A New York Times Bestseller
A Book of the Month Club Alternate Selection
A Literary Guild Main SelectionThe legendary Emma Harte, heroine of A Woman of Substance, returns in Emma’s Secret, a novel that showcases the storytelling power of Barbara Taylor Bradford. Paula O’Neill, beloved granddaughter of the legendary Emma Harte and the guardian of her vast business empire, believes that everything Emma left to the family is secure. Beneath the surface, however, sibling rivalry and discontent flare. Her daughters, Linnet and Tessa, are as different as they can be, and one of them desperately wants the empire to be hers. Into this volatile mix walks Evan Hughes, a young American fashion designer looking for Emma Harte. But Emma has been dead for thirty years, and Evan bears an uncanny resemblance to Paula O’Neill. Troubled by Evan’s presence, Paula turns to her grandmother’s recently discovered wartime diaries to find the truth, and Emma comes vividly back to life . . .About the author: For three years in a row, the London Daily Mail ranked her as #1 on the list of highest-earning British women (excluding Queen Elizabeth). In February 1998, the upscale British glossy Harper’s & Queen, afforded her the same distinction. Barbara Taylor Bradford has been one of the world’s most cherished storytellers, selling more than 60 million books in 39 languages in 89 countries. Barbara Taylor Bradford lives in New York City with her husband, producer Robert Bradford.
