Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

Taking up where g Sins of Omission left off, Michaels's latest domestic saga brings lifelong friends Reuben and Daniel and their women full circle as the tumult of World War II descends upon?pk on Europe. In most respects, the sequel is better than its precursor, largely because the story itself is more engaging. The bestselling author is as polished above as they come in making her settings work for her, and here she uses the drama of occupied France as a backdrop for some of the book's most compelling scenes. The panache of her prose helps mitigate the fact that the main characters are wooden, puppets motivated chiefly by their creator's insistence that they keep committing the same mistakes until they stumble upon a way to put things right, as when Daniel misjudges his daughter just as he previously did his wife. Michaels's creed also demands that the children inevitably repeat the sins of their parents--allowing her little choice but to pen another installment.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Fern Michaels stands head and shoulders above any other romance writer. Her delicate descriptions of love and romance sizzle off the pages without vulgarity or obsenity. "Sins of the Flesh" was as enthralling as its predecessor "Sins of Omission" and was one of the few books that ended much too soon. I've spent years hoping for a third installment of this most captivating, refreshing, romantic, well-written saga

HASH(0xa216027c) out of 5 stars A good read May 1 2000
By Kiki Lewis - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I like saga's. I especially like them when the previous book left you thinking, and then what happened? Which Ms. Michaels did in her previous novel Sins of Omission. The plot thickens with each page turned and the characters grow richer and fuller. I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys reading solely for pleasure.

HASH(0xa2084f24) out of 5 stars WONDERFUL SECOND OF TWO-BOOK SAGA Sept. 21 2010
By Suzi - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
I enjoyed Sins of Omission and while reading had to order this second book and wish Fern Michaels had written a third. From two young servicemen to grown men, Reuben and Daniel's friendship never wavers, even though complicated by family members. From powerful lives in Hollywood to France being invaded with characters rescuing people and children, survival seems to be the theme of this novel....whether in the corporate world or private world. A surprising twist as to who Reuben really loves, and a lot of love and intrigue in this second book.

A great find. See my review for Sins of Omission. Read both books over the weekend.

World Wars, Love, Disappointment, drugs, Hollywood in the 20's and 30's.

Enjoy.

HASH(0xa1a768d0) out of 5 stars Poorly researched, poorly written donkey dung Feb. 12 2011
By Queen Mean - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
There were so many little peeves in this novel that it's hard to focus on overalls but I'll start with my favorite--every single woman in this novel had green eyes. I am going to go out on a limb and make a guess that Ms. Michaels eye color is green...talk about projecting..either that or she is for some reason obsessed with this particular eye color. Green eyes are not exactly a predominant color so when everyone and their best friend has green eyes, it's going to be noticeable, and it's annoying and lacks imagination. I realize this is a petty thing, but petty annoyances are what can totally kill a book. The history was ludicrous as well, with just badly, badly imagined scenarios and historically implausible and inaccurate occurences.

SPOILERS FOR THE ENDING BELOW

Then there's the end which is just ludicrous. So there's a manipulative, crazy underage woman that they must all figure out how to deal with and their solution is just to do ....NOTHING. That's right, in 1940's where the husband and the father is the law, with a school history of lying and manipulation and deceit to draw on, all they had to do was find a psychologist willing to say she was suffering from female hysteria and toss her in the clink. If both her father and her husband joined sides, she wouldn't have stood a chance.

I mean talk about a pathetic wishy washy ending. Not to mention, I know the kid wasn't the husbands anyway but he could have taken it from her at any time. Women didn't have a whole crapload of rights back then.

I am not saying that they would have had to actually do it, but you cannot tell me that there were no options to threaten her with rather than just throwing up their hands and going, oh she's won. What a load.
