This book is sooooooo different from her previous books, it had me spellbound what will happen next. Never have I wanted to finish a book just to discover the plot as much as I had this one! I wanted to know if any of the bad guys would turn good in the end. I wanted to know would it really have a happy ending---this is a MUST READ!!!!!!!!

One of Danielle Steels better books. Usually I find them too mindless more recently. This one has more feeling. Still Danielle Steels writing style though, but I enjoyed this one.

A man of unshakable integrity, Lee will soon become the one person who tries to save Fernanda's family from a terrifying fate. Fernanda must draw on a strength she never knew she had.
