This is another paragraph Product Description: From the bestselling author of Tuppenny Times and Fourpenny Flyer As England basked in the golden years of Queen Victoria's reign, the Easter empire, begun half a decade back with Nan Easter's newspaper walk, is growing from strength to strength. But then tragedy strikes, threatening to take all of Nan's hard-earned achievements away. For John, Nan's son and heir, is killed in an accident, and so Nan has to entrust the vital task of running the business to someone else within the family. The natural choice is John's daughter, Caroline. Although still young, Caroline is spirited and forthright, brimming with new ideas for A. Easter and Sons - the most important being the introduction of books onto their newspaper stalls. But although Caroline proves to be as brilliant a business woman as Nan Easter herself, her weak-willed and ambitious cousin Edward, envious of her success and aghast at the thought that a girl should be managing things, allows himself to become involved in a plot to cause her downfall. He thus sows the seeds of a scandal which not only threatens Caroline's idyllic marriage but the future of the Easter empire itself. However, Caroline, a born fighter, is prepared to meet this unexpected challenge head-on.
