Lou Clark knows lots of things. She knows how many footsteps there are between the bus stop and home. She knows she likes working in The Buttered Bun tea shop and she knows she might not love her boyfriend Patrick. What Lou doesn't know is she's about to lose her job or that knowing what's coming is what keeps her sane. Will Traynor knows his motorcycle accident took away his desire to live. He knows everything feels very small and rather joyless now and he knows exactly how he's going to put a stop to that. What Will doesn't know is that Lou is about to burst into his world in a riot of color. And neither of them knows they're going to change each other for all time. Written by nattattck-11
A figura que melhor expressa os ideais que inspiraram Ken Follett a escrever este livro é Philip, prior de Kingsbridge, um homem que luta contra tudo e todos para construir um templo grandioso a Deus. Mas a galeria de personagens que gravitam em torno da catedral inclui Aliena, a bela herdeira banida de suas terras, Jack, seu amante, Tom, o construtor, William o cavaleiro boçal, e Waleran, o bispo capaz de tudo para pavimentar seu caminho até o lugar do Papa, em Roma. Como painel de fundo, uma Inglaterra sacudida por lutas entre os sucessores prováveis ao trono que Henrique I deixou sem descendentes.
