NOTHING COULD STOP THE POLREATH WOMEN IN THEIR DRIVE FOR THE ULTIMATE REWARD...
ELIZABETH, the matriarch - her love for Lord John Polreath is surpassed only by her fierce determination to build a mighty shipping empire and make the Polreath clan the most powerful in England.
PATIENCE, the scapegrace - she becomes the toast and the scandal of New York and London, and the despair of the family, until she discovers a strange redemption.
HOPE, the rebel - bearing her dead stepbrother's child, she alone can save the Polreath heritage.
Set in England and America in the nineteenth century, embracing the Civil War, the rise of a great mercantile fortune and the emergence of women as a force in the world, here is a saga novel in the grand tradition of R.F. Delderfield's GOD IS AN ENGLISHMAN.
