A Norman noblewoman marries for love, following her husband across the sea to a new land, but the customs of her husband's homeland are shockingly different, and as she begins to realize that everyone around her is engaged in a constant, brutal battle for power, it becomes clear that a single misstep could be catastrophic. . . .

Now, Follett's masterful new prequel The Evening and the Morning takes us on an epic journey into a historical past rich with ambition and rivalry, death and birth, love and hate, that will end where The Pillars of the Earth begins.

The Morning and the Evening Book Description :

Finalist for the National Book Award: Joan Williams’s unforgettable first novel is the story of a small Southern town struggling to care for one of its own In a rundown farmhouse in Mississippi, Jake Darby wakes up one morning to find his world forever changed. His long-suffering mother has died overnight, abandoning forty-year-old Jake, who is mute and, according to his neighbors, not quite right in the head. With no family to take him in, it is up to the townspeople of Marigold to take care of Jake, a grave responsibility that brings out the best—and the worst—of a community in which painful truths are usually hidden from sight. In such a place, even the kindest of acts can lead to the most tragic of outcomes. Heralded as the debut of a major new talent when it was first published in 1961, The Morning and the Evening won the John P. Marquand First Novel Award from the Book-of-the-Month Club and established Joan Williams as a leading voice in Southern literature. Elegant, compassionate, and deeply unsettling, it is a portrait of the human spirit in all of its flawed and intricate beauty, and a tale firmly grounded in reality yet told with all the power of myth.

Five Minutes in the Evening Book Description :

The evening is a naturally reflective time of the day, when thoughts can end up going round and round in your head, landing on worst-case scenarios and interpretations. Five Minutes in the Evening is a guided journal designed to help you integrate any emotions experienced or discoveries made during the day and reflect on how you are feeling through the practice of journaling. The mere act of putting your thoughts onto paper can slow them down enough to allow you to consider them calmly rather than feeling consumed or overwhelmed by them. The human brain has a tendency to lean toward negative thinking, and so a few minutes of evening journaling is a very helpful tool for developing more positive mental habits. Focusing on gratitude has been shown to increase a person's sense of wellbeing and optimism, and describing the sensations associated with an activity you enjoy, such as how you feel in nature or while chatting to a good friend, offers similar benefits to the activity itself - your body will begin to feel the calm, grounded sensations that you feel in nature, or the sense of connection that you have while talking with a friend. Journaling is an excellent practice for clearing the clutter of your day and your mind. Simply writing down all the to-do lists that are floating around in your head, making you worried, can feel like a great relief. Many of the prompts and practices in this journal are based on the theme of letting go, as so many of us have a natural tendency to hold on to thoughts and mental or emotional baggage that are no longer serving us. In today's busy world, it can also be helpful to dedicate a few minutes at the end of the day to doing less, to allow your energy to settle in preparation for restful sleep and to consider what really matters to you.
