The Ties That Bind

When Emma Robinson falls in love with a man far above her own station in life, there are harsh consequences. She discovers that she is carrying Paul Greenslade's child, and he disappears, rather than marry a common shop-girl.

In order to save her reputation and family name, Emma is forced to marry the brutish Dick Gillows, learning the hard way that a jealous husband is a violent one. After her tyrannical father's death, and discovering that her marriage to Dick was nothing more than a business transaction in return for the family shop, Emma realises that she has to make a life for herself and her son, James.

She begins with a secret partnership in a local clothes shop, and embarks on a mission to find her father's secret fortune before her husband does. Can Emma ultimately release herself from the ties that bind her and find out who she really is?
