This novel picks up right where the first book left off, as its five interrelated families, American, German, Russian, English, Welsh, enter a time of enormous social, political, and economic turmoil, beginning with the rise of the Third Reich, through the Spanish Civil War and the great dramas of World War II, up to the explosions of the American and Soviet atomic bombs. Carla von Ulrich, born of German and English parents, finds her life engulfed by the Nazi tide until she commits a deed of great courage and heartbreak. American brothers Woody and Chuck Dewar, each with a secret, take separate paths to momentous events, one in Washington, the other in the bloody jungles of the Pacific. English student Lloyd Williams discovers in the crucible of the Spanish Civil War that he must fight Communism just as hard as Fascism. Daisy Peshkov, a driven American social climber, cares only for popularity and the fast set, until the war transforms her life, not just once but twice, while her cousin Volodya carves out a position in Soviet intelligence that will affect not only this war, but the war to come. These characters and many others find their lives inextricably entangled as their experiences illuminate the cataclysms that marked the century. From the drawing rooms of the rich to the blood and smoke of battle, their lives intertwine, propelling the reader into dramas of ever increasing complexity

World without end by Ken Follett( Sound Recording )
20 editions published between 2007 and 2015 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,544 libraries worldwide
Ken Follett has 90 million readers worldwide. THE PILLARS OF THE EARTH is his bestselling book of all time. Now, eighteen years after the publication of The PILLARS OF THE EARTH, Ken Follett has written the most-anticipated sequel of the year?WORLD WITHOUT END. In 1989 Ken Follett astonished the literary world with THE PILLARS OF THE EARTH, a sweeping epic novel set in twelfth-century England centered on the building of a cathedral and many of the hundreds of lives it affected. Critics were overwhelmed?"it will hold you, fascinate you, surround you" ( CHICAGO TRIBUNE )?and readers everywhere hoped for a sequel. WORLD WITHOUT END takes place in the same town of Kingsbridge, two centuries after the townspeople finished building the exquisite Gothic cathedral that was at the heart of THE PILLARS OF THE EARTH. The cathedral and the priory are again at the center of a web of love and hate, greed and pride, ambition and revenge, but this sequel stands on its own. This time the men and women of an extraordinary cast of characters find themselves at a crossroad of new ideas? about medicine, commerce, architecture, and justice. In a world where proponents of the old ways fiercely battle those with progressive minds, the intrigue and tension quickly reach a boiling point against the devastating backdrop of the greatest natural disaster ever to strike the human race?the Black Death. Three years in the writing, and nearly eighteen years since its predecessor, WORLD WITHOUT END breathes new life into the epic historical novel and once again shows that Ken Follett is a masterful author writing at the top of his craft
