Rutherfurd, Edward.

Picture of Sarum.
I read this superior historical novel some years ago and, when we were offered this anniversary edition wth a new introduction by the author, we thought you would like it too. It tells the story of English civilisation through the prism of one place, Salisbury, and the saga of five families whose fates and fortunes intertwine over the centuries.

*** 30th Anniversary edition of the bestselling novel of England - now with a new introduction from Edward Rutherfurd *** The towering story of five families through 100 centuries of turmoil, tyranny, passion and prosperity. A masterpiece of breathtaking scope, from the Ice Age to the present day, Sarum traces the entire turbulent course of English history through the epic saga of five families. The Wilsons and the Shockleys, locked in a cycle of revenge and rivalry for more than 400 years; the Masons, who pour their inspired love of stone into the creation of Stonehenge and Salisbury Cathedral; the Porters, descended from a young Roman soldier in exile; and the aristocratic Godfreys, who will fall to the very bottom of the social ladder before their fortunes revive. As their fates and fortunes intertwine over the course of the centuries, through struggle and adventure, their greater destinies offer a fascinating glimpse into the future.
