First published in 1966, A Man of His Time continues the chronicles of the Oldroyd and Morcar families, which began with Inheritance and The Rise of Henry Morcar, to complete an unforgettable trilogy of the West Riding. The years of change from 1958 to 1965 present Henry Morcar with the severest challenges and trickiest assignments of his life as he surmounts successive disasters only to find his life’s work threatened.
