Bestselling author Barbara Taylor Bradford brings her Harte family saga to a close in this engrossing finale, which not only leaves the reader wanting more but -- shhh! -- leaves the door open for still another chapter.
After 25 years, passions, revenge, envy, and unbridled ambition are still taking their toll on the Harte family, this time on Emma Harte's great-grandchildren. There's Linnet O'Neill and Evan Hughes, both with dreams of revitalizing Harte's, the famous British department store; and Tessa, Linnet's sister, who wants her share of power. Waiting malevolently in the wings is Jonathan Ainsley, Robin's son, looking for an opportunity for revenge. Evan's adopted sister, Angharad, has an equally strong desire for payback and is very much attracted to Jonathan.
It's all very Dynasty-like and very delicious. Bradford keeps the pace moving briskly as she takes the reader from one great British house to another and expertly brings the various subplots together in a surprising conclusion. Ginger Curwen
