Publisher's Summary

A magnificent, sweeping history in which Rutherfurd captures the essence of the English heartland, from the author of Paris, London and New York.  

Few places lie closer to the heart of the nation's heritage than the New Forest. Now, Edward Rutherfurd weaves its history and legends into compelling fiction. From the mysterious killing of King William Rufus, treachery and witchcraft, smuggling and poaching run through this epic tale of well-born ladies, lowly woodsmen, sailors, merchants and Cistercian monks.

The feuds, wars, loyalties and passions of generations reach their climax in a crime that shatters the decorous society of Jane Austen's Bath and whose ramifications continue through the age of the Victorian railway builders to the ecologists of the present day.

Brilliantly written history of one of England’s best loved natural areas

I thoroughly recommend this book!. Cleverly written using 900 centuries of local history. I truly didn’t want it to end. It was also wonderful to have a narrator who was able to voice female characters without sounding like a comic female impersonator. Well worth every cent spent.
