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

This ebook edition features a new introduction by the author in honor of the thirtieth anniversary of Sarum.
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.

Praise for Sarum

"Bursts with action, encyclopedic in historic detail . . . supremely well crafted and a delight to read."Chicago Tribune

"A fascinating journey . . . a clear yet sparkling window upon history with a superb narrative, so perfectly balanced between history and fiction that it clears away the mists of time from antiquity, giving the reader the impression that events over a span of ten centuries occurred only yesterday."Fort Worth Star-Telegram
"Strong . . . appealing . . . I haven't read so satisfactory a saga in years . . . in fact, perhaps not ever before. . . . It gives you not only history but comfort."Chicago Sun-Times

"[Edward] Rutherfurd holds us all consistently intrigued. In Sarum he has created a splendid novel that will bring many hours of diversified reading pleasure."The Plain Dealer

"A richly imagined vision of history, written with genuine delight."San Francisco Chronicle

"Rutherfurd is at his best. . . . His storytelling skills are substantial. . . . One of the best books of the season."Kansas City Star

"Absorbing . . . a superior historical novel . . . This blockbuster saga should appeal to discriminating readers, since Rutherfurd has an excellent grasp of his subject and a compelling story to tell."Publishers Weekly
