Ken Follett’s Century Trilogy follows the fortunes of five intertwined families—American, German, Russian, English, and Welsh—as they make their way through the twentieth century. It has been called “potent, engrossing” ( Publishers Weekly) and “truly epic” ( Huffington Post). USA Today said, “You actually feel like you’re there.”

Edge of  Eternity, the finale, covers one of the most tumultuous eras of all: the 1960s through the 1980s, encompassing civil rights, assassinations, Vietnam, the Berlin Wall, the Cuban Missile Crisis, presidential impeachment, revolution—and rock and roll.
 
East German teacher Rebecca Hoffman discovers she’s been spied on by the Stasi for years and commits an impulsive act that will affect her family for generations… George Jakes, himself bi-racial, bypasses corporate law to join Robert F. Kennedy’s Justice Department and finds himself in the middle of not only the seminal events of the civil rights battle, but also a much more personal battle… Cameron Dewar, the grandson of a senator, jumps at the chance to do some espionage for a cause he believes in, only to discover that the world is much more dangerous than he’d imagined… Dimka Dvorkin, a young aide to Khrushchev, becomes an agent for good and for ill as the Soviet Union and the United States race to the brink of nuclear war, while his twin sister, Tania, carves out a role that will take her from Moscow to Cuba to Prague to Warsaw—and into history.
 
These characters and many others find their lives inextricably entangled as they add their personal stories and insight to the most defining events of the 20th century. From the opulent offices of the most powerful world leaders to the shabby apartments of those trying to begin a new empire, from the elite clubs of the wealthy and highborn to the passionate protests of a country’s most marginalized citizens, this is truly a drama for the ages.
 
With the Century Trilogy, Follett has guided readers through an entire era of history with a master’s touch. His unique ability to tell fascinating, brilliantly researched stories that captivate readers and keep them turning the pages is unparalleled. In this climactic and concluding saga, Follett brings us into a world we thought we knew, but now will never seem the same again.

Product Description:

EDGE OF ETERNITY is the sweeping, passionate conclusion to Ken Follett’s extraordinary historical epic, The Century Trilogy.
 
Throughout these books, Follett has followed the fortunes of five intertwined families – American, German, Russian, English, and Welsh – as they make their way through the twentieth century. Now they come to one of the most tumultuous eras of all: the enormous social, political, and economic turmoil of the 1960s through the 1980s, from civil rights, assassinations, mass political movements and Vietnam to the Berlin Wall, the Cuban Missile Crisis, presidential impeachment, revolution – and rock and roll.
 
East German teacher Rebecca Hoffman discovers she’s been spied on by the Stasi for years and commits an impulsive act that will affect her family for the rest of their lives.…George Jakes, the child of a mixed-race couple, bypasses a corporate law career to join Robert F. Kennedy’s Justice Department, and finds himself in the middle not only of the seminal events of the civil rights battle, but a much more personal battle of his own.…Cameron Dewar, the grandson of a senator,  jumps at the chance to do some official and unofficial espionage for a cause he believes in, only to discover that the world is a much more dangerous place than he’d imagined.…Dimka Dvorkin, a young aide to Nikita Khrushchev, becomes a prime agent both for good and for ill as the United States and the Soviet Union race to the brink of nuclear war, while his twin sister, Tania, carves out a role that will take her from Moscow to Cuba to Prague to Warsaw – and into history.  
 
As always with Follett, the historical background is brilliantly researched and rendered, the action fast-moving, the characters rich in nuance and emotion. With the hand of a master, he brings us into a world we thought we knew but now will never seem the same again.

Book Description Book Condition: New. Publisher/Verlag: Penguin US | Berlin, 1961. Rebecca Hoffmann erfährt durch Zufall, dass ihr Mann bei der STASI arbeitet, und damit bricht ihre ganze Welt zusammen. Ihr Schicksal - und das eines ganzen Volkes - scheint besiegelt, als die Regierung eine Mauer erbauen lässt, die jede Flucht unmöglich machen soll. Doch weder Rebecca, noch ihre Kinder geben auf! Und sie bleiben nicht alleine . Boston, 1961. George Jake und Verena Marquand, zwei junge Schwarze, erfahren am eigenen Leib, was Rassendiskriminierung bedeutet - und wie falsch angebliche Freunde sein können. Wem kann man in einer von Misstrauen und Vorurteilen beherrschten Gesellschaft trauen, wem nicht? Und kann der Baptistenpastor Martin Luther King tatsächlich Hoffnung bringen? Ken Follett spannt mit seiner spannenden Familiensaga gekonnt einen Bogen zwischen den großen Freiheitsbewegungen in den USA, in Russland und vor allem in Deutschland, die schließlich 1989 im FALL DER MAUER gipfeln.

Book Description Dutton, 2014. Book Condition: New. Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: Praise for Winter of the World "What [Follett] knows how to do is put readers' hearts in throats." The New York Times This second installment of Follett's epic Century trilogy is just as potent, engrossing, and prolix as the opening opus, Fall of Giants . Rife with plot lines, interpersonal intrigue, sweeping historical flourishes, and an authentic and compelling cast, this is a tale of dynamic characters struggling to survive during one of the world's darkest periods." Publishers Weekly "Even after all his novels some 20 in all the reader remains amazed Follett can research a book so thoroughly that you actually feel like you're there, even smelling the smells." USA Today "Follett does a masterful job of capturing the highs and lows of an extraordinary bloody time." - The Associated Press Follett never lets the action lag as he adeptly ties together all the sweeping economic, cultural, political, and social transformations of the entire era. Booklist "Follett's storytelling is unobtrusive and workmanlike.he spins a reasonable and readable yarn that embraces dozens of characters and plenty of Big Picture history." Kirkus Reviews "Abandon your normal activities for a couple of days when you crack this one open, because you're likely to get hooked like a Copper River salmon." The Seattle Times This book is truly epic. Follett is a master craftsman. He fills his pages with fascinating characters and then uses the great events of this time to make an exciting plot. He succeeds in every way possible. Huffington Post. Bookseller Inventory # ABE_book_new_0525953094
