Produktbeschreibung
From the bestselling author Ken Follett, The Evening and the Morning is a historical epic that will end where The Pillars of the Earth begins.

A TIME OF CONFLICT
It is 997 CE, the end of the Dark Ages, and England faces attacks from the Welsh in the west and the Vikings in the east. Life is hard, and those with power wield it harshly, bending justice according to their will - often in conflict with the king. With his grip on the country fragile and with no clear rule of law, chaos and bloodshed reign.

THREE LIVES INTERTWINED
Into this uncertain world three people come to the fore: a young boatbuilder, who dreams of a better future when a devastating Viking raid shatters the life that he and the woman he loves hoped for; a Norman noblewoman, who follows her beloved husband across the sea to a new land only to find her life there shockingly different; and a capable monk at Shiring Abbey, who dreams of transforming his humble abbey into a centre of learning admired throughout Europe.

THE DAWN OF A NEW AGE
Now, with England at the dawn of the Middle Ages, these three people will each come into dangerous conflict with a ruthless bishop, who will do anything to increase his wealth and power, in an epic tale of ambition and rivalry, death and birth, and love and hate.

Thirty years ago we were introduced to Kingsbridge in The Pillars of the Earth, and now in this masterful prequel international bestseller Ken Follett will take us on a journey into a rich past, which will end where his masterpiece begins.

Autorenporträt
Ken Follett, geboren 1949 in Cardiff, Wales, gehört zu den erfolgreichsten Autoren der Welt. Mit seinen Romanen "Die Säulen der Erde" und der Fortsetzung "Die Tore der Welt", die beide auch erfolgreich verfilmt wurden, führte er das Genre des Historischen Romans zu neuer Beliebtheit. Nach einigen Thrillern hat er mit "Sturz der Titanen", "Winter der Welt" und "Kinder der Freiheit" eine groß angelegte Chronik des 20. Jahrhunderts vorgelegt, in der er die Geschichte von fünf miteinander verbundenen Familien aus Amerika, Deutschland, Russland, England und Wales erzählt. Im September 2017 erschien sein lang erwarteter historischer Roman "Das Fundament der Ewigkeit", eine Fortführung seiner weltbekannten Kingsbridge-Romane. Sein neuer Roman führt uns in die Zeit der Angelsachsen zurück.
Rezensionen
[A] richly told, complex story . . . Follett is a powerful storyteller . . . [whose] fans will enjoy this jaunt through the days before England was merry.
Kirkus (starred)

Follett has done it again. Readers will gobble up this exciting prequel.
Library Journal

[An] absorbing and lengthy saga of life in a chaotic and unstable England on the cusp of the Middle Ages . . . Fans of Follett's ever-popular Kingsbridge series . . . will flock to this . . . while intrigued newcomers can start here.
Booklist

Follett vividly re-creates the ancient era . . . in this feast for his fans.
AARP

Praise for Ken Follett and the Kingsbridge series

The Kingsbridge books . . . are swift, accessible and written in a clear, uncluttered prose that has a distinctly contemporary feel. . . . Follett presents his worlds in granular detail, but the narratives never stand still. Something dramatic, appalling or enraging happens in virtually every chapter. . . . The result is a massive entertainment that illuminates an obscure corner of British history with intelligence and great narrative energy.
The Washington Post

Follett takes you to a time long past with brio and razor-sharp storytelling. An epic tale in which you will lose yourself.
The Denver Post

[Follett is a] master of the sweeping, readable epic.
The Philadelphia Inquirer

Follett is a master.
