James Falconer returns in the third House of Falconer historical novel from multi-million copy bestseller Barbara Taylor Bradford.


The Somme, 1916. James Falconer, once a barrow boy on a London market, stands in the trenches, awaiting the command to go over the top. Away from his business empire in London, he is simply a soldier, war the great leveller.


But, unlike his men, and unknown to them, deep down, Falconer doesn’t care if he lives or dies.


When a face from the past offers James the chance to repair his fractured relationship with his estranged daughter, Leonie, he must decide if he can hold different things dear – and make space in his life for love.


But the war has left terrible scars, both personal and professional, and swept huge changes through the glittering world he once inhabited. James must weather myriad storms as he attempts to right past wrongs and build a new life.

“Rather slow and wooden”

I read this book courtesy of NetGalley. This is the first book I've read by this prolific, popular writer but found that I just couldn't get into it. I realise that this book is the third in a series and... More
