The Pillars Of The Earth – Ken Follett

Pillars-of-the-EarthFollett is one of the best epic writers ever!  (His Century Trilogy is also fantastic.)  This story is set in Medieval England, during the 1100’s, and centers around the building of Kingsbridge Cathedral.  There are many characters, some well-known historically like King Stephen, and others like Tom Builder, an everyman character who actually works on construction of the cathedral itself.  All of the characters and their lives intersect for a truly magnificent saga.
