9780006499589: A Secret Affair

In her latest eagerly anticipated novel, the inimitable Barbara Taylor Bradford has once again created an intimate an unforgettable story, A Secret Affair

At thirty-three Bill Fitzgerald, acclaimed American television foreign correspondent, is war weary and exhausted after a long stint in Bosnia. In late November of 1995 he travels to Venice to meet an old friend, Francis Xavier Peterson

While at the bar of the Gritti Palace Hotel on the Grand Canal with Frankie, Bill is struck by the dark beauty of a young woman seated alone, Unhappily married Vanessa Stewart is a twenty-seven-year-old glass designer from New York. The three expatriates decide that as Americans in Venice, they should celebrate Thanksgiving dinner together. That evening begins an illicit though fateful love affair.

When it is time to leave Venice, Bill plans a rendevous with Vanessa - they will meet in New York in December for a Christmas lunch with his daughter and mother. After an idyllic time spent together, they are both completely committed and madly in love. But they can only hope for a taste of joy from each other - a series of planned rendevous.

In A Secret Affair, Barbara Taylor once again touches on subjects that will stir the hearts and minds of her readers - unconditional love and devotion, loyalty, and loss.

The story of an illicit affair that plunges into mystery when one of the lovers fails to appear for an assignation, this new work is being published in the same small gift format as last season's Bradford best seller, Love in Another Town.
