AS THE CROW FLIES
JEFFREY ARCHER
Yet another unputdownable novel by the master storyteller and best selling author of books like Kane and Abel and The Prodigal Daughter.This modern fairy tale set in early 20th century England, is a rags to riches story spanning the two World Wars.It is the story of a man who starts his life's journey with only his dreams,sheer grit and ambition to propel him to success.All young Charlie inherits is his costermonger grandfather's shrewd business acumen,down to earth commonsense,sense of humor and his barrow.With this capital and the refusal to let any setback defeat him, he embarks on his mission to own the 'biggest barrow in the world'.His classmate 'posh porky',Rebecca Salmon,the only woman he will ever love is his business partner and his pillar of strength.Together they overcome all the odds to develop a small shop in chelsea into a huge enterprise;to become Sir and Lady Charles Trumper.The only shadow over their happiness seem to be their life long foe and a secret from the past.From grinding poverty in the streets of Whitechapel to the elegance of Chelsea Terrace only a few miles away 'as the crow flies';Charlie Trumper travels a thousand miles to fortune and recognition.It is an epic tale ,a saga of love,courage, ambition and success.It is a novel about daring to dream and realising your mission.
