Winter of the World by Ken Follett picks up right where the first book left off, as its five interrelated families—American, German, Russian, English, Welsh—enter a time of enormous social, political, and economic turmoil, beginning with the rise of the Third Reich, through the Spanish Civil War and the great dramas of World War II, up to the explosions of the American and Soviet atomic bombs.
Winter Of The World: Book Two of the Century Trilogy by Ken Follett Summer 2013 reading list!
Librarian Emily is reading WINTER OF THE WORLD by Ken Follett, the second in the Century Trilogy. She thinks it's worth a read for those who enjoy historical fiction. Follett's take on major events from the 1930-50s encompasses a lot of characters and plot lines, but he doesn't get these too tangled to follow. She recommends starting with the first book (Fall of Giants) since this one follows the same families.
Follows the experiences of a woman, who after being born on a snowy night in 1910, repeatedly dies and reincarnates into the same life to correct missteps and ultimately save the world.
