Description
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. 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
