Praise

“An epic feat. . . . Billed as Diana Gabaldon meets Ken Follett, Pillars of Light is timely, stirring and romantic—but there’s more to this book than a tale of love. . . . Riveting, enlightening and painful, this novel reveals the senselessness of warfare and conflict and provokes reflection about current events. But it’s also about the resilience of love and the hope, the capacity for goodness, that exists in everyone.” —The Globe and Mail 

“Jane Johnson has given her readers another swashbuckling adventure saga of West meets East in Pillars of Light.” —Toronto Star

“Jane Johnson has combined a scorchingly powerful story of warring nations with sensual tales of forbidden love. Brilliantly conveying all the complexities of human nature, regardless of race, religion or culture, Johnson’s talent for unlocking the senses allows us to experience the wonders of exotic worlds, the powers of alchemy and the aching sweetness of honey.” —Linda Holeman, bestselling author of The Devil on Her Tongue

Pillars of Light is a masterpiece of historical fiction. With her unique voice and unrivalled expertise, Jane Johnson has once again breathed life into a crucial but forgotten moment in history. Famous names and locations spring to life in all their glory and grit, and we get to inhabit a world that has been cut in half by prejudice and ignorance—a world which must be seen as a whole in order to heal. Pillars of Light is destined to become a classic, and Jane Johnson deserves a standing ovation for this brilliant contribution to the fight against religious intolerance.” —Anne Fortier, author of Juliet
