Daniel  Wolf - The Light of the World
 
 
 

 

The sequel of the big Spiegel bestseller The Salt of the Earth

Varennes-Saint-Jacques in the year of the Lord 1218: one town, three people, three fates. Illuminator Rémy Fleury is dreaming of a library in which anybody can study the wisdom of the ancient thinkers. His father Michel, the mayor of Varennes, wants to lead his home town to peace and affluence, while in Lorraine there is a war waging. The young patrician Philippine is caught up in her past and makes a fateful decision. What they all have in common is the longing for a better future, but their enemies spare no effort to stop them. The ambitious town councillor Anseau Lefèvre in particular has sworn he will annihilate the Fleury family. Nobody suspects that Lefèvre himself is harbouring a grim secret…



Volume 1, The Salt of the Earth, was published in June 2013.

"… brilliantly written, just like its predecessor, and absolutely unputdownable."
