No. 1 Chesterfield Square
"Max Chambers was born into servitude on a grand Devonshire estate at the turn of the twentieth century and there he might have remained, trapped by the limitations of class, money and history. Yet, he is a man of ambition and determination - derived from an inherent sense of injustice and a burning desire for personal freedom. The Gordon family - owners of the estate - symbolise, for Max, the worst kind of oppression and snobbery, but their worlds are inextricably linked, and, as he fights to break free and make his way in the world, the Gordon shadow is an ever present reminder of his humble beginnings. As Max's fortunes and position are elevated beyond his wildest imagination, his nemesis, the tenth Earl William Gordon, seems hellbent on destroying his dream. However, as with all families, untold secrets and hidden histories lie just beneath the surface. Secrets that, once discovered, will have seismic repercussions."--www.amazon.com.
