London, 1859. By the time Dora Damage discovers that her husband Peter has arthritis in his hands, it is too late - their book-binding business is in huge debt and the family is on the brink of entering the poorhouse.
But Dora proves that she is more than just a housewife and mother.
She resolves to rescue her family at any price and finds herself irrevocably entangled in a web of sex, money, deceit and the law.
