A tapestry of dreams
Blair, Jessica, 1923-2015
As heir to his father's woollen mill in the West Riding, Daniel Bullen is caught between duty and privilege. One day he will be a wealthy and respected man but in the meantime his autocratic father is determined to exert every ounce of authority over him that he can. Daniel takes a mistress and for a while is content with this measure of rebellion. Then, on a trip to a business contact in Lincolnshire, Daniel meets Susannah Charlesworth: pretty, accomplished, well-bred and sole heiress to the prosperous Stockdale Estate. As reckless as he is irresistible to women, Daniel sees a way to become twice as wealthy as his father ever was while still retaining as his lover the only woman ever to have touched his heart. The marriage Susannah enters into with such high hopes for the future soon becomes a joyless prison. Daniel controls every aspect of Susannah's life with his rigid, inflexible will, refusing her any contact with her beloved father and childhood home. He is confident nevertheless that the Charlesworth money will one day come to him through his wife. And when it does, Susannah's usefulness to him will be at an end. Can Susannah ever find the love and happiness she truly yearns for in this tapestry of dreams?
