Booklist  

“Loyal fans will tear up at the descriptions of enduring friendship and familial love.”

Publishers Weekly

 

PLAYING THE GAME

 

 “Vintage Bradford, with lavish descriptions of the pleasures of palate and palette, victims as virtuous as they are gorgeous, [and] cruel Lotharios.”—Kirkus Reviews

 “Scintillating…plenty of intrigue, secrets, and steamy encounters.”—Booklist

“A page-turning plot that keeps you gripped through all of its 448 pages.”—Sunday Express

 

BREAKING THE RULES

“Satisfies on the fashion-and-passion front… at the heart of the action stands a determined heroine” —Publishers Weekly

 

“A sprawling novel…readers will be happy to dwell in the glamorous world of Bradford’s sophisticated characters.”—Booklist

“Spellbinding.”—Complete Woman

“For the thirtieth anniversary of A Woman of Substance, Bradford has written a marvelous spin-off with all the drama, glamour, and romance readers expect. With a twenty-first-century woman of substance and characters from the Harte series, this nonstop read has it all.”—RT Book Reviews

 

 

…AND THE NOVELS IN THE RAVENSCAR SERIES

“Her most exciting series yet...It’s filled with romance, suspense and intrigue, and the richly detailed characters come vibrantly alive as expert pacing captures your attention from the very first page.”—RomanticTimes BOOKreviews, Top Pick

“Rife with dastardly internecine struggles, smoldering illicit passion, and cowardly insidious betrayals…[the Deravenels] pack as much intrigue as any Shakespearean royal drama.”

Booklist on Being Elizabeth

 

“The queen of the bestseller list still rules with The Heir.”—Miami Herald

Bestseller Bradford’s dynastic epic spanning the 20th century should tide over her fans…”

Publishers Weekly

 

“Bradford’s characters are so real, readers clamor to know them better.”—USA Today

“This expertly crafted epic novel further explores the triumphs and tragedies of the Deravenel family. It will enthrall readers with its vivid characters and fast-paced, larger-than-life plot.”

“Voice of the Heart is the sort of book I cannot resist, indeed I pray to find.”—The Washington Times Magazine

 

“Meant to be read in a peignoir on a chase lounge whist nibbling scented chocolates.”

—Cosmopolitan

 

“A rich tapestry of love and romance.”—San Diego Union

“It is easy to want every item Bradford catalogues, easy to imagine wearing it, eating and drinking it, driving it, smelling like it…The geography of Voice of the Heart takes a reader to all the right places.”—Los Angeles Times

“An extravagant, absorbing novel of love, courage, ambition, war, death, and passion.”

The New York Times on A Woman of Substance

A Woman of Substance [is] a long, satisfying novel of money, power, passion and revenge, set against the sweep of 20th century history.”—Los Angeles Times

 

 “Wonderfully entertaining.”—Denver Post on A Woman of Substance

 

