Publisher Marketing: Vuelve el mejor Follett con la emocionante quinta entrega de la saga «Los pilares de la Tierra .

El choque de progreso y tradición y una guerra que amenaza con engullir toda

Europa en la más ambiciosa y épica novela del maestro de la ficción histórica.


La revolución está en el aire
1792. Un gobierno tiránico está decidido a convertir Inglaterra en un poderoso imperio comercial. Mientras, Napoleón Bonaparte comienza su ambicioso ascenso al poder y, en medio de un gran descontento social, los vecinos de Francia se mantienen en máxima alerta.

Kingsbridge se asoma al abismo
Las innovaciones industriales se imponen de manera implacable, sacudiendo las vidas de los trabajadores de las prósperas fábricas textiles de Kingsbridge. Se abre un mundo de nuevas y liberadoras oportunidades ligado, sin embargo, a la crueldad más despiadada. La rápida modernización con sus flamantes pero peligrosas maquinarias están dejando obsoletos muchos trabajos y desgarrando a las familias.

Una nueva tiranía surge en el horizonte
Y a medida que el estallido de un conflicto internacional parece cada vez más cerca, la historia de un pequeño grupo de personas de Kingsbridge --incluidos la hilandera Sal Clitheroe, el tejedor David Shoveller y Kit, el ingenioso y decidido hijo de Sal-- se convertirá en el símbolo de la lucha de toda una generación que desea progresar y pelea por un futuro sin opresión...

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

The long-awaited sequel to A Column of Fire, The Armor of Light heralds a new dawn for Kingsbridge, England, where progress clashes with tradition, class struggles push into every part of society, and war in Europe engulfs the entire continent and beyond.

The Spinning Jenny was invented in 1770, and with that, a new era of manufacturing and industry changed lives everywhere within a generation. A world filled with unrest wrestles for control over this new world order: A mother's husband is killed in a work accident due to negligence; a young woman fights to fund her school for impoverished children; a well-intentioned young man unexpectedly inherits a failing business; one man ruthlessly protects his wealth no matter the cost, all the while war cries are heard from France, as Napoleon sets forth a violent master plan to become emperor of the world. As institutions are challenged and toppled in unprecedented fashion, ripples of change ricochet through our characters' lives as they are left to reckon with the future and a world they must rebuild from the ashes of war.

Over thirty years ago, Ken Follett published his most popular novel, The Pillars of the Earth. Now, with this electrifying addition to the Kingsbridge series, we are plunged into the battlefield between compassion and greed, love and hate, progress and tradition. It is through each character that we are given a new perspective to the seismic shifts that shook the world in nineteenth-century Europe.
