Klappentext

As heir to his father's woollen mill in the West Riding, Daniel Bullen is caught between duty and privilege. One day he will be a wealthy and respected man - but in the meantime his autocratic father is determined to exert every ounce of authority over him that he can. Daniel takes a mistress and for a while is content with this measure of rebellion.

Then, on a trip to a business contact in Lincolnshire, Daniel meets Susannah Charlesworth: pretty, accomplished, well-bred - and she is sole heiress to the prosperous Stockdale Estate. As reckless as he is irresistible to women, Daniel sees a way to become twice as wealthy as his father ever was - while still retaining as his lover the only woman ever to have touched his heart.

The marriage Susannah enters into with such high hopes for the future soon becomes a joyless prison. Daniel controls every aspect of Susannah's life with his rigid, inflexible will, refusing her any contact with her beloved father and childhood home. He is confident nevertheless that the Charlesworth money will one day come to him through his wife. And when it does, Susannah's usefulness to him will be at an end . . .

Can Susannah ever find the love and happiness she truly yearns for in this tapestry of dreams?



Zusammenfassung

The year is 1850, and Susannah Charlesworth loves the estate and open air life of the North Lincolnshire Wolds. She stands to become a very rich woman too - inheriting the estate, as well as her father's and uncle's wealth one day. But then she meets the dashing Daniel Bullen and Susannah's life is about to change forever.

As the eldest son, Daniel will take over his father's mill. He sees it as providing for a lifestyle he wants to pursue, but in order to avoid jeopardising the fortune that awaits him, Daniel must be careful how he conducts himself . . . and a marriage to Susannah will ensure that he becomes a very rich man indeed.

Whilst their marriage, and the children Susannah bears, ensures that their union is a happy one at first, Susannah soon begins to realise that there is more to Daniel Bullen than she thought - and that she hasn't married the man of her dreams. When Susannah's father dies, Daniel learns that the huge wealth that he thought he would amass has gone to Susannah's uncle. The fragile bonds between them are broken.

To find inner peace and save the family business, Susannah realises that she and her children must leave Daniel's cruel clutches. . . But can Susannah ever find happiness in this tapestry of dreams . . . ?
