Produktbeschreibung
Five families. Three decades. One extraordinary era. Edge of Eternity is the epic final volume in the Century trilogy.

As the decisions made in the corridors of power bring the world to the brink of oblivion, five families from across the globe are brought together in an unforgettable tale of passion and conflict during the Cold War.

When Rebecca Hoffmann, a teacher in East Germany, finds herself pursued by the secret police, she discovers that she has been living a lie. Her younger brother, Walli, longs to escape across the Berlin Wall to Britain to become part of the burgeoning music scene.

In the United States, George Jakes, a bright young lawyer in the Kennedy administration, is a fierce supporter of the Civil Rights movement - as is the woman he is in love with, Verena, who works for Martin Luther King, Jr. Boarding a Greyhound bus in Washington to protest against segregation, they begin a fateful journey together.

Russian activist, Tania Dvorkin, narrowly evades capture for producing an illegal news sheet. Her actions are made all the more perilous as her brother, Dimka, is a rising star in the heart of the Communist Party in the Kremlin.

From the deep south of America to the vast expanses of Siberia, from the shores of Cuba to the swinging streets of Sixties' London, Ken Follett's Edge of Eternity is a sweeping tale of the fight for individual freedom in a world gripped by the mightiest clash of superpowers anyone has ever known.

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.
