Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

“AS ENTERTAINING AS SARUM AND RUTHERFURDS OTHER SWEEPING NOVEL OF BRITISH HISTORY, LONDON.”

-The Boston Globe

“Engaging . . . A sprawling tome that combines fact with fiction and covers 900 years in the history of New Forest, a 100,000-acre woodland in southern England . . . Rutherfurd sketches the histories of six fictional families, ranging from aristocrats to peasants, who have lived in the forest for generations. . . . But the real success is in how Rutherfurd paints his picture of the wooded enclave with images of treachery and violence, as well as magic and beauty.”

-The New York Post

THE FOREST IS MICHENER TOLD WITH AN ENGLISH ACCENT.”

-St. Louis Post-Dispatch

“TALES OF LOVE AND HONOR, DECEIT AND VIOLENCE, INHERITANCE AND LOSS.”

-San Jose Mercury News
