Barbara Taylor Bradford was born in Leeds, Yorkshire, and was a reporter for the Yorkshire Evening Post at sixteen. By the age of twenty she had graduated to London's Fleet Street as both an editor and columnist.
In 1979, she wrote her first novel, A Woman of Substance, and that enduring bestseller was followed by 12 others: Voice of the Heart, Hold the Dream, Act of Will, To Be the Best, The Women in His Life, Remember, Angel, Everything to Gain, Dangerous to Know, Love in Another Town, Her Own Rules and A Secret Affair.
Of these titles, ten have been made into television miniseries or are currently in production. Her novels have sold more than 56 million copies worldwide in more than 88 countries and 38 languages. Barbara Taylor Bradford lives in New York City and Connecticut with her husband, film producer Robert Bradford.
Kate Mulgrew has performed on stage in Shaw, Shakespeare, and Tennessee Williams; she has starred in such films as A Stranger is Watching and Round Numbers; she has also done considerable work on television.From AudioFile:
Mallory Keswick's husband, Andrew, their 5-year-old twins, and her dog are killed in a senseless act of random violence. Kate Mulgrew narrates the story of Mallory's overwhelming loss in a refined manner, her voice quaking with devastation and tears. Her sense of grief and guilt are deftly portrayed. The twins are wonderfully characterized in flashbacks as charming children filled with mischief. When Mallory finds seventeenth-century diaries at Pilgrim's Glen, Andrew's family home, they provide a renewed interest in life that leads to a satisfying ending. Although well done, this audio love story is flawed by a disconcerting echo, meant to enhance the flashbacks. G.D.W. © AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
