The Evening and the Morning by Ken Follett


Despite this being a chunky read I enjoyed it so much that I ordered up the book it was a prequel to – The Pillars of the Earth – but the library copy had such small print I gave up.


So this is historical fiction at its best.  To read more about it see Marianne's post - 


  1. I've read Ken Follett books in years past .....and maybe I need to catch up on his books....

  2. Thank you so much for this, Carole. I believe there cannot be enough advertisement for this wonderful series. Sorry that The Pillars of the Earth was such a bad print. You should definitely try again with another copy, maybe you can get a used one somewhere?
    In any case, I have read all four books of the series:

    "The Evening and the Morning" (Kingsbridge #0.5) - 2020
    "The Pillars of the Earth" (Kingsbridge #1) - 1989
    "World Without End" (Kingsbridge #2) - 2007
    "A Column of Fire" (Kingsbridge #3) - 2017
    and am looking forward to #5: The Armour of Light which will be published in September 2023.
