As tensions within the family grow, Harriet’s refusal to be silenced could be the undoing of them all…

Harriet won’t stand by while her family’s inheritance slips through their fingers. Her uncle worked hard to build a stable business before he passed it to her husband William. But when her stepfather-in-law, Mr. Wetherby, presumes ownership of the company, Harriet fights to stand her ground…

William longs for a quiet life, but with a growing family and Harriet’s determination to succeed, he stretches himself beyond his means. When Mr. Wetherby refuses to help, only the intervention of William’s mother Mary keeps their dream of a better future in reach…

After a tragic twist of fate, Harriet fights for her family’s rights. Collaborating with Mr. Wetherby now seems impossible, and she and William must somehow carve out a living without him. But as tensions in the family business escalate, Harriet may have far more to worry about than pursuing her own ambitions…

When Time Runs Out is the third book in The Ambition & Destiny Series, a saga of historical fiction novels covering a seven-decade span.
