International bestselling author Ken Follett enthralled millions of readers with the first two books of his Kingsbridge series, The Pillars of the Earth and World Without End. Now, the epic saga continues with his latest historic masterpiece, A Column of Fire, set in a city torn apart by religious conflict during the reign of Queen Elizabeth I. As power in England shifts precariously between Catholics and Protestants, high principles clash with friendship, loyalty, and love.
Ned Willard wants nothing more than to marry Margery Fitzgerald, but when the lovers find themselves on opposing sides of the religious divide sweeping across the country, Ned goes to work for Princess Elizabeth. When she becomes queen, all Europe turns against England. The shrewd, determined young monarch sets up the country’s first secret service, to give her early warning of assassination plots, rebellions, and invasion plans. Over a turbulent half century, the love between Ned and Margery seems doomed, as extremism sparks violence from Edinburgh to Geneva. Elizabeth clings precariously to her throne and her principles, protected by a small, dedicated group of resourceful spies and courageous secret agents. Set during one of the most tumultuous and revolutionary times in history, A Column of Fire is one of Follett’s most exciting and ambitious works yet.
Follett is one of the world’s most successful authors, with more than 160 million copies of his 30 books sold in over 80 countries and in 33 languages.
