Publisher's Summary

Paula O'Neill, beloved granddaughter of Emma Harte and the guardian of her vast business empire, believes that everything Emma left to the family is secure. However, beneath the surface, sibling rivalry and discontent flare. Linnet and Tessa, her daughters, are as different as two women can be. One of them wants desperately for the empire to be hers but has a devastating secret that may put her very life in danger.

Into this volatile mix walks Evan Hughes, a young American fashion designer who is looking for Emma Harte. But Emma has been dead for thirty years. And Evan bears an uncanny resemblance to Paula O'Neill. Troubled by Evan's presence, Paula turns to her grandmother's recently discovered wartime diaries to find the truth, and Emma comes vividly back to life....

The decades fall away. It is London in 1940: the Blitz. Emma, working hard under wartime conditions, is also holding her family together as bombs drop, sirens wail, and her sons go off to war. While she struggles with grief, her indomitability, willpower, and strength come to the fore. As the pages unfurl, Paula discovers the secret Emma took to the grave to protect others, a secret whose repercussions inevitably change lives and may shake a dynasty to its very foundations.

    "Enjoyable"

    I am a fan of Emma Harte so I really enjoyed this book about her brood. There is a large section in the middle that goes back to Emma's day which is a bit repetitive if you've already read the other books, but overall the book was still lovely.

    "Riveting"

    Kate Reading is makes the story come alive. Her various accents and voices make you forget that you are listening to one narrator. Wish it hadn't ended
