About this deal

Ealdorman Wilwulf (also referred to as Wilf): The older half-brother of Wynstan and Wigelm, ealdorman of Shiring. The growth and transformation of a crude, small village to the thriving town of Knightsbridge, England, the setting of Pillars of Earth, is described through the hard work, tribulations, joys, and sorrows of three main characters. Still, I think maybe male authors should stop writing virginity-losing scenes from a woman's perspective.

Another wrinkle is that the story runs through a time when the primary adversary of the English wasn’t the French, but the Vikings. Ragna: Daughter of Count Hubert of Cherbourg, travels to England to marry Ealdorman Wilwulf of Shiring.Aldred brings him to the leper colony near Kingsbridge, where the nuns care for him alongside other sick and mentally ill people. While she assumes that she will be able to rule alongside her husband, nothing could be further from the truth. While many find Ken Follett novels difficult to digest, it is usually because of an excessive amount of detail, rather than a lack thereof.

It is a prequel to The Pillars of the Earth set starting in 997 AD, and covering a period in the late Early Middle Ages and under the backdrop of Viking raids, through the year 1007. Tokią knygą - galiūnę perskaičiau per per vos kelias dienas: kiekvieną laisvą minutę jai aukojau, nes tiesiog sunku atsiplėšt buvo. While I seem to have stuck to some of Follett’s heartier work (read: trilogies), I have never been disappointed.Shortly after I started, one of the first things that caught my attention was the extent to which everything was described, even in conversations between characters. I really enjoyed the first half of the story, but the things that I found tiresome really ended up spoiling the second half. King Ethelred, shown many years into his reign, does not have the level of control over England that later kings would have.
