A courageous woman who would give Oprah a run for her money, if she were an actual person! Excellent book!
over 900 pages; some critics praised the description of parties, homes, food and drink, and jewels, but I skipped these descriptive parts.
Great book! I've just finished the second in the series (Hold the Dream) which I'm also listing. I will be reading #'s 3 & 4 soon!!
