I read this book quite some time ago but remember it to have some very sad parts. The inside cover says this 'Fine Things is a tale of survival, drama, and powerful caring... It is a tale of loss, survival, adn the price we sometimes pay for loving.'

I have read this book twice and both times it had me in tears. I think that it is a very good book and Danielle Steel is a very talented writer.

Smart, likable, Bernie Fine was the wonder boy of Wolff's, New York's most glamorous department store. A senior VP moving up, he arrives in San Fransisco to open a West Coast store. His career is skyrocketing, but his life is lacking a center. When he looks into the wide, innocent eyes of five-year-old Jane O'Reilly, and then into the equally enchanting eyes of her mother, Liz, Bernie knows he has found what he has been looking for. Bernie thought he had found love to last a lifetime, but when Liz is stricken with cancer shortly after the birth of their first child, time becomes painfully short. Alone with two children, Bernie must face the loss and learn how to move on. New people, new experiences, a new life alone with two kids. He meets it with courage and humor, and learns some of life's hard but precious lessons as he does.

Good short read

I sniffled through this book. =0) Worth the read.
reviewed Fine Things on
3 CDs, 3 hours. Earlier work (better) by popular author Danielle Steel, text is read by Richard Thomas, who does a wonderful job conveying the emotions of the book. Family saga with tragedy. Like most Danielle Steel books, quite a lot of emotions, struggles and triumphs along the way. Steele fans will love it.

This is different for Danielle Steele. A man is the main character who overcomes all the tragedy. Made it interesting. A character I'd really like to know. A good guy.
