When I read it I talked it up to friends. And regretfully, the three books of the saga had characters that were strong but not developed enough to carry the saga on their own. Perhaps, the saga may have worked better if only a few at a time carried the main plot. In closing, the part I enjoyed the most was the Interlude,only if I kept in mind that Emma was still alive.

This is the fourth book in the Harte saga, and it was just as good as the rest of the series. This book begins to focus on the fourth generation of Hartes, Kallinskis, and O'Neills. Emma's great-granddaughter, Linnet, daughter of Paula, has begun to work at Harte's, and the beginning of the book focuses on her.

Barbara Taylor Bradford hints at Emma’s Secret AND Cavendon Hall TV series
She looks so much like Paula, could she be a long-lost Harte? The structure of the book was in three sections, starting out in the year with Linnet, then moving back to the Second World War, with Emma, and then back to "present-day" , focusing again on the great-grandchildren. I liked this structure - it gave me a chance to revisit Emma, who is still my favorite of Bradford's characters. What is it? Who does it involve? Why wouldn't Emma have told any of her family about it or at least given them the tools to figure it out themselves?
What consequences would it have for these characters? I don't have too much more to say about the book. It's just as good as any of the others in the series, although the first is still my favorite. More corporate suspense and intrigue, more romance, more interesting British history. Four out of five Whatevers. Recommended for anyone who has enjoyed this series already!

Emma's Secret , Emma Harte Series : Book 4 by Barbara Taylor Bradford | | Booktopia
I read A Woman of Substance years ago and recall enjoying it, so when I came across this book at a used book sale I grabbed it. I didn't realize this was the 4th book in the series. I would have been completely lost without the 3 clans family trees at the front of the book, glad it was there. While I did enjoy this story, especially the fashion retrospective, I did find it very repetitive and inconsistent.
For example, there are multiple references to how hard the members of the clans work, howev I read A Woman of Substance years ago and recall enjoying it, so when I came across this book at a used book sale I grabbed it. For example, there are multiple references to how hard the members of the clans work, however, they seem to knock off at 5pm and gather together on weekends and go out to dinner often during the week, so I am not really seeing the brutal pace they apparently maintain in their work lives?
Also, I found the continuous hero worshipping of Emma Harte very tedious. That said, the mystery of Evan's background kept my interest and on the whole, reading this story was like immersing myself in a binge marathon of Dynasty episodes - good escapist entertainment. Apr 30, Lauren rated it liked it Shelves: fiction-romance , historical-romance. I put historical, in part because it did have a flashback section, but this book confused me for the longest part too in reference to this supposed secret.
Yes, there was one, but it wasn't completely revealed until towards the end.

Before that, it was like, ok, suspense? What happened to it? Where is it? Not the worst book I've read, but I still wouldn't read it again. I DO however want to find the accompanying books as it seems it's actually a series and I do want to find out what's I put historical, in part because it did have a flashback section, but this book confused me for the longest part too in reference to this supposed secret.
I DO however want to find the accompanying books as it seems it's actually a series and I do want to find out what's going to happen to some of the other characters, now that the secret has been revealed. Sep 08, Sababa rated it liked it. It was not a bad book, but I felt it dwelt on the past. I did not like reading about Emma during the wars.
It was boring. I liked reading Tessa's character. I enjoyed that she was not perfect. It made her more human. On the other hand, Linnet seems very fake. She seems to be an embodiment of perfection. And how come Paula looks like Emma and Linnet looks like Emma.
Its weird and unbelievable. I don't like reading it. Although I liked Jullian. I wish to read more about him.
