The thrilling and addictive prequel to The Pillars of the Earth-set in England at the dawn of a new era: the Middle Ages

"Just as transporting as [The Pillars of the Earth]…A most welcome addition to the Kingsbridge series."-The Washington Post

It is 997 CE, the end of the Dark Ages. England is facing attacks from the Welsh in the west and the Vikings in the east. Those in power bend justice according to their will, regardless of ordinary people and often in conflict with the king. Without a clear rule of law, chaos reigns.

In these turbulent times, three characters find their lives intertwined. A young boatbuilder's life is turned upside down when his home is raided by Vikings, forcing him and his family to move and start their lives anew in a small hamlet where he does not fit in…. A Norman noblewoman marries for love, following her husband across the sea to a new land, but the customs of her husband's homeland are shockingly different, and it soon becomes clear to her that a single misstep could be catastrophic…. A monk dreams of transforming his humble abbey into a center of learning that will be admired throughout Europe. And each in turn comes into dangerous conflict with a clever and ruthless bishop who will do anything to increase his wealth and power.

Thirty years ago, Ken Follett published his most popular novel, The Pillars of the Earth. Now, Follett's masterful new prequel The Evening and the Morning takes us on an epic journey into a historical past rich with ambition and rivalry, death and birth, love and hate, that will end where The Pillars of the Earth begins.

Zusammenfassung
#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER: We shipped out 332,000 copies of the hardcover, catapulting it to the #1 spot on the NYT bestseller listits first week. The entire Kingsbridge series has sold 40 million copies worldwide, and each of the other books in the series continues to sell 10,000+ copies per year in paperback for us.

RAVE REVIEWS: The Evening and the Morning got a 4.5-star rating on Amazon, with more than 3,300 consumer reviews, and racked up praise from The Washington Post, Kirkus, AARP, and Library Journal, who called it "exciting," "absorbing," and "a feast for Follett's fans."

FRESH LOOK AT AN EXCITING TIME IN HISTORY: The Evening and the Morning takes place as England is beginning to emerge as a country-as the Dark Ages end and the Middle Ages begin. England has just been united under one ruler, it is under constant attack from the Vikings, and there is no rule of law. Power belongs to those who seize it. It is a brutal, bloody, merciless era of history that Follett brings vividly to life.

ADDICTIVE, PAGE-TURNING NARRATIVE: Follett has delivered yet another masterpiece full of great characters, rich and complex plots, new settings, and meticulously-researched historical details. Readers will not be able to put down this blockbuster novel.

IDEAL PUBLICATION TIMING: Our June publication date is perfectly timed for summer reading, and to help build anticipation for his new thriller in the fall.
