World without End

Author:

Availability: Out Of Stock

Like The Pillars of the Earth, which was a historical novel, World Without End also encompasses two of the worlds greatest real-life events, the Black Death, which killed between 30 and 60 per cent of the total population of Europe, and the commencement of the Hundred Years’ War. Located in Knightsbridge, the same place where The Pillars of the Earth had been set, the narrative jumps forward by a century and a half. According to Follett, what has changed in Knightsbridge in the interim period is that, the monastery changed to an institution hungry for power, from the beneficial influence that it stood for in medieval society. The tale of secrets, lies, love, power and hatred continues with the Church and the Priory at its center. World Without End can be read as a story independent of The Pillars. The protagonists are Gwenda, Caris, Merthin and his brother Ralph. The latter two, though siblings, are polar opposites in character. Merthin is an apprentice carpenter, in love with Caris who renounces her nunhood to marry him. Ralph is totally ruthless and desperate to be an Earl, committing rape and murder in his efforts towards redeeming his family’s name. The World Without End has been adapted for the television by director Michael C. Jones for broadcasting in 2013 in the UK.
