By 1865 the Great Western Railway had spread across Cornwall changing the face of the countryside with earthworks and viaducts. Now a new line is under construction bringing with it an army of navvies who are feared by the locals, ill-used by the railway company, and a source of amusement for bored aristocratic ladies. Two men and two women of vastly differing backgrounds are drawn together by corruption, intrigue and tragedy. In the wake of disaster each must make choices and the stakes are high.

MEDIA REVIEWS
5.0 out of 5 stars Loved it 22 Sep 2012 By David Heppenstall This is the third time I have read The Iron Road and enjoyed it just as much this time. I like the multi-faceted story, the different characters weaving in and out and how they develop and reach their goals. It is reminiscent of Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice with it's multiple characters and different motivations. The story brings to life how the navvies lived and the contrast between them and the better off. I particularly like the way the author explores the deep personal feelings and interactions of the characters. As a footnote, I cannot understand the negative review by K Conklin which objects to just about everything good in the book, and which would equally apply to the delightful books of Jane Austen.
