Where You Belong & Her Own Rules Barbara Taylor Bradford
Where You Belong:
On the heels of her bestselling A Sudden Change of Heart, here is a new novel from blockbuster author Barbara Taylor Bradford- about a woman finding herself and her place in life...in love...and in the world.
Valentine (Val) Denning is a young American photojournalist on the frontlines in Pec (a town in Kosovo), where she and her two colleagues- the British Tony Hampton and the American Jake Newburg- are covering the war. In a nightmarish ambush, all three are shot, and it is only when Val wakes up in a Belgrade hospital that she finds out that Tony, her lover, is dead. Equally upsetting, when she and Jake go to Tony's funeral it becomes clear that Tony was still married and Val never knew. In the wake of this traumatic event, Val goes home to New York City where she realizes that her recent experiences have not only thrown her life in turmoil, but also dramatically shifted her perspective about her future.
The captivating narrative and page-turning excitement that have made Barbara Taylor Bradford an international bestseller are at their strongest here- especially as she grapples with world-scale issues: the horrors of war and how they can devastate families, lovers, countries.
More than anything, Where You Belong is about a young woman's realization of her own inner strength and her ability to find her way in the world. With her signature compassion and narrative power, Barbara Taylor Bradford will once again capture the hearts of millions of readers.
