It is love at first sight between Lily Goodhue, beautiful, neglected daughter of a wealthy industrialist, and socialite playboy Harry Kohle, brilliant, rebellious son of a Jewish merchant...

If you like Danielle Steele's writing, you should like this one, although I consider it a bit better written than Steele's books. At least, we are spared frequent mention of the heroine's "enormous violet eyes," and the like. (In one Steele book, I was startled to realize that a number of pages later, they had somehow changed to huge brown pansy eyes--contact lenses, perhaps?)
I'll admit that the story was engaging enough to entertain me throughout a long plane flight. The unloved daughter of rich parents breaks off her engagement to a rich young man they approve of for all the wrong reasons and marries another rich young man and is disowned. He, in turn, is cast off by his parents for marrying outside the Jewish faith. They live a happy life in poverty while he tries to become a writer and they love each other to the end, in spite of terrible problems that drive them apart at times. I did get slightly annoyed by his propensity for buying her whole sets of elegant clothing and expensive jewelry, but I suppose there are really people who do that.

Lily had everything she could possibly derire--beauty, fortune, a wealthy fiance. And yet, on the eve of her wedding, she threw it all away...for the love of another man.
Harry Kohle was everything her parents despised--a brash young man with nothing to offer but passion, devotion, and a driving ambition to write. Still, Lily knew it was love at first sight...
From the high society of New York's Upper East Side, to the corrupting glamour of Hollywood and haunting beauty of Israel--their hearts were challenged by the ultimate test of time. Their love, shadowed by success, betrayal and infidelity, is a story so poignant, so powerful, it will touch your heart forever....
