THE WESTCOTT CHRONICLES OF BATH
Go Swift & Far is a sweeping coming of age sage that exposes the deceit and hypocrisy lurking behind the genteel facades of the famous City of Bath.
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 England’s Finest Georgian City.
From bestselling author Douglas Westcott comes An Unfolding Soul – A tale of Bath; an inspiring novel of resilience and reinvention, set in Britain’s finest Georgian city.
Ian Morris lies in a coma in Bath’s Royal United Hospital, mind and body shattered, with nothing remaining of his hard-earned fortune. Can he recover to re-build his property empire? Will he be part of the greed-driven destruction gripping historical Bath in the swinging sixties? Or will he soften his rapacious desire for profit and recognise how to change his own destiny and restore the city’s fortunes?
An Unfolding Soul continues Westcott’s sweeping coming of age saga, painting a shocking portrait of Bath, and shining a spotlight on little-known aspects of the city’s colourful past. Business, politics and history are interwoven in this page-turning tale, with Westcott’s engaging prose filled with moments of cultural interest, humour, and ultimately, hope.
