Summary

From number-one New York Times best-selling author Barbara Taylor Bradford comes the first audiobook in a stunning new historical saga. 

Victorian England is a country of sharp divides between rich and poor, but James Lionel Falconer, who spends his days working at his father’s market stall, is determined to become a merchant prince. Even as a child, he is everything a self-made man should be: handsome, ambitious, charming, and brimming with self-confidence. 

James quickly rises through the ranks, proving himself both hardworking and trustworthy and catching the eye of Henry Malvern, head of the most prestigious shipping company in London. But when threats against his reputation - and his life - begin to emerge, James will have to prove he truly is the master of his fate.  

Through scandal and romance, tragedy and triumph, the Falconer and Malvern family’s lives intertwine in unexpected ways in this expansive and intricately detailed new audiobook filled with drama, intrigue, and Bradford's trademark cast of compelling characters.

Great beginnings

I love audiobooks in general, but especially this newest release from my favorite author. As well thought out and vivid as AWOS....Mrs Bradford has done it once again with her ability to create the scenes as though you were sitting right there beside the character and being privy to the conversations. The main character James, is a kind of person everyone would like to know better. I would like to know him better. To discover the man he is to become through Mrs. Bradford's eyes and words. Can't wait for the next book. Thank you Barbara Taylor Bradford .
