Publisher's Summary

If your dream is big enough, not even your enemies can stop you....
Charlie Trumper's earliest memory is of hearing his grandfather's sales patter from behind his costermonger's barrow. When Grandpa Charlie dies, young Charlie wants nothing more than to follow in his footsteps - his burning ambition is to own a shop that will sell everything: 'The Biggest Barrow in the World'.
Charlie's progress from the teeming streets of Whitechapel to the elegance of Chelsea Terrace is only a few miles as the crow flies. But in Jeffrey Archer's expert hands it becomes an epic journey through the triumphs and disasters of the century, as Charlie follows a thread of love, ambition, and revenge to fulfil the dream his grandfather inspired.

EXACTLY what I wanted

I was in the mood for a sweeping saga, and I knew Jeffery Archer was the perfect author to turn to. It was just the thing for my craving!

You have to know what you are signing up for when you settle into one of his books, there is very little dialogue and so I always feel like I am being told ABOUT a story as opposed to reading a story.. does that make sense?

Some constants about Jeffery Archer’s style:

•Very little dialogue
•More “telling” than “showing”
•Books that feel like a collection of short stories
•Somewhat predictable plots
•Many similarities to past books

But all this is good because if you know precisely what you’re going to get, you won’t be disappointed. I was entertained the entire way through!

Twice as good the second time around

I read this book years ago. It was a pleasure hearing it. Narrator John Lee really brought it to life. I've read most of Archer's books, this is one of his best. I promise you'll be hanging on to every word.
