Storyline

As Emma Harte's empire grows, she arranges her assets in such a way as no one knows she is the buyer, noting that most men don't like dealing with a woman on business matters. The various layers of ownership come in quite handy as George Fairley drinks and gambles his family businesses away and she gets a opportunity to buy them cheap. She is lonely however and decides to marry the family solicitor, young Arthur Ainsley but the marriage is a failure. When she meets Australian Paul McGill, she meets the love of her life. Their marital status doesn't prevent them from living a happy life until, just before the outbreak of World War II, he has to return to Australia. In the present day, Emma takes action against her children who have been plotting a takeover of her empire. Written by garykmcd
