I have never read a Danielle Steel book that I didn't like. This was another great novel. A must read!

I've read tons of Danielle Steel books over the years. I've liked some more than others and seriously disliked a few. I loved this book! Yes predictable after a while but so entertaining. A definite keeper!!

This book tries to portray a family which the writer seems to indicate as being dysfunctional. However, in this day and age it is such families who are normal. Steel has done a good job of creating a story where three children who stop being perfect in every way and 'act out.' Each of the children changes his or her life and Kate Morgan the mom takes it as a personal failure. The book plays out well and ends in an all's well that ends well.

A good story and a quick read. The characters were diverse, the story moved well until the 3/4 point, even though at times it is unbelievable. I found the ending was put together as almost a bail out as she had nothing more to add to the story. Predictable Danielle Steele with her family dynamics.
