Picking up where his runaway bestseller Back Bay left off, William Martin returns to Boston to bring the history of Harvard University vividly to life.There are many Harvard legends. One of the oldest is the tale of how John Harvard's parents were brought together by none other than William Shakespeare, who then gave them a gift of an original manuscript upon the birth of their son. Now, Peter Fallon, the Harvard historian introduced in Back Bay, teams with other memorable characters from that novel and sets out to find those priceless pages that were thought to have been lost in the Harvard Hall fire of 1764. Mixing fact and fiction, blending the past and present, this riveting treasure hunt unveils the story of Harvard as it grows from a one-room schoolhouse to America's most famous university.
