Master storyteller Barbara Taylor Bradford's novels have delighted millions around the world. Everything to Gain, her latest book, is in a class all its own. Set in New York, London, Yorkshire, and Connecticut, this is a story that celebrates family, friendship, and the triumph of the human spirit. Mallory Keswick can't imagine how her life could possibly be better. She has a wonderful, fulfilling marriage to a man who loves, supports and nurtures her. She has beautiful twins who bring joy to her days and a lovely home, to all of which she devotes herself wholeheartedly. Mallory feels she has finally found the elusive sense of family that never quite rang true in her own childhood. Life seems almost perfect until an exceptionally cruel act of random violence tears apart the fabric of her happiness, leaving her wondering how to go on. Slowly, Mallory begins to accept that her life has changed, and eventually she comes to know that she must rebuild it. With the help of her dear friend Sarah and her loving mother-in-law, she finds resources she didn't know she had and starts a business, finally believing she can overcome her grief and feel whole again. As for love, she dares not hope. Speaking in the voice of her heroine, Barbara Taylor Bradford tells the story of a remarkable woman who has yet to discover her own strength, a woman who doesn't yet realize that if she has the courage to take it, she has everything to gain.

Reviews

In Bradford's first book with her new publisher, heroine Mallory Keswick must learn to live again after a terrible tragedy, traveling first to her country home and then to the Yorkshire moors for refuge and, eventually, revelation.

Bradford weighs in with a maudlin saga about a woman's struggle to go on after a devastating tragedy. Her narrator, New York wife and mother Mallory Keswick, feels she is showered with blessings, but just as the family is making plans to go to London for Christmas, her husband, twin children and dog are murdered in an attempted carjacking. Depressed and contemplating suicide, Mal flees to London, where she slowly learns to accept her losses. Returning to the States, she turns the family's Connecticut weekend retreat into a successful business venture and eventually meets a man who is able to breach her emotional barricades. Spanning five years and two continents, Bradford's chronicle offers several affecting passages--but when Mal continues to mention the loss of her dog in the same tragic litany as her husband and children, credibility evaporates. Monotonous inventory listings of the trappings of material success slow the narrative momentum, as does the author's flat prose and tin-ear dialogue, especially ludicrous since Mal is supposedly a Radcliffe graduate. Nor does Bradford reach beyond her tried and true romantic formula for greater complexity--or even to tie up some potentially intriguing plot lines that mysteriously evaporate after they are introduced.
