The community, its traditions, etc., is shaped by movements largeAlfred's wars against Viking raiders, the Norman conquest, religious vagaries and persecutionsand smallthe communal repair of a pool, the naming of an ox, and quarrels from one generation that bring prosperity or death to succeeding ones. Similar to Edward Rutherfurd's Sarum (LJ 9/15/87), another novel of England, this is more lyrical and compact. Highly recommended. Cynthia Johnson Wheal ler, Cary Memorial Lib., Lexington, Mass.
