The Pillars Of The Earth

The Pillars Of The Earth is a 1989 historical fiction concerning events around the construction of a cathedral in medieval England. The events of The Pillars Of The Earth take place in the mid-12th-Century. The book was an immense success and led to further sequels, namely 2007's World Without End and 2017's A Column Of Fire.

Answer and Explanation:

The Pillars Of The Earth is written by bestselling author Ken Follett. Although he achieved fame with his masterful thrillers and action novels including his first big hit the 1978 war thriller The Eye Of The Needle, Follet's turn to historical fiction with 1989's The Pillars Of The Earth was enormously successful.
