The Pillars of the Earth.
A Column of Fire is set in 1558, and the Catholics and the Protestants are at each other’s throats. Despite this, the ills of England have little to do with religion. The true battle is between those who advocate for tolerance and compromise, and those who want to force their agenda no matter the dire consequences.

Winter’s Tale returns with
Paris in the Present Tense, about a seventy-four-year-old widower and cellist whose grandson requires expensive treatment for leukemia. To help him, Jules Lacour must rely on his musical gifts, but this endeavor stirs memories of a tragic, life-shaping incident from his past.
