Being Elizabeth by Barbara Taylor Bradford
Elizabeth Turner carries the red-gold hair and beautiful English complexion of her ancestors. And it is not just her colouring that she has inherited from Edward Deravenel. Astute and charismatic, she is also fiercely ambitious.
Now, aged just twenty-five, she stands to inherit the family business.
Over eight hundred years old, the company is a bastion of male chauvinism. Her greatest ally is her childhood friend Robert Dunley.
When they begin an affair it scandalises those around them, for Robert is already married. Although far worse is to come…
From the family seat perched high on the Yorkshire moors to the glamour of London as the twentieth century draws to a close, Elizabeth must fight for her birthright and her inheritance.
