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.

I got half way through this book & just could not finish. The reader was very good. The history was interesting, especially the little details that you don''t find in the history books, but the majority of the characters were unlikable. Therefore, I didn't care what happened to them, so there was really no reason to continue.

Winifred Page and her corgi, Watson, move to Estes Park to hit the Reset button on life. Fred is about to open her dream bookshop, and the only challenges she anticipates are adjusting to small-town life, tourists, and living close to her lovable mother, Phyllis, and hippie stepfather, Barry. When Fred steps into her soon-to-be-bookshop for the first time, she expects dust bunnies and spiders...not the dead body in the upstairs kitchen.

This was not a fun mystery. I figured out the killer before it was half through. Too much wasted space in descriptions and explanations of marijuana. Title is deceptive...too little corgi content.
