    1920: After his return from the battlefields in France, Walter Langdon and his wife Rosanna begin their life together on a remote farm in Iowa. As time passes, their little family will grow: from Frank, the handsome, willful first-born, to Joe, whose love of animals and the land sustains him; from Lillian, beloved by her mother, to Henry who craves only the world of his books; and Claire, the surprise baby, who earns a special place in her father's heart.

    A really pleasant listen

    It was such a pleasant listen which was really lovely for relaxing with a cup of tea.

    It's 1953. When a funeral brings the Langdon family together once more, they little realize how much, over the coming years, each of their worlds will shift and change. For now Walter and Rosanna's sons and daughters are grown up and have children of their own. Frank, the eldest - restless, unhappy - ignores his troubled wife and instead finds himself distracted by a face from the past.

    Was this the most boring book I have ever read?

    someone who enjoys immense detail may like this book

    The third novel in the dazzling Last Hundred Years trilogy from the winner of the Pulitzer Prize. It's 1987. A visit from a long-lost relative brings the Langdons together again on the family farm - a place almost unrecognisable from the remote Iowan farmland Walter and Rosanna once owned. Whilst a few have stayed, most have spread wide across the US, but all are facing social, economic and political challenges unlike anything their ancestors encountered.

    A story of yesterday, today and tomorrow

    I am bereft that I have come to the end of this brilliant trilogy. I feel that The Langdons are personal friends and I am really going to miss them...Show More »
