This is a nice story, in a typical Danielle Stell style. I enjoyed it because I love houses, so the restoration, etc was very interesting. It has a happy ending with a little bit of mystery.

I was reluctant to read this "The House" since several of her recent books have been horrible. "The House" is not up to the quality of the Ms. Steel's earlier books, however, it's getting closer.

This an easy read about and independent woman who realizes that she doesn't have to loose who she is to get married and have children. I thought it was a good book.

First off, try this book just to admire the beautiful period portrait of Danielle Steel on the back cover! A bit reminiscent of Barbara Cartland! And I promise you will like the story too. The book is about a house, a small castle actually, a gift of love built in 1923. Now, in the present, an elderly client leaves a generous sum of money to his workaholic lawyer and tells her to use the money for something wonderful, so she buys the old mansion. Sounds corny, but the author makes it work. Add a handsome architect who arrives on the scene to assist with the remodeling and you have the beginning of a romance. But it is the house that will steal your heart!

This was predictable and okay. It was not great, but not horrible. I liked all the parts concerning the history of the house. The rest was just another romance novel with all the expected twists. Nothing special.
