El umbral de la eternidad cierra esta gran trilogía y la crónica de un siglo turbulento. En ella vivimos la historia íntima y personal de tres generaciones de cinco familias cuyas vidas estuvieron marcadas por dos guerras mundiales, la Revolución rusa, la Guerra Civil española y la Guerra Fría, junto con los profundos cambios sociales que las acompañaron.

Tercer volumen de la trilogía «The Century»

En el año 1961 Rebecca Hoffmann, profesora en Alemania del Este y nieta de Lady Maud, descubrirá que la policía secreta está vigilándola. Mientras, su hermano menor, Walli, sueña con huir a Occidente para convertirse en músico de rock.

Por otro lado, Georges Jakes, un joven abogado que trabaja con los hermanos Kennedy, es un activista del movimiento por los derechos civiles de los negros en Estados Unidos que participará en las protestas de los estados del Sur y en la marcha sobre Washigton liderada por Martin Luther King.

En Rusia las inclinaciones políticas enfrentan a los hermanos Tania y Dimka Dvorkin. Este se convierte en una de las jóvenes promesas del Kremlin mientras su hermana entrará a formar parte de un grupo activista que promueve la insurrección.

A través de escenas impactantes y protagonistas fascinantes, Ken Follett nos presenta un mundo que pensábamos conocer pero que nunca más nos parecerá lo mismo.

«La trilogía "The Century" es la historia de mis abuelos y de los vuestros, de nuestros padres y de nuestras propias vidas. De alguna forma es la historia de todos nosotros.».- Ken Follet

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

Ken Follett's extraordinary historical epic, the Century Trilogy, reaches its sweeping, passionate conclusion.

In Fall of Giants and Winter of the World, Ken Follett followed the fortunes of five international families—American, German, Russian, English, and Welsh—as they made their way through the twentieth century. Now they come to one of the most tumultuous eras of all: the 1960s through the 1980s, from civil rights, assassinations, mass political movements, and Vietnam to the Berlin Wall, the Cuban Missile Crisis, presidential impeachment, revolution—and rock and roll.

East German teacher Rebecca Hoffmann discovers she’s been spied on by the Stasi for years and commits an impulsive act that will affect her family for the rest of their lives. . . . George Jakes, the child of a mixed-race couple, bypasses a corporate law career to join Robert F. Kennedy's Justice Department and finds himself in the middle of not only the seminal events of the civil rights battle but a much more personal battle of his own. . . . Cameron Dewar, the grandson of a senator, jumps at the chance to do some official and unofficial espionage for a cause he believes in, only to discover that the world is a much more dangerous place than he'd imagined. . . . Dimka Dvorkin, a young aide to Nikita Khrushchev, becomes an agent both for good and for ill as the United States and the Soviet Union race to the brink of nuclear war, while his twin sister, Tanya, carves out a role that will take her from Moscow to Cuba to Prague to Warsaw—and into history.
