Diana Gabaldon meets Ken Follett in this epic story of love, war and redemption. In the Syrian city of Akka, Nathanael, a young Jewish doctor, and a Muslim girl called Zohra are about to fall in love, unaware that Jerusalem has just been taken by Saladin's army and that their city will soon be engulfed by war. Meanwhile in England, John Savage, a foundling boy, runs away from his cruel life in a priory with The Moor, a mysterious man driven by a dream of perfection. John and The Moor become members of a band of conmen travelling through the English countryside faking religious miracles for cash, until they are recruited in Richard the Lionheart's drive to regain the Latin Kingdom from the infidel. Akka awaits. It will be the site of the greatest--and cruellest--siege of its time. But even in the midst of war, lovers find ways to make transactions of beauty. Pillars of Light is a powerful and moving novel about the triumph of the human spirit against all the odds. It will delight fans of Philippa Gregory, Ken Follett and Diana Gabaldon.

Did you ever have to pause in reading a book because you know the bad stuff's going to happen and it hurts your heart already?😣😔

MicheleinPhilly Yep. I‘m reading The Nickel Boys right now and I think I‘m going to have to supplement my reading with something lighter. 😔 3mo

Mehso-so

I really struggled with this one. I just couldn't bring myself to care about one of the main characters. But I kept on reading since I had loved this author's previous books. I did end up enjoying it, but it took way too long to reach that point.
