Summary

The book the fans have been waiting for: the much-anticipated sequel to the phenomenally successful A Woman of Substance.
The legendary Emma Harte, heroine of A Woman of Substance, returns....
At the centre of this sweeping saga stands Paula O'Neill, beloved granddaughter of Emma and the guardian of her vast business empire. Paula believes that all that Emma left to the family is secure. However, beneath the surface sibling rivalry and discontent are beginning to flare.
Into this volatile mix walks Evan Hughes, a young American fashion designer. On her deathbed, Evan's grandmother told her to find Emma Harte. But Emma has been dead for 30 years, and Evan bears an uncanny resemblance to Paula O'Neill.
Troubled by Evan's presence, Paula turns to Emma's recently discovered wartime diaries to find the truth....
The decades fall away. It is London during the Blitz, and Emma Harte comes vividly back to life. Working hard under wartime conditions, she is also holding her family together as bombs drop, sirens wail and her sons go off to war. As she struggles to cope, the indomitability, willpower and strength that have forged Emma into the woman she is all come to the fore.
Paula discovers the secret Emma Harte took to the grave to protect others.
Emma's Secret is vintage Barbara Taylor Bradford....
