"A sweeping, carefully reconstructed portrait of a nation... leaps through the centuries."
The New York Times

"A giant, sprawling, easy-to-read story told in James Michener fashion."
—Maeve Binchy

"Rutherfurd is the history teacher you wished you had in high school... While high kings, conquerors, and princes are often at center stage of the book, it is the fictional merchants, craftsmen, chieftains, and soldiers affected by their actions that make us care about the history."
—San Antonio Express-News

"Spellbinding... [A] page-turning Dublin saga... Like James Michener and Leon Uris, Rutherfurd does a magnificent job of packaging a crackling good yarn within a digestible overview of complex historical circumstances and events."

St. Louis Post-Dispatch

Praise for Edward Rutherfurd:

"Not all good things come in small packages. If you like books that are big, Edward Rutherfurd is your man. He writes wonderful sagas, tales that cover centuries, always keeping these long stories lively by telling us about the events and conflicts of people's lives. Rutherfurd does the painstaking research; the reader has all the fun."
The Seattle Times
