after Halloween, in the year 1327, four children slip away from the cathedral city of Kingsbridge. They are a thief, a bully, a boy genius and a girl who wants to be a doctor. In the forest they see two men killed.
As adults, their lives will be braided together by ambition, love, greed and revenge. They will see prosperity and famine, plague and war. One boy will travel the world but come home in the end; the other will be a powerful, corrupt nobleman. One girl will defy the might of the medieval church; the other will pursue an impossible love. And always they will live under the long shadow of the unexplained killing they witnessed on that fateful childhood day.
Ken Follett's masterful epic The Pillars of the Earth enchanted millions of readers with its compelling drama of war, passion and family conflict set around the building of a cathedral. Now World Without End takes readers back to medieval Kingsbridge two centuries later, as the men, women and children of the city once again grapple with the devastating sweep of historical change.

World without end
Great book... As good as pillars of the earth... Thanks simone
A poor sequel to the pillars of the earth.
Winter World Review
It is twenty years since I read the previous novel of building a Cathedral in Britain.
It's book follows on remarkably, detailing daily life in Britain and even including the Plague. The historical accuracy is another feature of Ken Follett's writing.
A wonderful read. It has taken me all week to devour the the story.
Can't wait for the next novel.
