Summary

Douglas Tallentire has at last achieved what his father and grandfather before him fought for so bitterly. Educated and independent, he can carve out his own career and spread his wings. But success, freedom and happiness are more elusive than ever in the fiercely competitive '70s. From Cumbria to the frenetic whirl of sophisticated life in New York and London, Douglas, like all the Tallentires, must come to terms with private uncertainty and pain.

Thy will be done.

I won’t even try to summarise this epic work, suffice to say the Lord Bragg delivers in such a way that the reader or listener will be able to identify with many of the characters in areas and situations that we have all experienced.Malcolm Sinclair follows the pace and delivers the stories and the various threads of the family in a natural and beautiful way , this Bragg/Sinclair team are perfectly matched.
