Pillars of the Earth
Our Book Club selection this month was Pillars of the Earth by Ken Follett. It was a huge volume,900 plus pages, but very interesting. It makes you very glad you didn't live in the 12th century. If you think wealth mean power it is now nothing like it was then. The earl could kill and rape and was beyond prosecution. Women had little if any rights at all and the church was a very temporal power. Our club met at Fillipa's in Sterling Heights. We will meet there again as it was a wonderful restaurant. Some of the women don't bother to read the books but come for the lunch.
