The second novel in the Barforth saga, set in Yorkshire in the mid-19th century. The Barforths, wool-manufacturers and mill-owners, are in conflict with the old landed gentry. Their lives, full of love, hatred and struggle, interweave with Faith Aycliffe's adventurous spirit.
THREE SISTERS - HEIRS TO WEALTH, AMBITION AND LUST.
Left wealthy and independent by the death of their dictatorial father, the Barforth sisters chose very different paths to fulfill their desires and destinies in a changing world. Celia used her fragile, procelain like beauty to ensnare the man of her dreams, only to discover that she was a mere stepping stone in her husband's political career... the captivating and calculating Prudence waged a bitter battle against the society that would quell her intellectual nature... but it was the ravishing and independent Faith who was the true rebel. A woman of smoldering sensuality and undauntable courage, she dared to defy Victorian prudery to enter into an illicit affair with the only man who could match her free spirit.
