Publisher's Summary

Set in Yorkshire, Hong Kong and America, this remarkable novel continues the story of an unorthodox and endlessly fascinating family. As the spirit of Emma Harte lives on in her granddaughter, Paula O’Neill, an engrossing drama is played out in the glamorous arena of the wealthy and privileged, underscored by a cutthroat world of jealousy and treachery.

Paula must act with daring and courage to preserve her formidable grandmother’s glittering empire from unscrupulous enemies - so that Emma’s precious dream lives on for the next generation.

Such a disappointment

I loved reading a woman of substance, hold the dream was a bit “meh” but to be the best was truly awful, the story line was drawn out and dull. I felt compelled to read the last two books to complete the trilogy but really wish I hadn’t bothered.

Another great story from a fabulous Author.

Loved every moment. Couldn't stop listening. I can't wait for the next book in the series!! Very well articulated and fabulous accents.
