The Pillars Of The Earth is set against a backdrop of war, religious strife and power struggles which tears lives and families apart. In that time, there rises a magnificent Cathedral in Kingsbridge. Against the backdrop, love-stories entwine: Tom, the master builder, Aliena, the noblewoman, the sadistic Lord William, Philip, the prior of Kingsbridge, Jack, the artist in stone work and Ellen, the woman from the forest who casts a curse. At once, this is a sensuous and enduring love story and an epic that shines with the fierce spirit of a passionate age. Follett masterfully weaves these stories through political turmoil of 12th century England, creating a relevant and viable world for today's audience and for generations to come.

excellent series

this was fantastic and worth the £23 original price but £13.95 is mint

Great series, mine is the second review on amazon

The dvd isn't a bad effort, but the story line deviates badly from the book in places. The book itself is a fantastic read, and I can also recommend Follett's follow up to Pillars....'World Without End'.
