Edward Rutherford's "china"


Recommended Posts

Edward Rutherford wrote many a good historical novel:  Sarum, London, Paris, New York, two Irish books, Galilee, etc.  He also wrote one titled China.  When I went into Barnes and Nobel and asked about "China", the sales person said - quite soberly - "We don't sell that book".  It was almost as if some controversy has arisen about the book.  But all he would say is "We don't sell that book".

 

Has anyone heard anything about the book?  Thanks.

Hmmm.  I don't know.  Usually, when a book has not yet been published, they will tell us the publication date.  Two that I went for will be published next April and another in January.  He told me those.  But all he said about "China" is "We do not sell that book" 

 

I'll be at a different B&N next week.  Shall see what they say.  Thank you.  Hazel

I finally got the book.  I contacted the author and he said it would be out May 15, 2021. I then placed a pre-order for it.  Sure enough.  Right on the dot.  Have not yet read it but will be doing so.
