After reading some of the other reviews I thought this might finally be the Danielle Steel novel I have been waiting for. I have been reading her books since I was a teenager and they were passed on to me by my grandmother and have been very disappointed over the last 5-10 years. I still read them everytime they come out, out of loyalty, but always feel as if her books could be so much better if she would spend a little more time on them. I always feel as if they are rushed, ruining what could have been a really great novel. This book was no different. Overall, it was a good book and kept me interested but was not the book I had to stay up all night to finish. The book could have been so much better if she spent a little more time adding some emotion and detail.

A sparkling story with an uplifting spiritual twist. This is a page turner with a satisfying twist at the end that most won't see coming.

This was one of the best Danielle Steel's every written. And I have read all of hers. The courage this person shows will bring you to tears and give you courage for yourself.

The entirety of this book could have been written in 50 pages. So much of this was repetetive and I found myself feeling obligated to finish it instead of enjoying the read. I just really felt like the author must not have put much effort into this one, sadly.

Carole Baker has come to Paris, with its rain-slicked slate roofs and winding streets, to work on her novel--and to find herself after a lifetime in the spotlight. A legend of film and stage, Carole has set a standard of beaty and grace, devoting herself to her family and causes around the world. But on this cool November evening, as her taxi speeds into a tunnel just past the Louvre, a fiery instant of terror, shatters hundreds of lives--and leaves Carole alone, unconscious and unidentified in a Paris emergency room.

At the Ritz, they wonder where their famous, incognito guest has gone. From California to London, Carole's friend and family begin to make inquiries. Then comes a moment of shock as they realize that Carole is far from home and fighting for her life.

In the days that follow, the paparazzi swarm. A mysterious stranger, a man famous in his own realm, quietly visits the hospital to see the women he once loved and never forgot. Carole's two grown children rush to her bedside, waiting and praying until the miraculous begins to happen...But as a woman whom the whole world knows slowly awakens, she knows nothing of herself. Every detail must be pieced back together--from a childhood in rural Mississippi to the early days of her career, from the unintentional hurt inflicted on her daughter to a fifteen year old secret love affair that went tragically wrong. But for Carole, an extraordinary opportunity has arisen in a life-threatening crisis: a second chance to count her blessing, heal wounded hearts, recapture lost love...and to live a life that will truly honor others--beginning with herself.
