really liked it

Having read several of the Grantchester books, I was excited to learn about Sidney’s early life, and the Road to Grantchester did not disappoint. From the beginnings of his relationship with Amanda Kendall, through the horrors of his war experience with her brother Robert, to his decision to join the church, James Runcie’s tale flows along at a good pace throughout. Being a prequel, the ending was already known, but it was fascinating to see how Sidney became the man he is in the Grantchester series.

The attention to detail was maintained during the whole story, especially in the description of the battle of Monte Cassino and the traumas faced by the soldiers involved.

A book that’s easy to read and one you won’t want to put down,
