The Lorimer Line
Volume One of the dramatic saga of the Lorimer Family The Lorimers are one of the richest and most powerful Bristol families...When Margaret Lorimer, daughter of the autocratic chairman of Lorimer's Bank, asks her father if she can marry a comparatively humble young Scot, he does not put up the resistance she was expecting. Indeed, John Junius Lorimer has plans for David Gregson which involve a dramatic change in his circumstances. But John Junius's plans are more complicated, and more risky, than they seem on the surface. The Lorimer Line is the enthralling first volume in the sequence which chronicles the lives and fortunes of the Lorimer family from the 1870s to the 1940s.
