Emma's Secret by Barbara Taylor Bradford is a rare super sequel that lives up to all the hype. If you are a fan of Bradford's books, you will be so satisfied with getting a bonus glimpse at the Harte and O'Neil families from A Woman of Substance. If you are a first-time reader of Barbara's, this isn't a bad book to begin with, though you might want to get familiar with this series by reading the earlier 3 books, or watching the DVD's of the movies. Thanks for bringing back Emma!

Why did you stoop to sleeze, Barbara?

This is a good follow-up to the first three books, but the steamy sex scene does not need to be so graphic and completely descriptive! Did Ms. Bradford intend to write a 'how-to' book? This style of writing doesn't even fit her style throughout the rest of the book. ...
This is a good follow-up to the first three books, but the steamy sex scene does not need to be so graphic and completely descriptive! Did Ms. Bradford intend to write a 'how-to' book? This style of writing doesn't even fit her style throughout the rest of the book. It all but glares from the pages and doesn't really help the story. We have so much blatant sex hitting us in the face from all directions, all the time, couldn't we have expected better writing throughout this book, in the style of the original trilogy from this author? Having expressed this opinion, I must add that I recommend the reading of this book for all those Emma Harte fans out there.

    Another Page Turner!!!

    Barbara Taylor Bradford has done it again. This is another page turner in the lives of Emma Harte's heirs. The book is truly amazing. I loved the book. Evan is a great add as a new character. Emma's great-granchildren are just as amazing as her grandchildren. I love this book just like the other three. I strongly recommend this book to anyone.

    more from this reviewer

    Deeply fascinating book about three families united together through generations. The characters where all breath taking and full of life and love for each other. Generations of keeping the families together and their great achievements.

    Just happened to pick up this book by accident, and loved every minute of reading the book. I was fascinated by the story unfolding about three families united by friendship and love. Emma's Secret is wonderful and endearing and still full of surprises. The characters are beautifully depicted and the generations of struggle to make their world successful is mind-boggling. The story is full of passion and yet full of intrigue to keep any reader from never wanting to put the book down. I did not read Barbara Taylor Bradford's, "A Woman of Substance". I will go out and see if it is still available to read. I am looking forward to reading her next book "Unexpected Blessings", depicting a further study of this family and their struggles. I read the excerpt and I am longing to get my hands on this book as soon as possible. A must read to be sure!<BR/>I give "Emma's Secret" a thumbs up in all the rating categories.<BR/><BR/>Cherry Blossom

    Emma's Secret Satisfies

    The trilogy of bestsellers that began with A Woman of Substance is tough to equal. Unless, of course you are Barbara Taylor Bradford, bestselling novellist and the First Lady of Fiction. Fans and readers may argue over wheter or not it was a good idea for Mrs. Bradford to bring back the legendary Emma Harte for another chapter in the saga. But if there existed any concern, they needn't have worried. Emma Harte is not brought back from the dead, but rather through the pages of her hidden diaries, discovered by her great grandchildren. The entire middle chapters of the book give us new insight on Emma and her life during the Second Wolrd War. It is almost like you could stick these pages in the middle of A Woman if Substance, making that classic novel even more enjoyable. But Emma's Secret is really about Paula O'Neil (Emma's favorite Grandchild) and her children who now run the Harte family empire. These characters are more modern that the earlier generations, but they also fit into the modern day storyline. Readers who have not read the earlier books in this series will still enjoy Emm'a Secret. There is enough background description to satisfy those unfamiliar. However, this new book will be most appreciated by those who have grown up admiring Emma Harte for nearly three decades.
