Summary

One story.

Four heroes.

Oliver Bailey - a mill owner who is looking for investment from the ton but certainly isn't looking for a wife.

Baron Johnson - used appallingly by the young woman he's deeply in love with.

Captain Peterson - a successful ship's captain who has at least one girl in every port.

Mr. Lucas - a business rival to Oliver Bailey who has an ulterior motive no one else is aware of.

Four stories intertwined in a way none could foresee. Their lives will never be the same.

Undecided and a bit Confused.

The narrator's accents were all over the place and sometimes the English were speaking bad Scottish and likewise for the Scots. It was interesting, if not confusing.
The story was much like the narrator, interesting, but confusing. Delaying tactics were used to lengthen the tale, with one being repeated in the second act. The story wasn't cohesive, it jumped all over the place, making you wonder how you got to a certain point. None of the many characters had an depth, but faded in an out. The story had little to do with London society, more about Mills and Industry. It was interesting that all the Heroines, except one were Earl's daughters. Maybe this was because rich investors were needed, nobody was poor.
Like the whole experience, I don't know what to think, but I did make it to the end. The one true point is the behaviour of the ladies, had nothings to do with time the story was set in. Totally fanciful and unbelievable.

Male reader was odd

This isn’t my favorite Audrey Harrison novel. It was okay...but the male reader put me off. He wasn’t bad, it was just that the protagonist was a woman.

Had me immersed in their lives

Between the strong women characters & Mr. MacKenzie immersing us into these lives in England & ultimately Scotland, I thoroughly enjoyed my time with them.
