A secret affair – Barbara Taylor Bradford

In her latest, eagerly anticipated novel, Barbara Taylor Bradford has once again created an intimate and unforgettable story. A dramatic and inspiring page-turner that illuminates the power of love, A Secret Affair will satisfy her legions of fans and takes its place among her long line of bestsellers. At thirty-three, Bill Fitzgerald, acclaimed American television foreign correspondent, is war-weary and exhausted after a long stint in Bosnia. In need of rest, he travels to Venice to meet Francis Xavier Peterson, an old friend and a war correspondent for Time magazine. While at the bar of the Gritti Palace Hotel on the Grand Canal with Frankie, Bill is struck by the dark beauty of a young woman seated alone at the other side of the bar. Vanessa Stewart is a twenty-seven-year-old glass designer from New York who is in town to visit the glass-blowing works in Murano. The three expatriates decide that, as Americans in Venice, they should celebrate Thanksgiving together. And that evening – full of warmth and camaraderie – begins an illicit though fateful love affair. Bill, a widower, has a six-year-old daughter named Helena, who is being raised by his mother in Manhattan. When it is time to leave Venice, Bill plans a rendezvous with Vanessa – they will meet in New York in December for a Christmas lunch with his daughter and mother. After an idyllic time spent together, they are both completely committed and madly in love. With impediments preventing their relationship from continuing freely, they can hope only for a taste of joy from each other – a series of planned trysts. But on the third of these meetings, one of them does not appear. In A Secret Affair, Barbara Taylor Bradford once again touches on subjects that will stir the hearts and minds of her readers – unconditional love and devotion, loyalty, and loss.
