iOS iPad Books
The first novel in the CENTURY trilogy, LA CAÍDA DE LOS GIGANTES (Fall of Giants) follows the fates of five interrelated families as they move through the world-shaking dramas of the First World War, the Russian Revolution, and the struggle for women’s suffrage.
Thirteen-year-old Billy Williams enters a man’s world in the Welsh mining pits… Gus Dewar, an American law student rejected in love, finds a surprising new career in Woodrow Wilson’s White House… two orphaned Russian brothers embark on radically different paths half a world apart when their plan to emigrate to America falls afoul of war and revolution… Billy’s sister, Ethel, a housekeeper for the aristocratic Fitzherberts, takes a fateful step above her station, while Lady Fitzherbert herself crosses deep into forbidden territory when she falls in love with a spy at the German Embassy in London…. These characters and many others find their lives inextricably entangled in a saga of unfolding drama and intriguing complexity.
