I am currently reading Pillars of the Earth and will be taking it with me for holiday reading, though I dare say the only reading will be done on the plane and waiting at airports… World Without End will be waiting for me on my bedside table to walking me home 🙂
This will be my last daily photo for about 7 and a half weeks, since tomorrow we will begin our big adventure; an overseas holiday covering five countries; South Africa, Portugal, England, France and The Netherlands. Upon our return, you will see my weekly photographic blog FULL of our overseas photos. If you are interested, I have also set up a wordpress travel photography blog for while we are away: http://elleverwoerdphotografie.wordpress.com
World Without End:
On the day after Halloween, in the year 1327, four children slip away from the cathedral city of Kingsbridge. They are a thief, a bully, a boy genius and a girl who wants to be a doctor. In the forest, they see two men killed. As adults, their lives will be braided together by ambition, love, greed and revenge. They will see prosperity and famine, plague and war. One boy will travel the world but come home in the end; the other will be a powerful, corrupt nobleman. One girl will defy the might of the medieval church; the other will pursue an impossible love. And always they will live under the long shadow of the unexplained killing they witnessed on that fateful childhood day. Ken Follett’s masterful epic “The Pillars of the Earth” enchanted millions of readers with its compelling drama of war, passion and family conflict set around the building of a cathedral. Now, “World without End” takes readers back to medieval Kingsbridge two centuries later, as the men, women and children of the city once again grapple with the devastating sweep of historical change.
