it was amazing

A sprawling historical novel as big as London itself - it was required reading before I went to study abroad and I've read it twice since. Rutherford did an incredible amount of research and it all comes together beautifully. The characters' family trees carry through the entire history of Britain - pre-Roman through WWII. This book is so dear to my heart!

Karen My daughter who had just been to London recommended the book to me. I have been to London and after reading the book, I want to go back and visit all of the places cited in the stories!! Reading a history book usually puts me to sleep. I loved being able to read the historical facts brought to life and keeping me wide awake with the life history stories of the fictional characters.

Susan Corbett "London" is a great novel full of historical information that I loved investigating.

Helen Eidt Planning trip to London soon. Thought I would enjoy this novel since I loved Ruska several years ago by this author.

Greg Natialie, agreed, five star read, sensational!
