Sarum: The Novel of England

(Häftad)
Beskrivning:

A masterpiece of breathtaking scope--a brilliantly conceived epic novel that traces the entire turbulent course of English history

This rich tapestry weaves a compelling saga of five families--the Wilsons, the Masons, the family of Porteus, the Shockleys, and the Godfreys--who reflect the changing character of Britain. As their fates and fortunes intertwine over the course of the centuries, their greater destinies offer a fascinating glimpse into the future. An absorbing historical chronicle, Sarum is a keen tale of struggle and adventure, a profound human drama, and a magnificent work of sheer storytelling.
