Summary

Two days after Notre Dame burned, I flew to Paris to appear on the TV programme La Grande Librairie for a discussion about cathedrals. The following morning I had breakfast at the Hotel Bristol with my French publisher and she asked me to write a short book about Notre Dame and what it means to all of us. She said she would donate the publisher’s profits to the rebuilding fund and, if I wished, I could do the same with my royalties. Yes, I said; of course, I’d love to. (Ken Follett)

Born of his admiration for an an iconic cathedral and how it has influenced his own work, this short book about Notre Dame’s history is Ken Follett’s contribution to the fund created to help rebuild it, a fund that will increase with every sale that is made of the book. 

This edition contains an exclusive extract from The Evening and the Morning, a prequel to The Pillars of the Earth.

Ken Follett will be donating 100 per cent of his royalties to the charity La Fondation du Patrimoine.

Too Short

Very interesting but too short. I've would have loved to keep hearing about Notre Dame's stories.