Library Journal
After her famed photographer father's death, American photojournalist Serena Stone returns to New York to write her father's biography. Alas, she must soon head to Europe to rescue a former lover, but as she nurses him back to health at the family home in France, she discovers a secret in her father's photographic archive that changes the course of her life. Bradford is here turning out her 28th book; since the first 27 were international best sellers, you know how this latest will go.
Kirkus Reviews
Clichéd and overlong novel about war photographers coping with PTSD, love affairs and family secrets. Bradford's protagonist, 30-year-old Serena, is a combat photographer who has left the front lines to pen a biography of her late father, Tommy, founder of a photojournalism empire and a former war correspondent himself. When another photojournalist, ex-boyfriend Zac, is brought from Afghanistan to Venice by a mutual friend, Serena, summoned to his side to help him decompress, finds herself falling for him all over again. The scene shifts to Nice, where Serena reconnects with her older twin sisters, Cara and Jessica, at a villa inherited from their late mother, a movie star of Elizabeth Taylor stature. Over many, many glasses of pink Veuve Clicquot and cups of tea, repetitious conversations belabor mostly peripheral and insignificant details--about Cara's and Jessica's unadventurous love lives, an upcoming anniversary celebrating their departed parents and Zac's continuing recovery from a trauma that was never rendered convincingly in the first place. It isn't until two-thirds in that a potentially riveting "secret from the past" emerges: While combing through her father's archives, Serena finds a cache of photographs revealing that Tommy may have dallied briefly with another war photographer, Valentina. There are photos of a very pregnant Val, with a disturbing caption suggesting that Serena may not be a movie star's daughter after all. Serena can get no confirmation of her origins from her sisters or her father's closest friends. But Zac distracts her from this dilemma with another. Although he promised to give up war-zone reporting forever, he wants to go to Libya to cover the rebellion against Gadhafi. And he insists on taking Serena, now his fiancee, with him. Serena has an ulterior motive for agreeing: Val is now in Libya. But that's not the most distressing information she's withholding from Zac. However, the prodigious amount of front-loaded exposition may discourage readers long before the excitement starts. A gripping novella embedded in a thick tome of largely irrelevant window dressing.

Meet the Author

BARBARA TAYLOR BRADFORD was born and brought up in England, where she started her writing career as a journalist. She has written twenty-seven international bestsellers. This is her twenty-eighth novel. In 2007 Queen Elizabeth awarded her the OBE for her literary achievements. She lives in New York with her husband, TV and film producer Robert Bradford.

Biography

Barbara Taylor Bradford was born and raised in Yorkshire, England. A voracious reader since childhood, she took her first job at the age of 15 with the Yorkshire Evening Post and by the age of 18 was the newspaper's women's page editor. Two years later, she headed for London and became a reporter for the London Evening News, Today Magazine, and other publications.

After meeting her husband-to-be, Robert Bradford, in 1961, she relocated to the United States. Continuing in journalism, Barbara created the syndicated column "Designing Woman," which ran nationwide for 12 years. Children's books and 8 works on decorating followed.

In 1979, Bradford published her first novel, A Woman of Substance, introducing the Emma Harte saga and beginning an almost uninterrupted string of bestsellers. Her work has been published in more than 90 countries in 40 languages, and total sales of her books now surpass 75 million.

Barbara now lives and writes in New York City with her husband, Robert. In addition to her work as a writer, she is active in a number of major charitable organizations, including the Police Athletic League, Girls Inc., City-Meals-on-Wheels, and the Susan G. Koman Breast Cancer Foundation.

Good To Know

Queen Elizabeth bestowed the Order of the British Empire on Barbara in October, 2007. The news was announced on the author's website with the following headline: "BTB Gets Her OBE from QEII."

Some interesting outtakes from our interview with Bradford:

"All 20 of my original manuscripts are stored by the prestigious Brotherton Library at Leeds University in England, next to the works of the Brontë sisters."

"My first job was working as a typist for the Yorkshire Evening Post at the age of 15."

"When I'm not writing, (which isn't often) I love to read. Biographies are my favorite genre, though I do like to read fiction to see what others are putting out on the market. Authors whose books I always make time for are Patricia Cornwell, Mary Higgins Clark, and Bernard Cornwell."

"I love to travel whenever possible. Paris is my favorite city to visit, though some of my favorite holidays are spent back in England."

"My husband, Bob, has a vote for the Academy Awards, so I get to see a lot of movie screenings."

"I'm involved in a number of charity organizations on both sides of the Atlantic. From the Police Athletic League and the Literary Guild in America to PACT (Parents and Children Together Again) in the U.K., I devote a fair amount of time to these causes. And as an advocate for world literacy, I am a member of the Madison Council to the Library of Congress in Washington, D.C."

