Immerse yourself in the stories of Ulverton, as heard on BBC Radio 4 Book at Bedtime'Sometimes you forget that it is a novel, and believe for a moment that you are really hearing the voice of the dead' Hilary MantelAt the heart of this novel lies the fictional village of Ulverton.

It is the fixed point in a book that spans three hundred years.

Different voices tell the story of Ulverton: one of Cromwell's soldiers staggers home to find his wife remarried and promptly disappears, an eighteenth century farmer carries on an affair with a maid under his wife's nose, a mother writes letters to her imprisoned son, a 1980s real estate company discover a soldier's skeleton, dated to the time of Cromwell... Told through diaries, sermons, letters, drunken pub conversations and film scripts, this is a masterful novel that reconstructs the unrecorded history of England.
