World Without End takes place in the same town of Kingsbridge,

two centuries after the townspeople finished building the exquisite Gothic cathedral that was at the heart of The Pillars of the Earth.

The cathedral and the priory are again at the centre of a web of love and hate, greed and pride, ambition and revenge, but this sequel stands on its own.

This time the men and women of an extraordinary cast of characters find themselves at a crossroad of new ideas-about medicine, commerce, architecture, and justice.

In a world where proponents of the old ways fiercely battle those with progressive minds,

the intrigue and tension quickly reach a boiling point against the devastating backdrop of the greatest natural disaster ever to strike the human race-the Black Death.

  1. world without end by ken follet is the sequel to pillars of the earth. ken follet has been clever with his writing here and connects the characters of the two books together even though they are set a century apart. it is once again about building churches but this time it is also a romance. its a long but good read
