Description
One 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)
