As the Crow Flies Summary

As the Crow Flies by Jeffrey Archer

Enthralling and ambitious, Sunday Times bestseller Jeffrey Archer's As The Crow Flies brings to life one man's rise from rags to riches - a boy who inherits a barrow and ends up with the biggest supermarket chain in the world.

Growing up in the slums of East End London, Charlie Trumper dreams of someday running his grandfather's fruit and vegetable stall. That day comes all too suddenly when his grandfather dies, leaving him his legacy, his barrow.

The onset of World War I takes Charlie far from home to the trenches of Normandy where he learns to deal with any enemy. Returning to the East End, he finds his barrow stolen, and comes straight into conflict with a dangerous enemy whose legacy of evil will follow him and his family for generations, even as Charlie strives to fulfil the dream his grandfather inspired.

In an epic journey set against the turbulent backdrop of a changing century and spanning three continents and sixty years, this mesmerizing tale showcases Archer formidable talents.
