Summary
Set against the backdrop of the British Empire, two boys, George, the son of a poor vicar, and Arthur, who will become a famous writer, pursue their separate destinies until they meet in a remarkable alliance
Summary
Arthur and George grow up worlds and miles apart in late nineteenth-century Britain: Arthur in shabby-genteel Edinburgh; George the son of a vicar in a small Staffordshire village. Arthur becomes a doctor; George a solicitor. As the new century begins, the unlikely pair are brought together by a series of events which made sensational headlines as the Great Wriley Outrages. We follow each man's journey through outrageous accusation and unrivaled success, through faith and perseverance and dogged self-recrimination, whether in the dock awaiting complete disgrace or at the height of fame while desperately in love with a woman not his wife.
