Summary

In 1905 a young kitchen maid leaves Fairley Hall. Emma Harte is sixteen, single and pregnant. By 1968 she is one of the richest women in the world - ruler of a business empire stretching from Yorkshire to the glittering cities of America and the rugged vastness of Australia. A Woman of Substance is as impossible to put down as it is to forget. This multi-million copy bestseller is truly a novel of our times.
