Another good Danielle Steel! I try to stay away from the romances that have the same old storyline time after time. This book is unique as it is written in the shadows of the Lindbergh kidnapping. Historically set in the late 1930's this is the story about a child abducted and the secret lives that surround this little boy. During the trial for the accused abductor the child's mother is forced to scrutinize her life, her husband and her ex-husband. I won't say anymore or I will give the story away, but this is not the usual "meet prince charming and live happily ever after" tale. A rather gripping tale.......for a romance!

Started out a little slow, but got much more interesting as the book progresses. A heart-wrenching story of a couple whose 4 year old son was kidnapped and what they go through trying to find him and those responsible.

When Marielle Delauney marries New York steel magnate Malcolm Patterson in 1939, she does not tell him of her tragic past--neither the drowning accident that claimed her first child, nor the subsequent beating by her husband Charles that caused her to miscarry, nor the two years she spent recovering in a sanitorium. But what does the enigmatic Malcolm already know? When they have their own child, Teddy, Malcolm, to all appearances, is an adoring father. The still-vulnerable Marielle begins to gain self-confidence, even though she endures daily confrontations with a hostile and even sinister household staff. Then the day after Marielle has a chance meeting with Charles, who drunkenly makes vague threats against Teddy, the four-year-old is snatched from his room, the nanny and nurse chloroformed and gagged. The FBI is summoned, Marielle's past is exposed by a frenzied media and Charles is arrested. But where is Teddy?
