Woman of Substance
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.
But what is the price she has paid?
A magnificent dynastic saga, as impossible to put down as it is to forget. A WOMAN OF SUBSTANCE is truly a classic novel of our times.
