In the Morland Dynasty series, the majestic sweep of English history is richly and movingly portrayed through the fictional lives of the Morland family. It is 1807, and as armies march and counter-march across Europe, Lucy, trying to rebuild her life after the death of Captain Weston, receives an unexpected and disturbing offer of marriage from an army officer. James and Heloise are happy at Morland Place, except for the hostility of James’s daughter and heiress Fanny towards her stepmother. Fanny is eager to inherit more than just Morland Place, and visits her maternal grandfather in Manchester in the hope of persuading him to leave her his cotton mills. But for all her hard-headedness, she falls in love with the dashing but unscrupulous Lieutenant Hawker, and her determination to marry him threatens disaster.
