Master of His Fate
A House of Falconer Novel
Author: Barbara Taylor Bradford
Scandal and romance, tragedy and triumph, and all the drama of the Victorian era. This is the story of the Falconer family—an epic and unforgettable historical saga from #1 New York Times bestselling author Barbara Taylor Bradford.
Victorian England is a country of sharp divides between rich and poor, but James Lionel Falconer, who spends his days working at his father’s market stall, is determined to become a merchant prince. Even as a child, he is everything a self-made man should be: handsome, ambitious, charming, and brimming with self-confidence.
James quickly rises through the ranks, proving himself both hardworking and trustworthy, and catching the eye of Henry Malvern, head of the most prestigious shipping company in London. But when threats against his reputation—and his life—begin to emerge, James will have to prove that he truly is the master of his fate.
