About this deal

The Church is heavily political, owning land, collecting rents and demanding its own version of fealty. After Wynstan escapes punishment, Aldred is sent away from Shiring to run the minster at Dreng's Ferry. However, once the shock lost a bit of its spontaneous strength, he felt an extreme urge to tell Sunni. However, some of the local clergy have other ideas and try to destroy Aldred’s ideas and the monastery he hopes to build.

With the Kings grasp on the country fragile and with no clear rule of law, chaos and bloodshed reigns. And while there is definitely a limit to how far Follet could go on existing scholarship before taking up some creative liberties, nevertheless at times it definitely felt like I had taken a time machine to early medieval England.While the world is slowly developing, there is much going on and societies are emerging with their own unique perspectives.

Over 170 million copies of the 36 books he has written have been sold in over 80 countries and in 33 languages. Edgar is a young boatbuilder who is forced to rebuild his whole life after Vikings murder his father and destroy his family home. Dreng throws the baby into the river despite the protests of Blod, Edgar, and both Dreng's own wives.

However Ken Follett really knows how to tell a story, wonderful sense of time and place and characters that are likeable and despicable but always memorable. Hopefully you newcomers found yourself as captivated as I was - because when you eventually finish, you’ll still have the rest of Kingsbridge series ahead of you (which, as one may expect, I am now quite excited to move on to). We are experiencing delays with deliveries to many countries, but in most cases local services have now resumed. But he believes it’s wrong to be gay, so he turns all his energies into his great project, which is to build a centre of learning and scholarship in his abbey.
