Summary

All three historical romance novels in Simone Beaudelaire's 'The Victorians' series, now available in one volume!
 
Keeping Katerina: The 1840s is a time of increasing social awareness, particularly for progressive cotton mill owner Adrian Bennett and his son Christopher. But one social issue Christopher has never considered much is violence against women. A chance encounter with Katerina Valentino changes everything, as Christopher becomes entranced by the delicate, dark-haired beauty. But is Christopher's tender affection enough to help Katerina heal her broken spirit?
 
Devin's Dilemma: Brighton, England, 1856. For young solicitor Devin Bennett, building his career is his foremost goal. The last thing he expects is Harry: an intense, intelligent and interesting girl Devin can't stop dreaming about. But Harry is hiding something from him, something that might tear them apart and whisk her off to the far side of the world. From the sea-swept beauty of Brighton to exotic Bombay, the Bennett family saga continues in another tale of love beyond the limits of injustice.
 
Colin's Conundrum: Colin Butler is in deep trouble. Years of hard work and frugal living have finally failed, leaving his estate on the brink of disaster. A last-ditch effort to stay out of prison finds him walking the long road to London. Meanwhile, Daisy Grainger - an innkeeper’s daughter in a small town - is looking for a comfortable life away from the man her father has been trying to convince her to marry. When the two meet, instant attraction turns to complications, as a series of misunderstandings leaves the couple married, consummated and trapped. Can Colin and Daisy work together to bring hope in the darkest of situations, or will the unlikely couple meet a rocky end?

The book is broken up into four parts, Mrs Baines, Constance, Sophia and What Life Is. The first section, "Mrs Baines" details the adolescence of both Sophia and Constance, and their life in their father's shop and house. The father is ill and bedridden, and the main adult in their life is Mrs Baines, their mother. Sophia eventually elopes with a travelling salesman, and Constance marries Mr Povey, who works in the shop.
