Stevie Jardine is a force to be reckoned with. When her husband Ralph Jardine died of a bungled routine operation after seven short years of marriage, she takes charge of her life and joins the family business to learn what Ralph loved to do. Her in-laws, Bruce and Alfreda Jardine, fought her tooth and nail, but in the end Stevie won. Her eldest son, Nigel, was the rightful heir to Jardine’s and one day the famous jewelry company would be under his control and it was in the elder Jardines best interest that Stevie be allowed to teach him how to run it.
Stevie’s children are her pride and joy and she looked forward to Nigel taking over Jardine’s. He has other plans, however. Bitter memories corrupt his better judgement and it takes a violent act of compassion to bring peace to the Jardine family, though at what cost? Stevie has done well on her own all these years and now she must face a past with a man she has locked completely out of her life. Can she hold her life and her family’s legacy together without everything falling apart?
Barbara Taylor Bradford has a strong style of writing and isn’t afraid to give her characters difficult challenges to face. This story will hold you captive and within the first few chapters you will be in love with the characters. I would recommend this book to anyone and look forward to reading more of her books.
