This book was recommended to me - & I have not been disappointed. Edward Rutherford takes us through the history of Salisbury and its surrounds, starting with pre-historic times. We follow the fortunes of various residents over the periods so it is not dry history but gives us insights into the lives, pleasures, dilemnas, hopes and fears, etc. of typical people of the period. We get a feel for what it was like to live at the various times. It all seems so real. As we meet descendants certain physical and emotional characterists re-emerge so that similar people live in different periods.
I shall certainly be looking out for other works by Edward Rutherford.
