The Cavendon WomenThe Cavendon Women

Barbara Taylor Bradford is the Yorkshire-born bestselling author of the enduring novel A Woman of Substance which has sold over 32 million copies. Her latest book Cavendon Women is a sweeping multi-generational saga for fans of Downton Abbey, set around the stately home of Cavendon Hall as the Roaring Twenties change the family’s fortunes forever.

Four young women from both sides of the house will be the ones to shape its future – Daphne, fighting to modernise her ancestral home; Cecily Swann, forging a path as a fashion designer in London; Deidre, the career girl, and Dulcie, the outspoken debutant. They will change the estate’s future for good or ill as the Roaring Twenties burn towards the Great Depression. Nothing will ever be the same again ….

Barbara began her writing career on the Yorkshire Evening Post and later worked as a journalist in Fleet Street. She is a forthright and popular commentator on everything from fashion to marriage and her journalism has appeared across the national Press.

She supports the National Literacy Trust, a charity dedicated to improving literacy across the UK. She is passionate about improving life chances for everyone, to help them reach their full potential, in particular young women.

Barbara has agreed to join us for an exclusive Yorkshire Life brunch on Wednesday, March 25th at Rudding Park, Harrogate where she will meet and answer readers’ questions about her life and career as well as sign copies of her new book. The event begins at 10.30am and brunch will be served at 11am.
