Everything seems possible in the England of 1833, where the Stephensons are planning the greatest engineering scheme ever undertaken: to drive a line all the way form Liverpool to London! But the first flush of Railway Fever brings suffering for the Morland brothers. Banished from Morland Place, Benedict's situation seems hopeless - feeling the loneliness of life as an engineer on the Leeds & Selby line, he doubts he will ever be wealthy enough to marry his new love Miss Fleetham. While Nicholas, Master of the family seat at last, is terrified by the news of Benedict's return to Yorkshire, posing not only a threat to his precious inheritance but a plan to bring the railway to York. Never will he allow the Devil's Horse to desecrate the Morland Estate. As the conflict between the brothers develops, it becomes more than a battle between the old ways and the new. Before long the past actions of both return to haunt them: for Benedict, the sad acknowledgment of his errors marks a step towards maturity: but for Nicholas, surrounded by the horrors of his own mind's making, it is a spiralling descent into a living hell.
