Publisher's Summary

It is Greenwich, Connecticut, in the early 1950s, and a set of twins is separated at birth by a desperate nurse. Nat Davenport goes home with his parents, a schoolteacher and an insurance salesman. But his twin brother is to begin his days as Fletcher Cartwright, the son of a wealthy CEO and his wife. During the years that follow, the two brothers grow up unaware of each other's existence. Nat leaves college at the University of Connecticut to serve in Vietnam. Returning a war hero, he finishes school and goes on to become a successful bank executive. Meanwhile, Fletcher has graduated from Yale University and distinguished himself as a criminal defence lawyer and politician.
As their lives unfold, both men are confronted with tragedy and betrayal, loss and hardship, all the time overcoming life's obstacles to become the men they are destined to be. In the tradition of Jeffrey Archer's most popular books, Sons of Fortune is as much a chronicle of a nation in transition as it is the story of the making of these two men and how, eventually, they come to find each other.

Privilege and US Politics

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

This is a popular theme, I would recommend it to someone who follows US affairs.

What does Martin Jarvis bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Brings the characters to life. You forget you are listening to a reader and quickly become absorbed in the journey.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

I can't think of one right now

Classic Archer

With his usual skill Jeffery Archer manages to keep you listening and throw in a few plot bombs. Not his best, but still well worth a listen.

Another excellent book from Jeffrey Archer. Riveting from start to finish. The narration was also excellent.
