God is an Englishman
Adam Swann, scion of an Army family and veteran of campaigns in the Crimea and India, determines to make his fortune and found his own dynasty. His struggle to succeed and his conquest of Henrietta, the spirited daughter of a rich manufacturer, form the central theme of a novel that takes the reader from the dusty plains of India to the teeming slums of nineteenth-century London, from the chaos of the great industrial cities of the age to the peaceful certainties of the English countryside.
Filled with epic scenes and memorable characters, God Is an Englishman is a rich novel of remarkable strength, honesty, love, and warmth.
