Ellen Gowan is a famous dress designer for ladies of high society and
one of the very few women in England who owns her own business. But her
life wasn¿t always one of such privilege. The only surviving
daughter of a Cambridge scholar-turned village minister and a beautiful
woman who was disowned by her family for marrying for love, Ellen had a
childhood plentiful in affection, if not in currency and dresses made
of fine silks.
Tragedy strikes on her thirteenth birthday, when her father dies suddenly, leaving Ellen and her mother penniless and dependent upon the kindness of her mother's estranged family. Life takes Ellen down various roads of opulence and depravity until she lands in the arms of the devlishly handsome Raoul de Valentin, whom she marries.
Just when Ellen realizes that she is with child, Raoul abandons her. Determined to survive, she begins her long climb to success, first by toiling at a dress factory, then opening up her own salon in the fashionable Battle Square. Years pass, and Ellen has evolved into Madame Gowan, dress maker to royalty and the Great Six Hundred. All is truly well, until the day Raoul de Valentin unexpectedly arrives at her doorstep once more, threatening to destroy all that she has achieved.
