Everything to Gain
Master storyteller Barbara Taylor Bradford's novels have delighted millions around the world. Everything to Gain, her latest book, is in a class all its own. Set in New York, London, Yorkshire, and Connecticut, this is a story that celebrates family, friendship, and the triumph of the human spirit. Mallory Keswick can't imagine how her life could possibly be better. She has a wonderful, fulfilling marriage to a man who loves, supports and nurtures her. She has beautiful twins who bring joy to her days and a lovely home, to all of which she devotes herself wholeheartedly. Mallory feels she has finally found the elusive sense of family that never quite rang true in her own childhood. Life seems almost perfect until an exceptionally cruel act of random violence tears apart the fabric of her happiness, leaving her wondering how to go on. Slowly, Mallory begins to accept that her life has changed, and eventually she comes to know that she must rebuild it. With the help of her dear friend Sarah and her loving mother-in-law, she finds resources she didn't know she had and starts a business, finally believing she can overcome her grief and feel whole again. As for love, she dares not hope. Speaking in the voice of her heroine, Barbara Taylor Bradford tells the story of a remarkable woman who has yet to discover her own strength, a woman who doesn't yet realize that if she has the courage to take it, she has everything to gain.
