A saga of friendship and fame, secrets, and success from the #1 New York Times–bestselling author of A Woman of Substance.
Orphaned at a young age, the lives of Rosie, Gavin, Nell, and Kevin are irrevocably intertwined. Rising from poverty, all four go on to stunning success: Rosie as an award-winning costume designer; Gavin as a world-renowned Hollywood actor; Nell as the head of a global public relations company; and Kevin as the head of the NYPD Crime Intelligence Commission and a leader in the fight against organized crime.
Told with the broad scope and narrative power characteristic of Barbara Taylor Bradford, this book is the story of a family formed by fortune, not blood, as they lose their innocence, follow their passions, triumph over adversity, and ultimately transform their own lives.
