Continuing the story of the love-hate relationship between Clara Garland and Nat Grover, Greater Gains starts with Clara having been left a widow, pregnant with another man’s child. It seems as if things could not get worse—until her pretty and reckless youngest sister, Ellen, is harshly sentenced to deportation to the newly-discovered land of Australia, alongside many other convicts. And back in Norfolk, Clara becomes the victim of blackmail that puts her in the clutches of the wicked Nat Grover in more ways than one...Will her pure love for Prosper Mayes ever survive?
