The enthralling sequel to Barbara Taylor Bradford’s universally loved novels, A Woman of Substance and Hold The Dream. Set in Yorkshire, Hong Kong and America, this remarkable contemporary novel continues the story of an unorthodox and endlessly fascinating family. As the spirit of Emma Harte lives on in her granddaughter, Paula O’Neill, an engrossing drama is played out in the glamorous arena of the wealthy and privileged, underscored by a cut-throat world of jealousy and treachery.
Emma Harte was the heroine of Barbara Taylor Bradford’s multi-million copy bestseller, A Woman of Substance. Now she is eighty years old and ready to hand over the reins of the vast business empire she has created.

Anna Karenina is one of the most loved and memorable heroines of literature. Her overwhelming charm dominates a novel of unparalleled richness and density.

North and South depicts a young woman discovering herself, in a nuanced portrayal of what divides people, and what brings them together.
