9780061094408: Power of a Woman

No Matter How Much a Woman Has,
There's Always too Much to Lose

Stephanie Jardine is at the apex of her career and life running the American branch of Jardine's, the prestigious Crown Jewellers of London. A young widow, she has three grown sons and one very precious teenage daughter, Chloe. Then one day, an unexpected act of violence committed by a stranger on the other side of the world plunges Stevie into turmoil and despair.

To save her injured daughter's life and ensure her future, Stevie must go back to her own past and confront a relationship that has only brought her heartbreak. As she battles for her daughter, Stevie comes to understand how fragile life is and how it can be forever changed by others when least expected.

A moving novel about family secrets, betrayal, and redemption, Power of a Woman is the story of an innocent victim of a stranger's vengeance, who manages to triumph through her own inner power as a woman.

About the Author:

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.

From AudioFile:

At 47, Stevie Jardine is a widow, mother of four, and the CEO of one of London's most illustrious jewelry empires. She finds fulfillment from her career, friends, and family, but her happiness is marred by a dark secret. When a random act of violence leaves her beloved daughter in a coma, Stevie must put aside her pride and revisit a painful past. Janet McTeer's performance sensitively explores family mysteries, betrayals, and loyalties. Her voice is whispery and intimate, as if sharing delicious secrets with listeners, leading them into a world of elegant gems, haute couture, and remarkable women. Barbara Taylor Bradford's compassion and understanding of human nature infuse her work with just the right touches of conflict, love, and redemption to satisfy her many fans.
