Product Description

From Amazon

When events conspire to irrevocably alter Deanna Duras's comfortable but empty life, Pandora's box can never again be closed. Over the course of a single summer, Deanna discovers her husband is cheating on her, begins a successful painting career, loses her 16-year-old daughter Pilar in a tragic motorcycle accident, and meets the love of her life, Ben Thompson--a highly respected art dealer who plans and executes a phenomenally profitable show for her. Only a creation of Danielle Steel's can accomplish so much in such a short time (as the rest of the world watches reruns on television!). Matters are complicated further when Deanna discovers she is pregnant; is the baby her husband's or her lover's? At summer's end, Deanna will have to decide between returning to her old life or following her heart. --Alison Trinkle

Product Description

Deanna was eighteen when she married a handsome  Frenchman, attorney Marc-Edouard Duras. Now, at  thirty-seven, she should be happy with Marc, her elegant home  in San Francisco, and their teenage daughter,  Pilar. But one summer changes it all when she  realizes her failing marriage is a trap she must escape.

I have been reading Danielle Steel's books for over 15 years now. Sometimes they do get a bit "all the same" with most of the characters being important, successful, beautiful people who live in "stately homes" and wear "important jewels and furs". Sometimes I think the characters are more about what they have then who they are. Despite this, I always enjoy her books - they are easy to read, romantic and make you forget about everyday life for a couple of hours while engrossed in the book. Personally I think her earlier books are more enjoyable and get more involved in the characters than some of the later books she has written. I enjoyed this book ... a woman (Deanna) who was never appreciated by her family for anything that she did but managed to continue with her love of painting and make a success of herself and her life without her uncaring husband. Showed us that you can do anything if you just believe in yourself. Loved the ending too ....

This book was about a woman who never sees her husband because hes always away on business. Deanna is a really good painter, but her husband insists she paint for fun, that she didn't need a career and one in painting was for second rate people. At the begining of summer Deanna meets a art dealer who thinks her paintings are wonderfull and wants to sell them in art gallerys. In the mean time they fall in love ... and make a promise that the relationship will be over at summers end. Deanna feels guilty at first, but the more they are together, she forgets about her husband... and the more they begin to wish the summer will never end. Later Deanna finds out that her husband has been having a affair for years. I left out a considerable amount of the book. This book has tragedy, love, lies, decite and much, much more. I would definetly recommend this book!

This is the first Danielle Steele book that I've read and it will definitely not be the last. I couldn't put it down. By the time I got to chapter 25, I was wishing that I could read faster. I couldn't wait to find out what was going to happen to the characters. I was kind of torn between 5 and 4 stars. I decided 5 stars because after 2 weeks after finsihing the book, I'm still thinking about it. I can't stop thinking about Ben and Deanna. Why I even entertained a 4 rating is that this story involves adultery. In the beginning of the book, it's quite clear what's going to happen and I didn't like that there was betrayal involved. As I continued to read, I fell in love with Ben. It took a while to like Deanna because an affair is still an affair but then I eventually started to feel for her. Overall, I recommend this book to anyone who likes a good love story.
