Overview

Harvard Yard by William Martin

Peter Fallon, the hero of William Martin's bestselling novel Back Bay, has found evidence that a priceless treasure-an undiscovered Shakespeare play-is hidden somewhere in the venerable halls of Harvard University. An antiquarian who knows many of the school's carefully guarded secrets, Fallon understands the powerful implications of the discovery. But as he delves into the school's past-from witch hangings to the fires of the Civil War to the riotous 1960s-he learns that men and women have risked death, disgrace, and banishment in pursuit of this invaluable relic. And, as he uncovers rifts between generations, families, friends, and lovers, Fallon begins to understand something else: that finding this landmark manuscript is a matter of life and death.

About the Author


William Martin is the New York Times bestselling author of ten novels, an award-winning PBS documentary, and a cult classic horror movie, too. His first novel, Back Bay, introduced treasure hunting hero Peter Fallon, who has now appeared in five novels, and spent fourteen weeks on the Times list. SInce then Martin has been telling stories of the great and the anonymous in American history, from the Pilgrims to 9/11. His novels, including Cape Cod, Annapolis, City of Dreams, and The Lincoln Letter, have established him as "a storyteller whose smootness equals his ambition" (Publisher's Weekly). He lives near Boston with his wife and has three grown children. In 2005, he was the recipient of the prestigious New England Book Award, given to "an author whose body of work stands as a significant contribution to the culture of the region."

The history of America mirrored in the history of Harvard University. William Martin does smooth transitions, chapter by chapter, between Then and Now. Through well portrayed characters and historic events we understand how early Puritan families become the Brahmins of Boston. The slow but inevitable evolution of religious thought and cultural expression through the centuries is revealed as generation gives way to generation. The interweaving mystery is the icing on the cake. At the end, all the t's are not crossed nor the i's all dotted, which is true to life. Makes me want to read more William Martin, more Shakespeare, more Harvard, more New England.

This is the second book to follow Back Bay and is just as good as the first book. It picks up the characters years later and brings them back into another adventure. The historical aspect is still very good and the narrative between the past and present is very well written. I love the style of writing and the historical information given and how easily the writer transports the reader through time.