It was a beautiful day. The sky was a huge arc of delphinium blue, cloudless, and shimmering with bright sunlight above the soaring skyline of Manhattan. The city where I have lived, off and on, for most of my life was looking its best on this cold Saturday morning.
As I walked up Sutton Place, returning to my apartment, I began to shiver. Gusts of strong wind were blowing off the East River, and I was glad I was wearing jeans instead of a skirt, and warm clothes. Still shivering, I turned up the collar of my navy blue pea jacket and wrapped my cashmere scarf tighter around my neck.
It was unusually chilly for March. On the other hand, I was enjoying my walk after being holed up for four days endeavoring to finish a difficult chapter.
Although I am a photojournalist and photographer by profession, I recently decided to write a book, my first. Having hit a difficult part earlier this week, I’d been worrying it to death for days, like a dog with a bone. Finally I got it right last night. It felt good to get out, to stretch my legs, to look around me and to remind myself that there was a big wide world out here.
I increased my pace. Despite the sun, the wind was bitter. The weather seemed to be growing icier by the minute, and I hurried faster, almost running, needing to get home to the warmth.
My apartment was on the corner of Sutton and East Fifty-seventh, and I was relieved when it came into view. Once the traffic light changed, I dashed across the street and into my building, exclaiming to the doorman, as I sped past him, “It’s Arctic weather, Sam.”
“It is, Miss Stone. You’re better off staying inside today.”
I nodded, smiled, headed for the elevator. Once inside my apartment I hung up my scarf and pea jacket in the hall cupboard, went into the kitchen, put the kettle on for tea, and headed for my office.
I glanced at the answering machine on my desk and saw that I had two messages. I sat down, pressed play, and listened.
The first was from my older sister, Cara, who was calling from Nice. “Hi, Serena, it’s me. I’ve found another box of photographs, mostly of Mom. Looking fab. You might want to use a few in the book. Shall I send by FedEx? Or what? I’m heading out now, so leave a message. Or call me tomorrow. Big kiss.”
The second message was from my godfather. “It’s Harry. Just confirming Monday night, honey. Seven-thirty. Usual place. Don’t bother to call back. See ya.”
The whistling kettle brought me to my feet and I went back to the kitchen. As I made the tea I felt a frisson of apprehension, then an odd sense of foreboding … something bad was going to happen … I felt it in my bones.
I pushed this dark feeling away, carried the mug of tea back to my office, telling myself that I usually experienced premonitions only when I was at the front, when I sensed imminent danger, knew I had to run for my life before I was blown to smithereens by a bomb, or took a bullet. To have such feelings now was irrational. I shook my head, chiding myself for being overly imaginative. But in fact I was to remember this moment later and wonder if I had some sort of sixth sense.

    So ¿ I should admit right here and now that Barbara Taylor Bradf

    So – I should admit right here and now that Barbara Taylor Bradford was my gateway author to the romance genre.  A favorite of my grandmother and great aunt, I would grab her books from their bedside tables and sneak off to read: devouring each book as soon as it appeared.  To have the opportunity to read one of her books for review was a major source of excitement.  And, Secrets from the Past did not disappoint in the least.  




    Focusing on Serena, a recently retired from the front war photographer, we are slowly introduced into her life, as she reflects on her past while compiling her father’s photos into a memoir composite.  Recovering from her father’s death, the end of her first serious relationship, and at a bit of loose ends, she is the main point of view to guide us through her story.  One peppered with loving family memories, travel, antiquated clichés from her grandmother, and continuous ‘watching over’ by her father’s best friend and boss, Harry.  




    Add to this, other story lines that involve Serena’s twin sisters, a co-worker, the maintenance for the house the three inherited from their parents in Nice, the Arab Spring uprisings, and a series of photographs that provide only questions with few answers, the different threads all weave a beautiful pattern of a life of a woman well loved and cared for by family and co-workers alike. 




    The pages flew by, highlighted by descriptions of Venice, Nice, New York and Libya the sense of the worldliness of characters and the story was heightened and the descriptions helped to place visual references for the characters and scenes, making them more familiar.  The addition of information about PTSD and the oddly chaotic behavior patterns gives readers a solid sense of the difficulties experienced by those who suffer, and the glimpses into a photojournalists life felt like an introductory course in “can you manage this?”.   




