I first read this novel in the summer of 1975 whilst on holiday in Cornwall. Made the mistake of lending it to someone who did not return it and had to purchase it again about 30 years ago. Absolutely delighted to have been able to download to Kindle and to read it for the third time - something I would not normally do.
This book is Susan Howatch's finest and is a timeless read, with each complex character brought to life throughout. Cleverly written so that you can see everybody's perspective on each situation - just absolutely adore this book and anyone who loves to get their teeth into a brilliant family saga will do too. A "must" for anyone who loves plausible fiction written by a first class author. Excellent for a good holiday read. Thank you for bringing this to a whole new generation via electronic reading!
