Peter Fallon, the hero of William Martin's bestselling novel Back Bay, has found evidence that a priceless treasure-an undiscovered Shakespeare play-is hidden somewhere in the venerable halls of Harvard University. An antiquarian who knows many of the school's carefully guarded secrets, Fallon understands the powerful implications of the discovery. But as he delves into the school's past-from witch hangings to the fires of the Civil War to the riotous 1960s-he learns that men and women have risked death, disgrace, and banishment in pursuit of this invaluable relic. And, as he uncovers rifts between generations, families, friends, and lovers, Fallon begins to understand something else: that finding this landmark manuscript is a matter of life and death.… (mer)

Harvard Yard is a follow-up to Back Bay, and another Boston-centered multi-generational family saga. In this book, the Wedges inherit the legacy of an unpublished Shakespeare manuscript, given clandestinely to Harvard when the colony had outlawed plays, and hidden by generations of conscience-driven Wedges not sure that Harvard was worthy of such a remarkable gift. As befitting an academic novel, the history is not quite as icky as in Cape Cod. Peter Fallon is also a little more middle-aged — a little more sensible. ( )

I really loved this book..couldn't put it down! If you're like me and you love New England and/or Colonial History then you'll love it, too! The history of Harvard, which is intertwined in the story is also very interesting! ( )

The history is interesting, especially the early history of Harvard. After the Revolution (the one in 1776, not 1968) it devolves into a sequence of vignettes, with too many cameos by famous people. The framing story, which aspires to be a suspense-thriller with a hunt for a priceless manuscript and murders and a love interest, is remarkable for its inability to create and maintain tension, either narrative or romantic. Its shortcomings are partly made up by the competent writing and the wealth of details. It's likeable enough, I guess.

A little slow to start, but very intriguing. A basic understanding of American history and an appreciation for culture and antiquities makes this book much more enjoyable. ( )

The unexpected twists and turns through history will keep readers guessing and the pages turning.

Martin spins through 300 years of American history—from the Salem witch trials and the Boston Tea Party to the Civil War and up to the radical late 1960s—telling a tale of Harvard the institution growing from a tiny establishment under beastly first master Nathaniel Eaton to become America's premier university. Fallon's search takes a back seat to the historical material, but the novel provides good entertainment and copious Crimson lore.

Rollicking historical that's certain to get the top shelf at the Harvard Co-Op.
