Overview

As England basks in the golden years of Queen Victoria's reign, the Easter empire that began half a decade before with Nan Easter's newspaper walk, is growing from strength to strength. But then tragedy strikes, threatening to take all of Nan's hard-earned achievements away.

Nan's son and heir, John, is killed an accident, so Nan has to entrust the vital task of running the business to someone else within the family. The natural choice is John's daughter, Caroline. Although still young, Caroline is spirited and forthright, brimming with new ideas for A. Easter and Sons - the most important being the introduction of books onto their newspaper stalls.

But although Caroline proves to be as brilliant a businesswoman as Nan Easter herself, her weak-willed and ambitious cousin Edward, envious of her success and aghast at the thought that a girl should be managing things, becomes involved in a plot to sow the seeds of her downfall. However, Caroline, a born fighter, is prepared to meet this unexpected challenge head-on...

Beryl Kingston was born in London in 1931 and was 8 years old when WWII began. She remained in London for the first four months of the blitz until her road was bombed and her house was uninhabitable. She has been a writer since she was seven when she started producing poetry which, according to her, was very, very bad. She taught English from 1952 to 1985 before embarking on a career as a prolific, full-time writer.

Beryl Kingston's first book was published in 1985 and was an instant bestseller. From then on she wrote a bestseller every year for the next 14 years, ranging from family sagas to modern stories and historical novels, including novels about WWI and WWII. She reached the top payment level for public lending right with her 4th book and passed the million mark in sales with book number 12. She has also written plays for the children, stories for various magazines and a novella about a conceited cat. She won the 2014 Blake Society Tithe Grant Award.

Beryl Kingston was married for 54 years, had three children and five grandchildren and now has five great-grandchildren, who are the apples of her eye.
