(2006)
A novel by

 
 
Set against the harsh and gritty background in the Industrial Revolution, this is a story of poverty and star-crossed love, of sexual exploitation and deceit, of greed, murder and revenge. Luther Dearne has made a fortune wheeling and dealing with the wealthy ironmasters of South Riding - and by cheating the Swedish shippers who bring their iron to sell in England. Rich, powerful and apparently above the law, he has everything his heart desires - except children. When one day a woman turns up in the tavern with an orphaned little girl for sale, Luther does not hesitate, he buys her. Little does he know what he has done for this child, Lissie, with her great beauty and mysterious origins, whom his wife hates at first sight, will prove to be both his greatest joy, his deepest heartache and eventually his undoing.
