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?

Good historically based fiction with short chapters which makes for easy read.However it does make the book bigger than it needs to be with much unused paper!
