Inhaltsangabe: RomanceLarge Print EditionA reliable Cookson production. Kirkus ReviewsA wealthy tradesmans attempt to climb beyond his station in life reaps tragic consequences for his family when Samuel Fairbrother decides that his new wealth deserve a more imposing residence. His new thirty-four-room mansion cannot buy him the gentlemanly status he craves, and a clash of wills ensues between the master of the house and Maitland, the butler. The Upstart is a glowing example of Cooksons ability to capture the conflict of class in the society of late 19th-century England.
From the Inside Flap: Suddenly risen to power and influence, Samuel Fairbrother, manufacturer and retailer of boots, shoes and clogs, decided that his new station in life deserved a more imposing residence. Accordingly he bought himself a thirty-four-roomed mansion situated on the outskirts of Fellburn. With the house came the butler, Maitland, who at once made plain his belief that Samuel, far from the gentleman his predecessor had been, was no more than an upstart.
So began a clash of wills between master and man, at which Samuel Fairbrother discovered he was at a distinct disadvantage, for Maitland was well skilled in the art of maintaining his indispensability. Fairbrother, for his part, was only too aware that he dare not dispence with Maitland's services. And so an uneasy truce was declared between them.
As the years went by and the century turned, Samuel Fairbrother saw his children, one by one, leave the big house to make lives for their own--all except his eldest daughter Janet who, by means of a legacy, was enabled to shape the destiny of her father's scattered family and effect the reconciliation that he thought was impossible.
