Product Description

Gripping . . . powerfulA consistently compelling portrait of a world in crisisThis book is truly epic . . . The reader will probably wish there was a thousand more pages.From master storyteller Ken Follett, Winter of the World is a story about five linked families as they live out their destinies while the world is shaken by tyranny and war in the mid-twentieth century.

Winter of the World is the second novel in Ken Follett's uniquely ambitious Century trilogy. On its own or read in sequence with Fall of Giants and Edge of Eternity, this is a spellbinding epic of global conflict and personal drama.

A Battle of Ideals

It is 1933 and, at Cambridge, Lloyd Williams is drawn to irresistible socialite Daisy Peshkov, who represents everything that his left-wing family despise. But Daisy is more interested in aristocratic Boy Fitzherbert, a leader in the British Union of Fascists.

An Evil Uprising
Berlin is in turmoil. Eleven-year-old Carla von Ulrich struggles to understand the tensions disrupting her family as Hitler strengthens his grip on Germany. Many are resolved to oppose Hitler’s brutal regime – but are they willing to betray their country?

A Global Conflict on a Scale Never Seen Before
Shaken by the tyranny and the prospect of war, the lives of five families become ever more enmeshed. As an international clash of military power and personal beliefs sweeps the world, what will this new war mean for those who must live through it?

Ken Follett was born in Cardiff, Wales. Barred from watching films and television by his parents, he developed an early interest in reading thanks to a local library. After studying philosophy at University College London, he became involved in centre-left politics, entering into journalism soon after. His first thriller, the wartime spy drama Eye of the Needle, became an international bestseller and has sold over 10 million copies. He then astonished everyone with his first historical novel, The Pillars of the Earth, the story of the building of a medieval cathedral, which went on to become one of the most beloved books of the twentieth century. One of the most popular authors in the world, his many books, including the Kingsbridge series and the Century trilogy, have sold more than 178 million copies. A father and husband, Ken lives with his wife in England and enjoys travelling the world when he can.Ken Follett's number one bestselling Century trilogy of novels follows the fate of five intertwined families from across the globe - American, German, Russian, English and Welsh - throughout the twentieth century. The historical trilogy begins with Fall of Giants, which encompasses the Russian revolution, the suffragette movement and the First World War, with richly portrayed characters. The second novel, Winter of the World, continues the journey through the Spanish Civil War, the rise of the Nazis and the ensuing tragedy of the Second World War. The story concludes in Edge of Eternity where the Cold War and the Cuban Missile Crisis bring the world to the brink of oblivion - sweeping from the 1960s to the 1980s, the families experience the enormous social, political and economic turmoil of the era through the Civil Rights movement, the construction of the Berlin Wall and the Vietnam War. Ken Follett is also the author of the phenomenally popular Kingsbridge novels, including The Pillars of the Earth and World Without End.
