In Sarum, Edward Rutherfurd weaves a compelling saga of five English families whose fates become intertwined over the course of centuries. While each family has its own distinct characteristics, the successive generations reflect the changing character of Britain. We become drawn not only into the fortunes of the individual family members, but also the larger destinies of each family line. Meticulously researched and epic in scope, Sarum covers the entire sweep of English civilization: from the early hunters and farmers, the creation of Stonehenge, the dawn of Christianity, and the Black Death; through the Reformation, the wars in America, the Industrial Age, and the Victorian social reforms; up through the World War II invasion of Normandy and the modern-day concerns of a once-preeminent empire.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“A richly imagined vision of history, written with genuine delight.” San Francisco Chronicle
“Bursts with action, encyclopedic in historic detail…Supremely well crafted and a delight to read.” Chicago Tribune
“[Wanda McCaddon] is ideal; her British accents fit the locale, and her pacing and characterizations are smooth, unobtrusive and compelling. The ease of her reading leads the listener to forget she is there, the sign of the perfect narrator.” AudioFile
“Rutherfurd has told the story of the land he was born in and has told it well...Highly recommended.”  Library Journal
“Rutherford holds us all consistently intrigued. In Sarum, he has created a splendid novel that will bring many hours of diversified reading pleasure.” Cleveland Plain Dealer
“Mammoth, sweeping (7500 BC to World War II) story of the English city of Salisbury, its environs and its people, told through the experiences of five rival families. From the ice-age to the present day, Rutherford’s scope is vast. Both historical novel and adventure epic, this is a work of universal appeal.” Kirkus UK
