But industry is hitting its stride, and as the railways begin to open across the country

Overview

Queen Victoria is crowned, and England is at peace, but 1838 isn't a good year to be a coachman, not even when you're good looking and ambitious. George Davenport travels to London with his bride Lucy, determined to make the most of his skill in driving a four-in-hand of horses. But industry is hitting its stride, and as the railways begin to open across the country they threaten to kill off the work he loves.

George finds employment with William Chaplin, the "Napoleon of coaching," but he discovers that the boss's daughter has designs on him that have nothing to do with his driving.
