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
