From master author R. F. Delderfield, the first in the beloved classic God Is an Englishman series. The first novel in the epic God Is an Englishman series, this book is a stirring saga of England in the 19th century, as the Industrial Revolution takes hold, forever changing the landscape of England and her people. Adam Swann, scion of an army family, returns home in 1858 after service with Her Majesty's army in the Crimea and India, determined to build his fortune in the dog-eat-dog world of Victorian commerce. Swann is soon captivated by Henrietta, the high-spirited daughter of a local mill owner. As Swann works to build his name, he and Henrietta share adventures, reversal, and fortune. A beloved novel by a beloved author, God Is an Englishman is a treasure both for Delderfield fans and the growing legion of fans of historical fiction. "R. F. Delderfield is a born storyteller." Sunday Mirror "A book to get lost in... An epic historical novel artfully contructed." New York Times Book Review "A novel in the grand tradition of Thackery and Dickens." Milwaukee Journal "A delightful bounty of characters fairly jumps from the pages of God Is an Englishman." Columbus Dispatch
