25 years after the original sensational publication of A Woman of Substance, the #1 bestselling author delivers a new blockbuster tale chronicling the lives of the Harte family—and Emma Harte herself

Barbara Taylor Bradford’s beloved character Emma Harte and her triumphant story turned A Woman of Substance into a literary classic. The saga of Emma Harte and her descendants also graced the pages of the bestselling novels Hold the Dream and To Be the Best. Now Bradford returns to the spellbinding Harte family with Emma’s Secret. The story begins with a dying woman imploring her granddaughter to find Emma Harte in London. Evan Hughes has no idea who Emma Harte is, but the lure of London beckons. Soon she finds herself thrust into the Hartes’ world. She meets Linnet, the heiress apparent. Tessa, her jealous sister. Gideon, the dashing heir to a family’s fortune. Paula, the matriarch. And even Emma Harte herself, whose secrets turn the story back to World War II and an unknown part of Emma’s life. Emma’s Secret vividly describes the worlds of the Harte holdings: fashion, newspapers, and hotels. It also brings to life the Hartes themselves—the loyalties, the betrayals, and the passions of a dynasty.
