Teaser: The Pillars of the Earth by Ken Follett

Teaser Tuesdays: A fun weekly meme Hosted by MizB @ Should Be Reading where readers share the teaser sentences from their current reads. This week's teaser is from Ken Follett's The Pillars of the Earth. I'm currently on page 739.

The Pillars of the Earth: Against the richly imagine backdrop of 12th century England, filled with intrigue and treachery, Follett draws the reader irresistibly into a wonderful epic of family drama, violent conflict and unswerving ambition. From humble stonemason to imperious monarch, the dreams, labours and loves of his characters come vividly to life.

Aliena shook her head. 'I couldn't bear to be parted from him. I love him too much.' 'If you love him,' Ellen said, 'go and find his father.' - The Pillars of the Earth pg. 738
