    Dombey and Son

    by Charles Dickens

    Book Description

    Hard-working London merchant Paul Dombey believes the only relationships worth having are business ones. Proud and heartless, he pins all his hopes for the future of his shipping firm on his fragile son Paul. But he cruelly neglects his devoted daughter Florence, and prevents her from marrying the man she loves, believing his occupation as a clerk too lowly for his only daughter. It is only when the firm faces ruin and Dombey's second marriage ends in disaster that Florence may finally be valued. In a world where profit is placed above kindness, will she be able to save her father from his desolate fate?
