Master of his fate

Bradford, Barbara Taylor, author

London 1884: Queen Victoria is Empress of India and Britain at its peak of worldwide power. James Falconer, known as Jimmy, is a barrow boy working for his father on the stalls in the Malvern Market. Alexis Malvern is an only child, raised by her father, Henry, who has built a real estate empire in London and a successful trading business in Le Havre. Trained by her father and heir to his businesses, Alexis has no interest in marrying. But when James Falconer approaches her father for a job, hungry to be part of the booming world of trade, she finally meets a man with an ambition and vision that matches hers. As the stakes rise, tragedy and betrayal threaten the company - and risk all James and Alexis dream of. Drawn inexorably together, will these two very different people overcome the barriers of class and age to unite and form a new dynasty of their own?
