A departure for the bestselling thriller writer, this historical epic—a twelfth-century tale of the building of a mighty Gothic cathedral—stunned readers and critics alike with its ambitious scope and gripping humanity




Praise For The Pillars of the Earth

“Enormous and brilliant …a great epic tale…crammed with characters unbelievably alive across the great gulf of centuries…touches all human emotion—love and hate, loyalty and treachery, hope and despair.  See for yourself.  This is truly a novel to get lost in.”—Cosmopolitan
 
“Wonderful…will hold you, fascinate you, surround you.”—Chicago Sun-Times
 
“An extraordinary epic buttressed by suspense…a monumental masterpiece…A towering triumph from a major talent.”—Booklist
 
“A seesaw of tension….A novel that entertains, instructs, and satisfies on a grand scale” —Publishers Weekly
