Perched on a hill overlooking San Francisco, the house was magnificent, built in 1923 by a wealthy man for the woman he adored.

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!

Sarah Anderson, a beautiful, successful thirtysomething attorney, is having a midlife crisis. She's become a workaholic, spending 60- to 70-hour weeks at the office, and she is involved in an unhappy relationship with a man she only sees on weekends, who refuses to involve her in any other aspect of his life. She lives in a dumpy apartment, which contains the same furniture she used in college, and she has no outside interests other than the sometime boyfriend and her job. Everything changes, however, when an eccentric, elderly client of Sarah's dies and leaves her a small fortune and a message: to use the money for something wonderful, to live well, and to think about something other than work. Following this advice, Sarah purchases the dilapidated old mansion the client had lived in (after finding out that it was her own grandfather who originally built it), breaks up with the cheating boyfriend, and focuses all of her attention on rehabbing the old house. As she works to restore the place, she finds contentment in her new pastime; a nice, normal boyfriend in the architect who is helping her; and familial contentment as both her mother and grandmother find happiness in the purchase of this house. A typical Steel fairy tale.
