The final novel in the bestselling Ravenscar trilogy. Elizabeth Turner, scion of the fabled Deravenel family, carries the red-gold hair and beautiful English complexion of her ancestors. And it is not just her colouring that she has inherited from Edward Deravenel. Astute and charismatic, she is also bold, daring and fiercely ambitious, with the same ruthless streak. Now, aged just twenty-five, she stands in the position she has dreamed of -- inheriting the family business, Deravenels. Over eight hundred years old, the company is a bastion of male chauvinism and the challenge that lies ahead of Elizabeth is immense. She also has to cope with the enmity of her cousin Mary who misguidedly believes she is the rightful heir. Cecil Williams acts as Elizabeth's mentor while navigating the treacherous corridors of power with her. But her greatest ally is her childhood friend, handsome, charming Robert Dunley. Highly intelligent, he is her match in every way -- and there is a spark between them that is impossible to resist. Yet Robert is already married. When they begin an affair it scandalises those around them. But far worse is to come!From the family seat perched high on the Yorkshire moors to the glamour of London as the twentieth century draws to a close, Elizabeth fights for her birthright and her inheritance. Passion, drama, betrayal and death stalk the pages of this gripping new blockbuster from the author of A Woman of Substance.

About the Author

Barbara Taylor Bradford was born in Leeds, and by the age of twenty was an editor and columnist on Fleet Street. Her first novel, A Woman of Substance, became an enduring bestseller and was followed by twenty-one others, including the bestselling Harte series. In 2006 The Ravenscar Dynasty began an epic new family series around Ravenscar and the house of Deravenel. Barbara's books have sold more than eighty-one million copies worldwide in more than ninety countries and forty languages, and ten mini-series and television movies have been made of her books. In 2007 Barbara was appointed an OBE by the Queen for her services to literature. She lives in New York City with her husband, television producer Robert Bradford. This is her twenty-fourth novel.

Reviews

The New York Times best-selling author continues her Deravenel family saga-following The Heir-with this contemporary retelling of the life of Queen Elizabeth. Actress/narrator Katherine Kellgren's (katherinekellgren.com) clear yet intense reading brings a sense of complication and consequence to this character-driven story, whose elements of boardroom intrigue, betrayal, and family secrets and obligations will appeal to Taylor's fans. For public libraries.-Denise A. Garofalo, Mount Saint Mary Coll. Lib., Newburgh, NY Copyright 2009 Reed Business Information.
