Praise for Just Rewards

“Ambitious…engrossing…the plot is equal parts evil, rivalry, and romance.”--Washington Post Book World
“Bradford’s characters are so real, readers clamor to know them better.”
USA Today Weekend Magazine
"Bradford's latest is a truly remarkable conclusion to her beloved Harte family saga. The characters' lives intertwine to create a riveting and intense plot. Not many novels have the ability to completely immerse the reader, but this one draws you into the story from the very first page."
--RT Book Reviews
"Fans of Bradford will be delighted to reacquaint themselves with tried-and-true favorites from her previous novels."
 “The Harte saga is as much a force of nature as a work of fiction…the issues at stake still compel readers after 25 years. Bradford understood early on readers’ hunger for depictions of women who are strong and powerful and whose values embrace family. A quarter-century ago, Emma Harte crossed the no-woman’s-land that once divided family and business, and now generations of readers consider her a role model in their own lives.”--The Washington Post
“Bradford gives her readers more of what she does best—strong, savvy female protagonists who relentlessly pursue great destinies, characters much like the author herself…well-written and full of emotion…completely riveting…the plot, while always complex, has suspenseful moments to keep the pace sharp…good reading…Unexpected Blessings clearly shows why Bradford is still the premier writer of family sagas.”—Miami New Times
“The exploits and adventures of Bradford’s indomitable heroines continue to make for lusty escapist fiction in this robust fifth novel in the series.”—Publishers Weekly
“The enduring theme of family loyalty ennobles the Harte family saga and raises it to a heartwarming crescendo that longtime fans will appreciate. New readers will relish it as well.”
Book Page

“Promises to tantalize, mesmerize, and titillate readers of all ages. It has all the Bradford touches: strong and swift plot, hints of secrets about to be revealed…spellbinding… destined to fly off bookseller’s racks and be passed around many book clubs. It is a darn good read.”—Roanoke Times
“It will be…appreciated by those with an irresistible desire to follow the further adventures of the Harte clan.”–Publishers Weekly
“Bradford’s characters are so real, readers clamor to know them better.”
USA Today Weekend Magazine
“[An] original story with new energy. Emma Harte is one of those characters whom we never want to leave behind, and thank goodness Bradford has brought her back to us with a story worthy of this truly remarkable woman.”
RT BOOKclub Magazine, “Top Pick”

“A rare treat. We guarantee you will laugh and cry with the characters and that you won’t be able to put it down.”--Literary Guild Magazine
“Meant to be read in a peignoir on a chase lounge whist nibbling scented chocolates.”--Cosmopolitan

“Engrossing…Stunning.”—Pittsburgh Press

“Readers who shared the trials and tribulations, and successes of the indomitable Emma Harte in A Woman of Substance will find this sequel equally engrossing. Attractive, intelligent, and capable, Paula McGill Fairley proves a worthy successor to her grandmother’s domain.”—Booklist

Philadelphia Inquirer

“A deeply involving story of women of power and wealth and substance.”
