This adaptation of the beloved French novel by Emile Zola is a rags to riches story of a young woman seduced by the dangerous charms of the modern world. Set against the Victorian splendor of a British department store, "The Paradise" follows Denise Lovett who lands a job as a shop girl and finds herself facing a future filled with never-before-imagined opportunities. Moray forges ahead with his plans to buy up the other shops on the street, reluctantly taking on a partner, while Katherine meddles with his efforts in an attempt to get his attention. Some light is shed on Jonas' mysterious past and Denise learns a lesson when her latest idea doesn't go as planned.
