Product Details


This rags-to-riches saga of a London East Ender who learns economics at a humble vegetable stand and later founds a huge department store spent 19 weeks on PW 's bestseller list. (May)

YA-- A coming-of-age story set in London's East End at the turn of the century. Charlie Trumper idolizes his grandfather, who sells fruits and vegetables from a barrow. He hopes to follow in the man's footsteps and eventually own a big, grand shop. However, World War I interrupts his plans. He learns the value of friendship during the war, but also makes an enemy of Guy Trentham who, with his mother, spends his life seeking revenge and trying to destroy Charlie's dreams. Family intrigue, corporate mergers, romance, villains, and heroes all intertwine to make a fast-moving tale, punctuated with history, mystery, and a refreshing ending in which the good guy wins. --Katherine Fitch, Thomas Jefferson Sci-Tech, Fairfax County, VA
