Martin Allen is a thirty-five-year-old construction surveyor, an ordinary man who is pursuing a long-run ambition of tracing his family tree. His search has finally come to an end, stopping at a record of a baptism held in 1777 of a child called Jacob, to parents Edward and Elizabeth Allen. No more information can be found beyond that date, it is a mystery to him who his ancestors were. This story covers the lost story of his discovered ancestors and follows three generations from the Georgian period to the beginning of the Victorian age. The setting is the county of Norfolk, particularly around the city of Norwich, and covers the lives of simple working people living around both a rural and city setting who are enjoying love, suffering loss and tragedy, and living their lives according to the seasons.show more
