An Unfolding Soul

A Tale of Bath

The city of Bath is unique. Much of it built during the reigns of four kings called George over a period of only one hundred years. Its three thousand ornate Georgian buildings form the heart of one of the most complete and beautiful cities in the world. But for how much longer?

As the 1960’s unfolded, great social upheaval was matched by potential destruction from developers and change in the city. Perhaps, even more devastating than the bombs of the Luftwaffe twenty years earlier.

‘Another enthralling chapter in this tale of Bath, during a period of dramatic change and development.’

Roger Palmer

‘As a Bathonian born and bred, I enjoyed reading these clever novels, particularly the historical detail of Bath – so successfully and accurately portrayed.’

Linda Turner

“Westcott has done it again, masterfully capturing the essence of magnificent Bath”

Jenny Lippett

“Westcott burnishes his well won reputation as the  Grand Master of intrigue with this much anticipated sequel to acclaimed Go Swift and Far ; nothing less than brilliant as with the deft hand of an ancient god  he manoeuvres  the fate of the great and  less than good of Bath across the chess board of life. Check mate; but who wins …..”

Patrick McCloy

“Just finished reading your second book An Unfolding Soul which I have enjoyed as much as your first. As a Bathonian of 77 years I find it so scary and truthful as we currently experience The Third Destruction of Bath.”
