First account of her eventful life written with her full collaboration

Synopsis

The Woman of Substance by Piers Dudgeon

From her childhood in Leeds, and her meteoric rise to editor on Fleet Street at the age of 20, to her amazing career as one of the worldâs best-loved and most successful novelists, this is an intimate look at an extraordinary woman.

This is the first time Barbara Taylor Bradford has collaborated on a memoir of her amazing life. Full of revelations, itâs as absorbing a read as any one of her bestsellers.
