The continuing story of Emma Harte, indomitable heroine of A Woman of Substance.

Emma Harte was the heroine of Barbara Taylor Bradford’s multi-million copy bestseller, A Woman of Substance.

Now she is 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.

Rich with all the passion, intrigue, and emotions that made A Woman of Substance so wonderfully satisfying, Hold the Dream once again showcases the brilliance of Barbara Taylor Bradford.
