Film Description

A collection of five adaptations of Barbara Taylor Bradford's novels. Features A Woman Of Substance, Hold The Dream, Act Of Will, Voice of the Heart and To Be The Best.

A Woman Of Substance: A story of love, revenge, money and power from the pen of Babara Taylor Bradford. Successful businesswoman Emma Harte (Deborah Kerr), worried that her sons are plotting against her, looks back on her life up to the present day, when her children threaten to destroy her business.

Hold The Dream: In this second installment of the trilogy, Emma Harte passes on the Harte business empire to her favourite granddaughter, Paula McGill Fairley, who must strive to unite a warring family.

Act Of Will: Three generations of women struggle through fifty turbulent years in this saga of love, death and drama, based on Barbara Taylor Bradford's semi-autobiographical novel.

Voice Of The Heart: Actress Katherine Tempest (Lindsay Wagner) is destined for stardom, but her success comes at the price of alienating her novelist friend Francesca (Victoria Tennant) and interfering in her relationship with fellow actor Victor Mason (James Brolin).

To Be The Best: Paula O'Neil (Lindsay Wagner), the sole heir and head of the empire built up by her great-grandmother, Emma Harte, must fight off the hostile intentions of her power-hungry cousin Jonathan. The final part of the trilogy, following 'A Woman of Substance' and 'Hold the Dream'.
