Winter of the World

Century Trilogy Book 2

Picking up where Fall of Giants , the first novel in the extraordinary Century Trilogy, left off, Winter of the World follows its five interrelated families-American, German, Russian, English, and Welsh-through a time of enormous social, political, and economic turmoil, beginning with the rise of the Third Reich, through the great dramas of World War II, and into the beginning of the long Cold War.
Carla von Ulrich, born of German and English parents, finds her life engulfed by the Nazi tide until daring to commit a deed of great courage and heartbreak . . . . American brothers Woody and Chuck Dewar, each with a secret, take separate paths to momentous events, one in Washington, the other in the bloody jungles of the Pacific . . . . English student Lloyd Williams discovers in the crucible of the Spanish Civil War that he must fight Communism just as hard as Fascism . . . . Daisy Peshkov, a driven social climber, cares only for popularity and the fast set until war transforms her life, while her cousin Volodya carves out a position in Soviet intelligence that will affect not only this war but also the war to come.
Rezension
"Some of the biggest-picture fiction being written today." - The Seattle Times
"A consistently compelling portrait of a world in crisis." - The Washington Post
"Masterfully sweeping. . . . Political intrigue, amorous episodes, suspense, and drama. History comes to life." - The Louisville Courier-Journal
"[Follett] is so good at plotting a story, even one that takes on such a complex topic such as the World War II era. That's what makes Winter of the World so hard to put down. You want to know what happens next." -The Associated Press
"An entertaining historical soap opera." - Kirkus Reviews
"Gripping . . . powerful." - The New York Times
"This book is truly epic . . . The reader will probably wish there was a thousand more pages." - The Huffington Post
