Bart | 2 comments Hello,

Ken Follett's Pillars of the Earth is my favourite book ever.

Can someone give me recommendations for epic HF books like this one?

Thank you very much!!


``Laurie (laurielynette) Hello Bart, would you be interested in the Medieval era mainly?The Heirs of the Kingdom is set during the Crusades.


Bart | 2 comments Thank you, I will have a look into them.
And sorry for forgetting to mention, but it does not have to be Medieval :)

Shannon | 32 comments The only other sweeping saga type books like that which come to mind are the Outlander books by Diana Gabaldon. If those aren't what you're looking for, you might try James A. Michener. His books aren't exactly like the Pillars books but you might like them all the same. Good luck!

P.S. Maybe In the Land of the Long White Cloud??? A favorite of mine.
