Selected by Sarah Broadhurst

A romantic and thrilling story, set in Nice, Venice and Libya, of a war photographer turned biographer of her father’s life as she stumbles upon a mysterious series of photos. Barbara Taylor Bradford, or BTB as she is known in the trade really is a master storyteller.
 

A 'Piece of Passion' from the publisher...

'If you like your fiction poignant, gripping, and with just a dash of glamour, bestselling author Barbara Taylor Bradford may well be your cup of tea.  And if you haven’t read her before, Secrets from the Past is a great place to start.

 

Set in Venice and the South of the France, it’s a glittering novel of deeply-buried secrets, passionate love, obsession and redemption. It’s a tale of young woman who is in search of the truth – the truth about her father, her family, and – indeed – her very own life. She embarks on a journey to uncover the secrets of the past in a quest to understand a story from decades earlier.

 

What I love most about Barbara’s books is how utterly transporting and absorbing they are whilst still being very easy to relate to. She writes about strong, clever women – women of substance – who face difficult situations, who have to make difficult choices. Reading her novels is like spending time with her: I always feel uplifted, inspired and invigorated afterwards!' - Thalia Suzuma, HarperFiction Editor

A big thank you for the two Lovereading bags I ordered, which have arrived safely. I love mine and will use it with pride. The bags are lovely quality, sturdy and support a good cause in the Rewrap initiative; I think they make the perfect accessory for any book lover. The second bag was a gift for my sister and she says she will take it to her next book group meeting to help spread the Lovereading word. Once again, many thanks. Emily Wright

Thirty-year old Serena Stone is a talented war photographer who has followed in her famous father's footsteps. But when he dies unexpectedly, she steps away from the war zone to reassess her life. At the same time, her former lover, Zachary North, comes out of Afghanistan suffering from mental and physical exhaustion and needs a safe place to heal. Serena and Zac rekindle their passion - and together tackle her father's huge legacy of iconic photographs. But among these images, Serena stumbles across pictures that turn her world upside down. In search of the truth about her father, her family and her own life, Serena begins a desperate quest to uncover a story from decades earlier.
