London by Edward Rutherford

I just finished London, a historical novel by Edward Rutherford. Writing in the tradition of James Michener, the author tells stories of one location and the intertwined families who live there through history. I enjoyed the book for its portrayal of the many historical figures who people its pages. Someone who knows modern London (which I don’t) would also enjoy reading about the development of the city itself. Other books from Rutherford you might like include Sarum, about the English city of Salisbury, and Russka, set on a fictional Russian estate.
