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

Now, at  thirty-seven, she should be happy with Marc, her elegant home  in San Francisco, and their teenage daughter,  Pilar.

This is the first Danielle Steel book that I have ever read. Of all the others that I have truly enjoyed, this is the one I keep coming back to. Steel writes an amazing story of a woman who loses what she never really had to gain only something that dreams are made of. Her philandering husband cares only for himself and his daughter as he pushes Deanna away. Deanna in return learns quickly that the only person she will ever have in her life ever again is a blessing that had been bestowed upon her: Ben Thompson. A captivating story reminding us to open and follow our hearts and to never look back only to regret. This is a book that you will come back to more than once in your journey reading all the great and wonderful Danielle Steel books.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pretty Good Book! Aug. 19 2003
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I enjoyed this book very much. I'm surprised that this one wasn't made into a TV-Movie (i.e. Once in a Lifetime, The Ring, No Greater Love, Fine Things), but I still liked it. Deanna was very realistic. She was in a marriage that was slowly falling apart, and the only thing that was keeping it together was her daughter, Pilar, who died as a result of a motorcycle accident. She met Ben Thompson and found fullfillment with him; Marc-Edouard was already having an affair with a woman named Chantal. I thought that he was a jerk for doing that to Deanna. But when it was all said and done and when I finished reading the book, Deanna had discovered that she was pregnant and that the baby was Ben's. At last she could have a happy life with someone. Keep up the good work, Danielle!!

I really really hate that she uses the same names in a lot of her books. It drives me insane. She is always using, Grace, Liz, Andrew..but dont get me wrong, I love danielle steel's books more that anything, but come one™, can we just get a little insee weensee bit more creative and think of some different names for her books? please? Im sure that other danielle steel readers will feel the same.

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved it! Dec 8 2002
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This is the first Danielle Steele book I've read and it will definitely not be my last. I really enjoyed reading this book. By the time I got to chapter 25, I was wishing that I could read faster because I couldn't wait to find out what was going to happen. I was torn between 5 and 4 stars. I chose 5 stars because it has been 2 weeks since I finished the book and I'm still thinking about it. Why I even entertained 4 stars is because the characters committed adultery. From the very begining you can tell that this was going to happen and I didn't like that betrayal was involved. As I continued to read the book, I fell in love with Ben. It took a while to like Deanna because an affair is still an affair but I enventually started to feel for her. Overall, I recommend this to anyone who likes a good love story.
