0 Susan Howatch books now available as ebooks


Open Roads Media has just released five of Susan Howatch's books as ebooks. Sex, power, ambition, forgiveness, love. Such are the themes explored in Susan Howatch's bestselling and highly addictive books. I've not read any books by Susan Howatch, but these look really good.


In public, Paul Van Zale and his partners at his Wall Street investment bank are exemplary citizens and pillars of the community. In private, however, their lives are riven by jealousy, ambition, hatred, and lust. When the clever and sexy Dinah Slade insinuates herself into Paul's life in the 1920s, the banker's marriage and career are threatened - and Dinah demonstrates her disruptive power again when she seduces Paul's right-hand man. Based on a true historical story - the life of Cleopatra - which Howatch updated to the 1920s and 1930s in New York and London, The Rich Are Different marries imperial ambition to the American dream, and offers a cast of characters glittering with sophistication and style. Available at Amazon




Mark Castallack may have the woman of his dreams, a large fortune, and Penmarric, a Victorian mock-castle on the cliffs of Cornwall, but his private life is heading for disaster. His marriage fails, and when he takes a mistress he winds up with two families who hate each other. As the twentieth century unfolds, his children are left struggling to save not only Penmarric but themselves, and their struggles are marked by greed, ambition, and murder. Howatch's magnificent novel was her first international bestseller and is as compelling as Daphne du Maurier's classic Rebecca. Available at Amazon





Cornelius Van Zale considers himself lucky to have reached the top rank of his great-uncle's Wall Street bank. But along with the banker's gilded lifestyle comes a world of complicated affairs, bitter rivalries, and decades of unfinished business. As young Cornelius struggles to suppress the memories of his brutal past, he comes to realize with horror that his beautiful daughter Vicky is being used as a pawn by powerful men determined to have their revenge on him. With Sins of the Fathers, Susan Howatch creates a striking and provocative sequel to her bestselling novel The Rich Are Different. Available at Amazon





Tucked in the hills of South Wales is Oxmoon, the ancestral estate of the Godwin family. In the summers before 1914, music streams through the family home as the Godwins, at the height of their prosperity, dance in the ballroom with their guests. But despite the remarkable talents of heir-apparent Robert Godwin, the fates have a rough, tough ride planned for him and those he loves. Fortunes shift during two world wars, disastrous love affairs leave the family battered, and finally jealousy threatens to destroy Oxmoon and all it symbolizes. Based on a true story that has been updated to modern times, The Wheel of Fortune is a timeless tale of love, hatred, revenge, redemption, and forgiveness. Available at Amazon




Howatch has published twenty books ranging from murder mysteries to family sagas, including Cashelmara, which follows the fortunes of three generations as they struggle to survive. Set in nineteenth-century Ireland, the De Salis family carries on through times of both riches and hardship, but their hard-won resilience will be threatened by tragedy of their own making. Available at Amazon
