- Ken Follett has said: "When I started to look at cathedrals, I wondered: Who built them, and why? The book is my answer to that question." Why do you think the great medieval cathedrals were built?
Some things to think about:
How does the building of the cathedral satisfy the ambitions of the main characters – Tom Builder, Prior Philip, Aliena, and Jack? How does it affect the lives of other important characters in the story?
“A novel of majesty and power.”—Chicago Sun-Times
