Danielle Steel's powerful novel is about being pulled into a place where nothing is what it seems. It is about being seduced and lied to and turned around, and wanting to believe the lies--until the moment comes, in one blinding instant, when survival and salvation depend on a final LEAP OF FAITH: THE ONLY PATH TO FREEDOM, AND LIFE.

Some people have all the luck, or so it seems. Marie-Ange is a blessed child until horror changes her life. She moves and is forced to live a life she could never have imagined. Steel has fast become one of my prefered authors, not because she writes thrillers but because she tells of the human condition. I really liked this book.

Steel's usual verve is all but absent from her 52nd novel, a hasty Cinderella story that begins when heroine Marie-Ange Hawkins goes from an idyllic French childhood to a loveless upbringing in Iowa after her parents and brother are killed in a terrible accident. Only 11, she's sent off to be raised by her sole relative, cold and callous great-aunt Carole. The only bright spot in her life is her intimate friendship with Billy Parker, a solid American farmboy who loves and respects her from the time they are children; she loves him, too, but thinks of him as a brother. When Marie-Ange turns 18 and wins a scholarship to go to college, her aunt does not help, but Billy buys her a car and she is able to attend. Then a stranger turns up and informs her that she is in fact a very rich woman; her aunt sells the farm, and Marie-Ange decides to return to France. There she meets the current owner of her old home, 40-year-old widower Comte de Beauchamp charming, handsome and so very polite

FROM OUR EDITORS
Danielle Steel weaves another tangled web of deceit and betrayal in Leap of Faith, the story of one womans triumph over several kinds of adversity. Orphaned at the age of 11, Marie-Ange Hawkins is forced to leave her familys château in France and live with her cold and uncaring elderly aunt on a farm in Iowa. There she befriends the boy next door, who grows up at her side and comes to love her. But when Marie-Ange turns 21, she learns that her penny-pinching aunt has hidden the fact that her parents left millions of dollars in trust. Heady with her newfound wealth, Marie-Ange returns to her childhood home, where she meets the handsome Comte Bernard de Beauchamp. A whirlwind marriage and two children follow, but Marie-Ange soon learns that her husband is not the man she thinks he is; he just may be a cold-blooded killer.

One of her many good reads. I find her books always have the same plot line but I love her stories. I was so wrapped up in this book that I finished it over a weekend staying up till 1 or 2 in the morning to finish it.

There she meets the current owner of her old home, 40-year-old widower Comte de Beauchamp charming, handsome and so very polite. They fall for one another quickly (though she knows nothing about him, as Billy points out), marry within months of their first meeting and have two children. But cracks start to show in the comte's smooth, convincing exterior: it turns out that her prince charming who never pays his bills, but doesn't mind spending her money excessively may be a murderer. She refuses to believe this, but when she finally must face the truth, can she save herself and her children?
