The Sound of Coaches

Written by Leon Garfield

The Sound of Coaches Synopsis

One stormy December night some time in the eighteenth century, a coach came thundering down the long hill outside of Dorking on its usual journey into London. But something unusual was to happen that night as one of the passengers unepectedly gave birth to a child. Not until he was eight did Sam Chichester discover that the coachman and guard he called 'Ma and 'Pa' were not his real parents. Sam will need to grow up, leave home, and find love before he will finally uncover the truth about his parentage.

The Sound of Coaches Press Reviews

A book to savor and decipher, rich in atmosphere and character and style that strikes sparks from the cobbles * New Statesman * Filled with voluble wit -- Washington Post
