Publisher's Summary

From the internationally bestselling author of A Woman of Substance comes the continuing story of indomitable heroine, Emma Harte.

Emma Harte is now eighty years old and ready to hand over the reins of the vast business empire she has created.

To her favourite grandchild, Paula McGill Fairley, Emma bequeaths her mighty retailing empire with these heartfelt words: ‘I charge you to hold my dream'.

A towering international success, this is the powerfully moving tale of one woman’s determination to ‘hold the dream’ which was entrusted to her, and in so doing find the happiness and passion which is her legacy.

Great narrator for an epic story!

Brilliant story that continues the dynasty of Emma Harte. Fantastic narrator who is competent at many accents as required that make the story do real.
