Description

Following The Soldier's Return, heralded as "a novel written in fine steel sentences and granite paragraphs" by the Washington Post, and the equally brilliant A Son of War, Melvyn Bragg brings "one of the finest sagas of postwar Britain" (London Sunday Telegraph) to a stunning conclusion. Set in the 1950s, this absorbing novel follows the intertwined fates of people crossing boundaries in their lives. Alive with a wide cast of characters, Crossing the Lines vividly portrays the spirit and atmosphere of the mid-century and the profound changes taking place at the time, in morals, religion, music, and social class. Moving and evocative, this masterly novel and the two that have preceded it are rightfully hailed as contemporary classics.
