A Column of Fire (Kingsbridge #3)

In 1558, the ancient stones of Kingsbridge Cathedral look down on a city torn apart by religious conflict. As power in England shifts precariously between Catholics and Protestants, royalty and commoners clash, testing friendship, loyalty, and love.Ned Willard wants nothing more than to marry Margery Fitzgerald. But when the lovers find themselves on opposing sides of the religious conflict dividing the country, Ned goes to work for Princess Elizabeth. When she becomes queen, all Europe turns against England. The shrewd, determined young monarch sets up the countrys first secret service to give her early warning of assassination plots, rebellions, and invasion plans. Over a turbulent half-century, the love between Ned and Margery seems doomed as extremism sparks violence from Edinburgh to Geneva. Elizabeth clings to her throne and her principles, protected by a small, dedicated group of resourceful spies and courageous secret agents.The real enemies, then as now, are not the rival religions. The true battle pitches those who believe in tolerance and compromise against the tyrants who would impose their ideas on everyone elseno matter what the cost....

A Column of Fire (Kingsbridge #3) Reviews

  • Jane

    I was asked to review this by Nudge and was thrilled 28 years ago I read the first book - Pillars of the Earth on holiday and was blown away. 18 years later saw the author then bring out the long awaited World without End and 10 years later I am sitting here with the third instalment. The book although a long time coming is worth the wait. I was given one of a limited edition numbered book proof of 1240.

    This is a spy story with Elizabeth the first reigning in the sixteenth century. As ever Ken F

    Ken Follett is not the best writer. What Ken Follett is, is a good observer of the human condition and a very good historical researcher. If you love history and particularly the 16th Century Western European politics and religious wars, this series, and particularly this book is a very good addition to the usual historical fiction variety. For the fans of the Kingsbridge series, this book comes back to the town with the big Cathedral and some familial descendants to the first Tom Build

    My love affair with Follett goes as far back as 13 years, when I was first enraptured by Eye of the Needle.

    Since then, you've tucked me into bed several nights with your fabulous stories of espionage, romance, historical fiction, and oh so much more.

    This series makes me sigh as It wraps around me much like a caterpillar In a cocoon. It is fabulously rich in character and plot development and leaves me longing for the next big book you write -especially during the 16th century.

    I loved The Pilla

  • Erin

    Yes, I have done this many times:watched a man die knowing that I, more than anyone else, had brought him to his just but dreadful punishment. I did it for my country, which is dear to me; for my sovereign, whom I serve; and for something else, a principle, the belief that a person had the right to make up his own mind about God.

    He was the last of many men I sent to hell, but he made me think of the first...


    Well, my hats off to Mr. Ken Follett on another fantastic historical fiction that I go

    I love his writing.... this one just fell short

  • Liviu

    a long book that moves extremely fast and while fairly predictable and with black and white characters without much subtlety, it is still very gripping and keeps one turning the pages; while technically Kingsbridge 3, the action is on a much larger canvas following the long religious struggle of the second half of the 16th century, mainly in England and France abut also in the Low Countries and even the Americas; a few notable events like the Night of st. Bartholomew in Paris, the long imprisonm ...more

  • Célia

    Mesmo tendo sido escrito há quase 30 anos, Os Pilares da Terra continua a ser, sem grande dúvida, o livro mais lido e adorado do escritor britânico Ken Follett. Dezoito anos depois surgiu Mundo sem Fim, a sequela decorrida dois séculos depois da história original, que recuperou a população de Kingsbridge no século XIV, durante o período da Peste Negra. Agora, Ken Follett decidiu prosseguir com esta série, voltando a Kingsbridge no século XVI, em pleno conflito religioso entre católicos e protest ...more

    Se Isto é Religião?!

    Esta obra recordou-me (e já vão entender porquê) um excerto duma cantiga de Chico Buarque que soa mais ou menos assim:

    "...mesmo quando minhas mãos estão empenhadas em torturar, trucidar, matar...meu coração fecha os olhos e sinceramente, chora!..."

    Será religião queimar em fogueiras, torturar e massacrar?!...

    Aonde é que estão a paz e o amor pelo próximo que a religião apregoa aos 4 ventos?!...

    Foram múltiplas as guerras a que os caciques religiosos se entregaram. Esses anjos ne
