barbara taylor bradford master of his fate competition

Master of His Fate is the brand new book from worldwide bestselling author Barbara Taylor Bradford, and the start of an unforgettable new series set in Victorian England. To celebrate its publication, we’re giving one lucky gransnetter the chance to win a Fortnum & Mason hamper full of luxury treats worth £100, and a copy of Master of His Fate. Five runners-up will also receive a copy of the book.

It’s 1884 in London: Queen Victoria is Empress of India, and Britain is at its peak of worldwide power. James Falconer works as a barrow boy in a flourishing London market owned by Henry Malvern. But James hungers for more. Turning away from family tradition, he dreams of building an empire of stores like Fortnum & Mason, and believes that Henry, along with his daughter and heir Alexis, could offer him a way to climb beyond his beginnings.

But tragedy and betrayal threaten the dreams of both James and Alexis – and jeopardise everything they hold dear.
