Publisher's Summary

The gripping multimillion-copy best seller charting the rags to riches story of Emma Harte.
In 1905 a young kitchen maid leaves Fairley Hall. Emma Harte is 16, single and pregnant.
By 1968 she is one of the richest women in the world, ruler of a business empire stretching from Yorkshire to the glittering cities of America and the rugged vastness of Australia. But what is the price she has paid?
A Woman of Substance is as impossible to pause as it is to forget. This multimillion-copy best seller is truly a novel of our times.
