James Falconer returns in the third House of Falconer historical novel from multi-million copy bestseller Barbara Taylor Bradford. James Falconer has risen from being a barrow boy on a London market to wealthy businessman. But not everything in his life has been as successful as his retail empire. Having lost his wife – and now estranged from his only child – he volunteers to fight in the Great War. And when he is gravely wounded at the Battle of the Somme in 1916, it changes his outlook forever. Through his convalescence, James swears to repair his fractured relationship with his daughter and to hold different things dear. But society is changing fast, riven by post-war hardship and yet revolutionised by sweeping changes, from suffragettes winning the vote to motor cars on the streets and biplanes across the Channel. With a new sense of what is really important, James must weather both personal and professional storms to find a happiness beyond his success. A rich and evocative saga of Britain as it races into the roaring twenties, The Wonder of It All is Barbara Taylor Bradford at her very best.
