Lili Franck, Rebecca and Walli's youngest sister who protests the Communist government of East Germany by singing subversive songs. In East Germany, teacher Rebecca Hoffmann finds her entire life has been a lie as she is targeted by the secret police, even as her younger brother, Walli, dreams of escape across the Berlin Wall to Britain. Rebecca looked around for something else to throw at him, and her gaze fell on the matchstick model of the Brandenburg Gate. Beginning in 1961, almost two decades after the end of World War II, the novel depicts a post-war Britannia that is no longer the master of the high seas.No doubt the project was a way of passing the evenings he was obliged to spend with a woman he did not love. Maud dies, Grigory is visited on his death bed, what about the rest of the characters we loved and hated? Unlike the first two volumes, which gave considerable attention to British politics and charted the rise of the British Labor Party to prominence, culminating with the party's victory under Clement Attlee in 1945, this subject is nearly absent from the present volume.

Why drop so many characters we were invested in the first two books and which in the closing of the second made it look like we should look forward to what happens to them? While Lili sings subversive political songs, the dyslexic Walli's music is more mainstream, turning him into an international pop star in the band Plum Nellie. Edge of Eternity is the epic, final novel in Ken Follett’s captivating and hugely ambitious Century trilogy. The book ends with an epilogue set on November 4, 2008, the night of Barack Obama's election to President of the United States.However, one persistent complaint I have with Ken Follett is that he willfully ignores the story of the world as perceived by South Asians. Follett also integrates the key political figures, assassinations, protests, and strife of the past 50 years. Even with these serious flaws, if the book was entertaining or moving that could redeem it, but sadly it is not. A little harder to keep up with the name and follow generations, but you have learned to care about where they end up in this crazy world.
