From Sunday Times bestseller Nadine Dorries – the first in a tremendous new six-book series.
This tale of two families linked by one historic secret and the lies that hide it, but separated by hatred and a deadly rivalry, begins just after the Battle of Waterloo and spans the great heyday of the cotton industry in Lancashire.
Here two boys are growing up in the mill town of Bellfont, unaware of the secret legacy which will come to haunt their lives, turn them into bitter enemies and fuel the rise of two dangerously strong women from different ends of the social spectrum. This spectacular novel marks an ambitious and exciting departure for one of our most brilliant storytellers.
