Paisley, 1920. In the post-war decade of peace, uncomfortable new conflicts are looming. Women no longer take a back seat in the business world and Fiona MacDowall has made it clear that she intends to inherit her father’s furniture emporium. Her half-brother Alex, although born out of wedlock, has other ideas. But it’s Alex’s wife Rose who objects most. A businesswoman in her own right, she owns Harlequin, the town’s grandest and most successful dressmaker’s.
She is sure Fiona will stop at nothing to get what she wants. . .
