Description

The gripping third novel in the classic Stevenson family saga from epic master Malcolm Macdonald

After a dizzying rise filled with ambition and passion, the Stevensons are now one of the richest families in the world. John, recalling his lowly past, wants his children to obey to the letter and never put a foot wrong. But his four eldest children, Young John, Winifred, Caspar, and Abigail, have ideas of their own. As they test the temptations of the adult world, the lure of profit and pleasure brings the risk of disaster and disgrace, and the tensions threaten to pull the family apart...

The third novel in the classic Stevenson family saga, Sons of Fortune is the epic story of a Victorian family at the height of wealth and power, and the choices and chances that pose the ultimate risk to their happiness and bond.
