Just like Hope had we sometimes get trapped in the webs that other people create to destroy us sometimes. There's many people like Hope who give themselves up completely without pretext to others and yet theres evil souls that take advantage in the most foul ways.
Thankfully Hope realized with help what was wrong and made a run for her life, but we also know that not everyone are that lucky or have the courage to do what she did.
Danielle Steel continues to be my favorite artist.
I loved this book.
The characters of Hope and Finn were just not believable at all. I know I didn't form any kind of attachment at all to Hope or Finn which made this story even less believable. No woman would ever stay with a man as long as she did. He showed signs of being a sociopath in the early part of the book, then we had to endure waiting and waiting and waiting while Hope pondered, considered and wondered what on earth she should do next. He would slam her against the wall and then she'd tell him she loved him two hours later? I think not. There was no thread of a realistic human experience. A reader wants to root for the character(s) but in this story, by the end, I didn't care what happened to either of them. That has never happened in any book I've ever read. Literally 90% of the book was about Finn's Sociopathic behavior with no character development of any other except Hope and Finn. It was torture. Then it felt like two seconds before the end of the book, she suddenly hints that a life with this briefly introduced male character and his daughters is going to be happily ever after for Hope? Hope goes through absolute hell, goes to India to find herself, does it in a heartbeat, comes back home and jumps right into a new relationship 5 minutes after returning home? They sail off into the sunset and BAM! the book is finished? Just really strange. It felt like a rushed ending and certainly left me feeling cheated. Several times I considered shutting the book on CD off and just forgetting the whole thing, but when you pay a fair amount of money for a book on CD, you want to at least give it your all.
Choose another Danielle Steele book. This one isn't worth the money. An all around bad experience for me.