    The multiple story lines weave together to provide the reader with visual and tactile references and an emotional understanding of the story that enriches in a way that just reading words would never do without the author’s skilled writing.  Emotionally complex characters, with defined personalities and solid voices all present fact and display relationship dynamics that are easy to relate to real lives. Mingled with a touch of romance and sensually detailed intimate scenes that are a feast for the imagination, the connections romantic and familial are solid, defined and palpable. 




    Solid writing, great characters, compelling action, glamor and secrets all combine to make this book a very good read – one that many can and will enjoy. 




    I received a Galley Copy from the publisher via NetGalley for purpose of honest review for the Jeep Diva. I was not compensated for this review: all conclusions are my own responsibility.

    Very Good Book - Highly Recommended

    Not as good as I expected from Barbara Taylor Bradford....

    I was a little disappointed with this book. I picked it up because I remember reading A Woman of Substance years ago. This book doesn't even compare to it. As I was reading it, I felt like it was not written by the same author. The story isn't bad, it's just not great.

    American journalist Serena Stone has followed in her dad¿s foots

    American journalist Serena Stone has followed in her dad’s footsteps being a front line was photographer.  She chooses to leave the front lines when her father dies unexpectedly of a heart attack.  Serena finds out her former boyfriend and fellow was photographer, Zac, has returned from the front lines and is struggling with PTSD and is asking for her.  In heading to help him she knows that her life will never be the same.




    Secrets from the Past is a captivating story in which every character jumps right off the page and becomes real.  Serena is the main character but I loved Harry.  As Serena’s dad’s best friend since childhood, he has stepped into the role of “father” and protects and nutures Serena and her sisters.  I loved that he let Serena live her life, but still managed to guide her in the right direction.  He was also the keeper of secrets and knew when it was time to share and when to step back and let things go unsaid.




    Zac and Serena’s relationship would be described as true love.  The turbulence side of their relationship troubled me.  To know that Zac, even before PTSD, has a tendancy to yell and scream at Serena when mad scares me.  I understood that they were “it” for each other and truly enjoyed their relationship when it was good and healthy.




    This is an emotional book with secrets, betrayal, redemption, and love.  You will not be able to put this story down.  I highly recommend it

    Review originally posted at Romancing the Book




    Once again Barbara Taylor Bradford writes a contemporary novel with strong women at its core and their men beside them to be there to support them, love them and be there when needed. Secrets From the Past did not disappoint – my interest was captivated from the first page to the last. There was closure through the epilogue but there seemed to be much more story to tell although all the loose ends were tied up neatly and I would love to meet up with Jessica, Cara and Serena again but don’t think we will.




    This book had wonderful characters with many layers to each of them as well as many different facets to their relationships based on who was interacting with who. But through it all the love the three Stone sisters had for each other, their deceased parents, Harry, and the men they loved shined through. The scenery was vivid and descriptive whether in Nice, Venice, Tripoli or other locations so much so that I could picture the places in my mind’s eye. There was romance, love, sorrow, heartache, secrets, war, family, friends, loved ones, good food, some laughter and tears throughout.




    Bradford has been one of my favorite authors since I read A Woman of Substance back in 1980. Since then I have always looked forward to the release of her next book. If you haven’t read her books before add her to your TBR pile. You’ll be glad you did!




    Favorite Quote: …I thought: Secrets. All families must have secrets. It can’t just be ours.

    It's just OK.

    I always enjoy Bradford, but this wasn't my favorite. Her earlier novels had more plot, and the characters were much more interesting. I'd rather re-read A Woman of Substance than this one.

    If I had read this book without knowing who the author was, I would have never, ever guessed it was by Barbara Taylor Bradford. It seemed very amateurish, with all the "she said", "he said" and  " I said" sentences. It was disjointed and without depth. I have always loved her books, so this one was a huge disappointment.
