Description
Determined to rise above all that she has ever known, a young and impoverished Emma Harte embarks on a journey first of survival, then of unimaginable achievement. Driven to succeed, the iron-willed Emma parlays a small shop into the world¿s greatest department store and an international business empire: Harte Enterprises. Unhappily married twice, loving only the one man she can never marry, personal happiness eludes her. Harte Enterprises, the realization of her grand dreams, is her all: her heart, her soul, her life. When those closest to her threaten to destroy her empire through their greed and envy, Emma brilliantly outwits her enemies. She wreaks her devastating revenge on those who would betray her in a way only she knows how. Drawing us into the mesmerizing life of a remarkable woman who dared to seize a dream and was willing to pay any price to make it come true, Barbara Taylor Bradford¿s deeply involving novel is a celebration of an indomitable spirit.

display_descriptionOne of the top-ten bestselling novels ever written. "An extravagant, absorbing novel of love, courage, ambition, war, death and passion." —The New York Times

Barbara Taylor Bradford's The Emma Harte Saga begins with this record-shattering New York Times bestseller that traces Emma Harte's legacy through multiple generations of indomitable women.

From the servants' quarters of a manor house on the brooding Yorkshire moors to the helm of a profitable international business, Emma Harte's life is a sweeping saga of unbreakable spirit and resolve. Rising from abject poverty to glittering wealth at the upper echelons of society, there is only one man the indomitable Emma cannot have—and only one she yearns for. The novel was also the subject of a popular 1984 miniseries starring Jenny Seagrove and Deborah Kerr.

"A long, satisfying novel of money, power, passion and revenge set against the sweep of 20th century history." —Los Angeles Times

"A wonderfully entertaining novel." —The Denver Post

"A mighty saga. Little has been so riveting since Gone with the Wind." —Manchester Evening News

"Tailor-made for fans of McCullough's Thornbirds." —Publishers Weekly

"The storyteller of substance." —The Times (London)
