Dear Ken
Just wanted you to know how much I’ve enjoyed reading your books throughout the years. Thanks so much for the educational historical fiction that you spent years researching and I spent years reading!

I want to congratulate you for all your novels. I’m an absolute fan of ‘The Pillars of the Earth’, and I’ve read almost all your other titles. They are fantastic. Keep up the good work!

I just finished a long night reading ‘The Third Twin’. Wow, what a great read. I lost a lot of sleep, but man was it worth it. Great story line and characters. I enjoy all your work, the subjects vary, but you get me hooked, then it a fast and furious race to get to the end to see how you solved the story. Thanks for your dedicated efforts to make the stories real and historically accurate, but great action as well. Got to go to the library and pick up one of the few books of your that I have not read yet.

I’m so glad to read about your new book ‘World Without End’. ‘Pillars’ is my all time favorite book (I’ve read it twice and listened to the audiobook twice)! I’ve read all your books and loved them. As a high school English teacher, I use your books to ‘hook’ high school kids (successfully)into reading.
I’m looking forward to a new one next year!

I just wanted to say that you are now my favorite author. My boyfriend recommended you to me about 3 weeks ago and I cannot get enough! I’m now on my 7th novel of yours and plan to work my way through to all of them. My favorite is ‘The Pillars of the Earth’ and I’m so excited that you are working on the sequel. That novel is far and away the best I’ve ever read – from anyone!

Please take care and keep writing!
