‘Few novelists are as consummate as Barbara Taylor Bradford at keeping the reader turning the page. She is one of the world’s best at spinning yarns’ Guardian

From the Back Cover:

In 1905 a young kitchen maid leaves Fairly Hall. Emma Harte is sixteen, single and pregnant. By 1968 she is one of the richest women in the world, ruler of a business empire stretching from Yorkshire to the glittering cities of America and the rugged vastness of Australia.

Emma Harte is 'A Women of Substance'. But what is the price she has paid?

A magnificent dynastic saga, as impossible to switch off as it is to forget.

"A spellbinding family saga...a tour de force"
ANNABEL
