Over half of Danielle Steel's book "The Duchess" seemed rather preposterous. Of course when one realizes she is trying to make a point about inheritance laws in days of yore one is inclined to forgive Steel. The book does become somewhat interesting and moving towards the end, and at the risk of being a spoiler I'll have to say I enjoyed the twist of fate which gave "the Duchess's" brother his just desserts. Not a bad read.
