Book Two of the Century Trilogy
Ken Follett

Follett follows up his Fall of Giants (2010) with this eagerly anticipated second volume of his Century Trilogy. It’s now 1933, and Follett traces the same five interrelated American, English, Welsh, German, and Russian families on the brink of impending war. “Rife with plot lines, interpersonal intrigue, sweeping historical flourishes, and an authentic cast, this is a tale of dynamic characters struggling to survive one of the world’s darkest periods.” (Publishers Weekly).
