Publisher's Summary

In Danielle Steel's remarkable new novel, one of her most memorable characters comes to terms with unfinished business and long-buried truths as the mother of three very different daughters with three singular fathers.

As a young intern at an art gallery in Paris, Isabelle McAvoy meets Putnam Armstrong, wealthy, gentle, older, and secluded from the world. Isabelle's relationship with Putnam, and her time at his chateau on the Normandy coast, are the stuff of dreams. But it turns real when she becomes pregnant, for she knows that marriage is out of the question.

When Isabelle returns to New York, she enters a new relationship that she hopes will be more stable and traditional. But she soon realizes she has made a terrible mistake and again finds herself a single mother.

With two young daughters and no husband, Isabelle finally and unexpectedly finds happiness and a love that gives her a third child, a baby as happy as her beloved father. And yet, once again, life brings dramatic changes.

The three girls grow up to be very different women, and Isabelle's relationship with each of them is unique. While raising her girls alone, Isabelle also begins building a career as a successful art consultant. Then, one final turn of fate brings a past secret to light, bonds mother and daughters closer, and turns a challenge into a blessing.

Boring

This story seemed to drag on, it was dull and unexciting, I kept asking myself if there was a point to this story. I struggled to finish the book. Not one of the good ones by this author. Would have returned for credit it wasn’t purchased on sale.

It's blah but it's ok

Sometimes a simple story, with nothing extraordinary, no fireworks or super heroes is ok. If you just want to follow a woman and her family through her life experiences, that's that. I don't know if I should call it a feel good story but that's what comes to mind.

Great story!

I haven't read a Danielle Steel book in decades but needed some "light reading" for a change. I was pleasantly surprised by the depth of the story and the wonderful feeling it left me with. Fantastic performance too!

Better than chicken soup

This book was such a wonderful diversion for me during the past few days of my annoying cold. I was able to just rest and really enjoyed the audible sleep function. I could always go back a bit if I fell asleep while being read to. Again, I must say, better than chicken soup.

Predictable

Disappointed in the content of this novel as it was very predictable almost from the start...

Typical Danielle Steel

It was an easy storyline and a nice diversion from Today’s newspaper and TV headlines. Some of the detail was a little fuzzy and too much of it came together too quickly towards the end. The narration was very good. This book is like a good summer read.

Title fits the story

Enjoyed this. Narrator was good. Story was good and I didn’t completely have the ending figured out. Good story and characters. Would recommend it for sure.
