A VICTORIAN WORLD-SEETHING WITH INTRIGUE, EXPLODING WITH PASSION. At a time when fabulous fortunes could be made through the will of a strong man or the wiles of a beautiful woman, the driving ambitions of the Stevensons finally bring them into the center of dazzling power and position. John Stevenson's genius as a builder and Nora's clear-eyed brilliant cunning promise to make them one of England's richest families. Children are born to them, luxuries accrue, and their deep love endures. But their fate becomes more and more entwined with that of their friends the Thorntons-repressed and pious Arabella, secretive, sex-obsessed Walter-as whispers of scandal and disgrace threaten to bring them all to ruin.
