Editorial Reviews

Review

“Not all good things come in small packages. If you like books that are big, Edward Rutherfurd is your man. He writes wonderful sagas, tales that cover centuries, always keeping these long stories lively by telling us about the events and conflicts of people’s lives. Rutherfurd does the painstaking research; the reader has all the fun.”
–Seattle Times

“Many of the most memorable characters are women–Adela the Norman, bold in the face of injustice; her descendant Alice Albion, almost brave enough to defeat the hatred of the civil war; tough old Adelaide, so loyal to ancient grievances that she can’t let her sweet niece Fanny take hold of love.”
–Kansas City Star

“The novel covers 10 centuries, tracking a half-dozen or so families and their fates, their fortunes, and intrigues moving the stories along. But the trees have tales to tell, too. As fiction, it works like a charm. . . . English majors will love this, and so will almost anyone else who starts page 1 and follows Puckle, Godwin Pride, Cola the Huntsman and their descendents along Rutherfurd’s twisting road.”
–New York Daily News

From the Inside Flap

“AS ENTERTAINING AS SARUM AND RUTHERFURD’S 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

5.0 out of 5 stars The Forest history brought to life
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on May 18, 2019
Absolutely loved this book. I've lived in the New Forest most of my life and to read the old tales with their subtle embroidery and see the old family names cunningly disguised to protect the guilty is a rare treat.

There is magic in the New Forest, always was and always will be from the mist over the peat bogs to the sun dancing on the salt marshes and the deer running through the trees with the ponies. He 'gets' the Forest and that is a rare thing these days.. Mr. Rutherford is a welcome visitor because he understands and respects the old ways and how they have adapted to survive the new ones - the boat builders, the remnants of the salt pans down at The Salterns and the White Hart, the descendants of whom you might glimpse among the trees if you are very, very lucky. I've seen her just the once on a misty early Spring morning and felt all the better for seeing her.
