Jan Brunt is a Dutchman who moves from the Netherlands to England to work on the drainage of the Fens around Ely Years later he s living in New Amsterdam and thinking back to his time in England in the 164os50s when the country was still in tumultuous times following the civil war I found this a little wordy at times and the story often moved slowly but it was beautifully written and an interesting story My only uibble is that the text was rather small and it felt a bit of a strain to read it

Jan Brunt arrives in Norfolk to drain The Fens and increase the amount of arable land funded by Norfolk s famous son Oliver Cromwell In Norfolk he meets and starts a relationship with Eliza who later tells her story and becomes a three dimensional character on a page The story eventually moves to New Amsterdam where we find Jan a bit of a recluse still earning his way as an engineer I was fascinated by the story of draining The Fens as Norfolk is just north of Suffolk where I live The engineering and work involved in bending nature to human endeavour has always fascinated me and I wanted to find out about how you stop water from spreading in a low lying piece of land Ideally I would have loved a couple of maps one of Norfolk and one of New Amsterdam showing the difference between the modern day maps we are familiar with Those short comings aside this was a great book

Ever since I read the review in The Guardian I have wanted to read this book the story set in the mid of the 17th century of Jan Brunt a Dutch engineer who comes to East Anglia to drain the marshes is told in a most beautiful prose Jan is the narrator and describes his undertaking with love as for him shaping the land is something than just making it available for agricultural purposes although fields which are ploughed and give fruit are part of his vision His engineering efforts are not centred on money although he is hired by a group of entrepreneurs who see profit in these drained land Jan combines his skills and artistry And the Fens enchant him so does the local woman whom he meets and begins to love Jan finds his place on earth in New Amsterdam which becomes New York and where he leads modest solitary life I liked Eliza who though she begins as a slave on tobacco fields is intelligent and makes her way in the New World This is a marvellous marvellous historical novel I literally was unable to put this novel down and it ll stay with me for a long time what else could a reader ask for
