"World Without End", set in the same fictional town of 'Kingsbridge' as 'Pillars of the Earth', follows the descendants of major "Pillars" characters, two centuries later, incorporating historical events of the start of the 'Hundred Years' War' and the 'Black Death', during the reign of 'King Edward III'.
