Perfect for fans of Dilly Court and Rosie Goodwin, this is the powerful next instalment of The Cordwainers, a series from bestselling author Iris Gower.
“The best book I’ve read in a long time…”—Reader review
Arian - spirited and unconventional – had always shocked the residents of World's End with her wild behaviour. As she begins to make a name for herself in the leather and shoemaking trade, she is overjoyed when the intriguing and charismatic Calvin Temple decides to back her. Yet this backing proves disastrous when her venture with a French company fails and it looks as though all their money will be lost.
When Arian sets out for France in desperation to try to salvage their investment, she falls foul of the law and is given a grim alternative to prison - a loveless marriage with a man she despises.
Will she ever be able to find fulfilment with the man she loves, or will she be forced to face a life sentence of unhappiness?
Arian is the fourth in Iris Gower’s The Cordwainers series. The story continues in Sea Mistress.
