The captivating third and final book in R.F. Delderfield's Swann family saga, the bestselling trilogy which began with GOD IS AN ENGLISHMAN and THEIRS WAS THE KINGDOM.
Adam Swann has grown old, and is struggling to keep up with the changing times. The Victorian age is giving way to the Edwardian and the horse is being overtaken by the motorcar, with devastating effect on his transport business.
As the new century is born, the Boer war brings tragedy, but even this cannot quench the indomitable spirit of the Swann family.
