From the cover: Born in the wartime German raids on Bath in the Spring of 1942, an orphan boy, alone and destitute, is determined to survive.
The City is immersed in a cycle of greed, abuse of privilege, corruption and demolition as it struggles out of post-war gloom and austerity. Demolish and rebuild or preserve and protect at all costs?
The boy, now a man, is bent on success and wealth, whatever the personal sacrifice and cost to Englands Finest Georgian City.
Go Swift & Far is a sweeping coming of age saga that exposes the deceit and hypocrisy lurking behind the genteel facades of the famous City of Bath
