LoveReading Says

A sweeping saga set between 1884 and 1889 packed-full of the trials, endeavours, and love interests of five families. This is the start of a new series, and Barbara Taylor Bradford has introduced the different characters quite beautifully. The story glides from London, to Kent, Hull and Paris creating a fascinating full background in which it sits. From the up and coming Falconers to the Trevalians who head a private bank, fine threads connect the characters together, slowly creating a rich tapestry. This isn’t a book to rush through, it’s one to savour, to sink into and become at one with the story. Take time to introduce yourself to each individual, to understand them and where they sit in the story. Allow the highs and lows to fill your thoughts, to lift your heart, and be ready to console your feelings. Master of his Fate is a rather lovely and enjoyable opening to what promises to be a compelling new series.

Come and meet James and his friends, both old and new as he starts along fate's pathway.

Ms Taylor Bradford has done it again! A new group of people for your pleasure, to read slowly so you can totally absorb them, or to read rapidly because you can’t wait for whatever will happen next.

From the moment you meet James, until the very last page, you will find an instant rapport with him. Every character in this book comes alive as you read, you are under their skin, breathing, learning, listening with them.

James might start learning at a very young age, but his grandmother has many wise words which she instils in him because she can see he has a wise head on very young shoulders.

The different families you will meet as the story unfolds, are from different levels of society which in the late 1800s would have rarely mixed.... Read Full Review

Another superb family saga that Barbara Taylor Bradford does so well.

A sweeping family saga. Barbara Taylor Bradford is a superb story teller. She brings the Victorian era to life with her descriptions of dress, furnishings, food and social differences. Her characters are so well drawn that you feel you know them by the end of the book.... Read Full Review
