about

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.
