I thought this was run of the mill Danielle Steel fluff. It was a good story, some pain, some mystery, some romance, some happiness; but overall I thought it was rather fluffy; I enjoyed the story but was glad when it was over.
Even the cover art describes the plot well: four diverse women, sisters with the same parents, come together after tragedy sets their family on its heels. They spend a year together that tries their patience, belief systems, and ability to make everyday choices that impact beyond the individual self. The ending is a bit too speedy and perfect, but getting there is a study in what each holds to be important.
I used to like Danielle Steel back in the day and then didn't so much when she wrote the klone and I. So since then I haven't read much of her stuff, but this reminds me of the old style Danielle. It's awesome. You will love it.
First Danielle Steel book I read. I liked the book and it made me cry in a few spots; I am a sensitive person though. The only down fall is that I could predict what was coming next. Overall good easy read just a little predictable. Thanks
This is my last Danielle Steel. The plotline for this book had such potential and she screwed it up so badly I couldn't wait for it to end. What could have been a look into the lives of four successful sisters who learn what the true priorities are in life, Steel glosses over everything and races to a neat and tidy conclusion.
Ms. Steel used to be a terrific writer. Now she's not even mediocre.
I loved this book. I couldn't put it down. Steel makes you feel like you are a part of the family, feeling their pain and their joy. You feel yourself rooting for each one of them in their own personal triumphs and wanting to sympathize with their tragedies. A definite must read.
I love Danielle Steel and this was no disappointment to me .. a wonderful sister book since I myself have 2 other sisters , it made me think on our relationship as sisters and what we each get from one another
This book made me want a sister. It showed me how different but so alike family can be. I also shows the no matter how hard times get as long as you have family by your side you can make it through the storm.
I've never read any of her books before. This one left me wanting more; I hated putting the book down. I have a couple sisters of my own, and this book brings to life the bond I wish to death I had with my younger sister. Danielle Steel also incorporates some other real realtionship issues well. The sisters were blessed with an amazingly loving famuily. It might seem silly that things work out so well because of love and family but I believed it.
P.S. It won't take too long to figure out who's who on the cover.
I haven't read Steeles books in a very long time, after awile they all started sounding the same.Danielle Steele did a good job this time separating this book from others. I liked this book alot and highly recommend it.
This is a great book about family, more specifically sisters, and the strong bond that family can have. This book emphasizes how family can help each other cope through difficult times by leaning on each other. Very good book.
This being the 1st Danielle Steel book I have ever read, I loved it. It started out very slow but after the 4th chapter I was hooked. I finished it in a Day and a half. Great Book. Very intriging. Kept me turning the pages and made me feel like I was a sister too..
What a disappointment. Don't get me wrong, the story itself is wonderful. The writing, however, is quite poor. I swear, my middle schooler writes in the same way - choppy sentences, no depth at all. Ms. Steel may be "cranking out" too many, and the quality is suffering.
Spoiler alert! Have a WHOLE box of tissues handy when reading this book. I haven't read much of Danielle Steele in long time, but on the advise of my own sister, I read this one. WOW. What an incredible bond between these sisters and their parents. Sisters certainly do share a unique and incredible bond, as is the case in my own family, and this book just solidifies my faith in sisters. Loved it.
