Barbara Taylor Bradford marks 30 years of bestsellerdom with a quest to uncover real women of substance.
I still own my copy of A Woman of Substance by Barbara Taylor Bradford. In fact it was handed down by my mum. The epic story of the Harte dynasty is a remarkable rags-to-riches story of Emma Harte who beats all odds to become a success while her own family plots against her to gain control of her mighty business empire.
The book was first published in 1979 and to celebrate its anniversary, Barbara Taylor Bradford and HarperCollins UK are launching a campaign to find real women of substance living and working in the UK today.
In association with P&O Cruises, The Daily Express and Debenhams, and in support of Target Ovarian Cancer, Barbara is encouraging you to visit her special new website and nominate women who deserve special recognition and are true examples of women of substance.
And, if you still haven’t read it go and get a copy. It will transport you back to the yesteryears of Dallas and Dynasty, perfect for a beach holiday.
