Set in Victorian Glasgow, this is a story of a woman who puts duty before passion - and makes an enemy of the only man she will ever love. 'In the tradition of Catherine Cookson.' Liverpool Post
Susan MacFarlane had only a few months with David Cameron, but in tht time he taught her the power of passionate love - its rewards and its punishments.
Then she returned to her duty: marriage to a man who could run the family's paper mill, the mill she loved and understood but could not have for herself.
Trapped in a loveless marriage with only her children to console her, her ambition and her ability thwarted by the conventions of her time, Susan seems destined to finish her life without ever knowing again the heady excitement of her brief time of freedom.
Then David Cameoron comes back to Glasgow. Rich now, ready to avenge the slights of his youth. And the implacable enemy of Susan's family. . .
