Amazing Grace
Author: Danielle Steel
On a warm May night in San Francisco, the Ritz-Carlton ballroom shimmers with crystal and silver as a glittering, celebrity-studded crowd gathers for a charity dinner dance. The evening is perfect–until, just minutes before midnight, the room begins to sway. Glass shatters. And as the lights go out, people begin to scream…. — In the e...  more »

I can't remember why I picked this book up, but it was perfect for me when I read it. A nice reminder how quickly your life can change and how ultimately you do have control over your choices. And when life dishes out things out of our control, how you can make the best of it.

I really enjoyed it.

THIS is why we love Danielle Steel! She's broken free of the boring "template" that she's used on so many recent books and written a great story, with many interesting characters. Strong women, real problems, and interesting circumstances.

I was pleasantly surprised that this was a great story!!! I finished it in a day. The story takes place in the aftermath of a major earthquake in San Francisco when several people with very different lives come together and form lasting bonds. This is actually one of her better books, especially considering some of the crappier ones she's put out lately. Yay Danielle Steel!! Keep the good ones coming!

To date, this is my favorite of Danielle Steele's novels. A California earthquake throws an odd assortment of people together, each with their own interesting challenges, facing "earthquakes" within their personal lives...A wife loses her prestigious husband and lifestyle, a nun questions whether she should leave the family of the Church in order to experience romantic love and a chance for a family of her own...a young woman goes thru the struggle of cutting the apron strings of her stage-struck mother and a life away from the glamour of a musician's life...A man explores AA and life with sobriety....An interesting section out of the days of the lives of realistic and likable characters. Enjoy!

This book is a return to the older Danielle Steel style and story. It's set in her familiar San Francisco with multiple characters and stories interwoven. It was an easy read and I enjoyed her work again.

I'm not really a Danielle Steel fan (this is the only book I've read of hers), but this book was pretty good. It didn't blow me away....but was a good read.

This has to be by far one her best books that I have read in awhile. Very in depth. It will make you cry, but I couldnt put it down once I started reading it.

This book was absolutely amazing. This was the first book that I've read by Danielle Steel and whatever I read afterward had a very tough act to follow. It was very interesting the way every single character in the book crossed paths, became friends, fell in love, and kept in touch, all through a tragedy.
