This month Spa Week is honored to feature British-American novelist Barbara Taylor Bradford as our author of the month. The #1 New York Times best-selling author has been dazzling readers for over three decades, and her latest novel The Cavendon Women has already been hailed as another jewel in her crown. “Bradford has set the bar for what a saga should be: sweeping, fascinating and dramatic,” declared the Romantic Times in its four-and-a-half-star review of The Cavendon Women. “She’s done it again in this wonderful series with a cast of strong, loving women … The power and emotion of Bradford’s novel comes through on every page.”

To celebrate the release of The Cavendon Women, Spa Week is teaming up with our Exclusive Book Sponsor St. Martin’s Press for a giveaway that will sweep you off your book-loving feet. The grand prize includes signed copies of The Cavendon Women and Cavendon Hall, a selection of Hillhouse Candles, notepads, journals and a coffee mug by Wordologies, and bath and beauty products from Neal’s Yard. Read on for more information and details on how to win!

A sequel to last year’s Cavendon Hall, The Cavendon Women builds on the drama and romance of the first book by following the Swann and Igham families out of the Edwardian Era and into the tumultuous Twenties. Beginning with a family gathering one summer weekend in 1926, the novel explores the secrets, sorrows, and joys of these complex clans, along with the Cavendon women’s determination to bring their family through the rapidly changing times and into a new age. The Cavendon Women is Barbara Taylor Bradford’s thirtieth novel, and the reviews leave no doubt that the book is a worthy celebration of the milestone!


Bradford first arrived on the scene in 1979 with her debut book A Woman of Substance, now ranked as one of the top-ten best-selling novels of all time. But before that, she was a hard-working young woman climbing through the media world in pursuit of creative success. An only child born in Leeds, West Yorkshire, Bradford landed a job at fifteen in the typing pool of the Yorkshire Evening Post. A year later she graduated to a reporter position, and by eighteen she had become an editor. She went on to work as a fashion editor of Woman’s Own magazine and a columnist for the London Evening News before she established herself as one of romance’s reigning voices with A Woman of Substance. Twenty-nine novels later, Bradford hasn’t missed a beat: Every one of her books has become a best-seller on both sides of the Atlantic.

A living literary legend with over 35 million copies in print, Bradford’s reputation extends beyond the world of bookworms. In 2007 she was awarded by none other than Queen Elizabeth II for her contribution to literature, and her original manuscripts have been archived for preservation alongside the Bronte sisters in the Brotherton Collection at Leeds University. Spa Week could not be more thrilled to join forces with this decorated author, and we already envy the winner of this special giveaway!
