NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLING author Jeffrey Archer-returns with a powerful tale of twins separated by fate and reunited by destiny.

In Hartford, Connecticut, in the late 1940s, a set of twins is parted at birth-not by accident. Nat Cartwright goes home with his parents, a schoolteacher and an insurance salesman, while his twin brother begins his days as Fletcher Davenport, son of a millionaire and his society wife.

During the 1950s and 1960s, the two brothers grow up apart, following similar paths that take them in different directions. Nat leaves college at the University of Connecticut to serve in Vietnam, then finishes school, earns his MBA, and becomes a successful currency dealer. Fletcher, meanwhile, graduates from Yale University with a bachelor's and a law degree, going on to distinguish himself as a criminal defense lawyer.

At various times in their lives, both men are confronted with challenges and obstacles, tragedy and betrayal, loss and hardship, before they both decide to run for governor, unaware they are brothers....

In the tradition of Jeffrey Archer's most popular books, Sons of Fortune is as much a chronicle of a nation in transition as it is the story of the making of these two men -and how they eventually discover the truth-and its tragic consequences.

Same as the other four books I have read. This was a good read right up to the last line with a good deal of suspense through out.

Jeffrey Archer is a great writer and I am never disappointed after reading his books.His stories of family sagas, plots and revenge make gripping reading.It is really difficult to stop reading until the end!! In this book I really found it amazing how he brought the two main characters together with such different lives..but that of course requires talent and that of course is Jeffrey Archer!!

Not as well written as other Jeffrey Archer books. I was disappointed in the style of writing in this very disjointed storyline.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book, right up to and including the very last word. Definitely recommend this book, it is not predictable. It is worth every minute and hour of your time that it takes to read it to the end.
