Sarum: The Novel of England

A book by Edward Rutherfurd

< read all 1 reviews

A magnificent saga of families through history

  • Mar 5, 1999
Rating:
+5
This is a sweeping historical saga in the Michener vein, with clearly drawn characters and some of the most beautiful countryside in England. What makes it particularly interesting is that the story happens around and along side the great events of history, making the characters and the story all the more believable. It was a sensation when published, and rightly so. It is wonderful.

About this book

Wiki

YA This sprawling novel follows the fortunes and losses of five families from the Stone Age through the present time. Each of the families can be identified through genetic characteristics handed down through the agesnot simply physical characteristics, but attitudes and morals, too. There is plenty of action to keep readers motivated to finish the book. Rutherford has a style and energy all his own that should appeal to young readers of historical fiction. This book will be a hit with young adults who have the time and attention for longer works. Mary A. Williams, Harris County Public Library
