"The sun beamed down on Melissa Henderson's shining dark hair, pinned up on her head in a loose knot, as sweat ran down her face, and the muscles in her long, lithe arms were taut with effort as she worked. She was lost in concentration, sanding a door of the house in the Berkshire Mountains in Massachusetts that had been her salvation. She had bought it four years before. It had been weather-beaten, shabby and in serious need of repair when she found it. No one had lived there for over forty years, and the house creaked so badly when she walked through it, she thought the floorboards might give way. She'd only been in the house for twenty minutes when she turned to the realtor and the rep from the bank who were showing it to her, and said in a low, sure voice, "I'll take it." She knew she was home the minute she walked into the once beautiful, hundred-year-old Victorian home. It had ten acres around it, with orchards, enormous old trees, and a stream running through the property in the foothills of the Berkshire Mountains. The deal closed in sixty days, and she'd been hard at work ever since. It had almost become an obsession as she brought the house back to life, and came alive herself. It was her great love and the focus of every day"--

this is one of Danielle Steel best books. Interesting from beginning to end.

This book had far more substance than most of Steel's recent books. Steel has used two plots, combined them and told a remarkable tale. The novel is about Melissa who loses a son to cancer, a husband to divorce, and who, we learn has lost a daughter as a teenager. She has also lost a beloved sister to a convent. All of these come to play in a well-woven story which is hard to put down.

I highly recommend this book. The author touched on two main important issues, excellantly told and orchestrated. Best Steel book since Blue. I hope everyone enjoys this novel as much as I did. Thank you Danielle.
