A Column of FIre

Kingsbridge. I spent about ten glorious days reading the nine hundred pages of Ken Follett’s novel titled, A Column of Fire. Set mostly in the fictional town of Kingsbridge, the cathedral town that Follett built and developed in earlier novels, the action in the new novel takes place in Elizabethan times, and focuses on the turbulence of that period especially with religious persecution. The novel takes readers into the violence and turmoil of that time through the ups and downs in the life of protagonist Ned Willard and a wide cast of interesting characters, some fictional and others real. Follett shifts the action often to the continent or the high seas, covering all the main issues and conflicts of the 16th century, keeping readers anxious to find out what happens next. Rating: Five-star (I love it) Click here to purchase A Column of Fire from amazon.com.
