Here is Edward Rutherfurd's classic novel of London, a glorious pageant spanning 2,000 years. He brings this vibrant city's long and noble history alive through the ever-shifting fortunes, fates, and intrigues of half-a-dozen families, from the age of Julius Caesar to the 20th century. Generation after generation, these families embody the passion, struggle, wealth, and verve of the greatest city in the world.

Good stuff, but can’t compare to Sarum,which was one of my favorite reads. Being a confirmed Anglophile I was anxious to focus on London. Sarum is so wide in scope, I thought London would be just my cup of tea. Similar but no where nearly as good.
