Publisher's Summary

In Danielle Steel’s riveting novel, three women raised by their father on a sprawling California ranch now confront difficult truths about their past.

Decades ago, after the death of his wife, Texas ranch hand JT Tucker took his three small daughters to California to start a new life. With almost no money, a will of iron, and hard work, he eventually built the biggest ranch in California. But when he dies suddenly at the age of 64, the ranch is inherited by his three daughters - each of them finding it impossible to believe that this larger-than-life figure is gone from their lives. 

JT’s relationship with each daughter was entirely different. Caroline, the youngest and most reserved, was overlooked by her father for her entire life and fled to become a wife, mother, and writer in Marin County. Gemma, his declared favorite, sought out Hollywood glamour and success and became a major television star. Kate, the eldest, stayed at home with her father to do his bidding as a ranch hand, without thanks or praise, forsaking marriage and a family of her own for the love of him. 

Now, upon JT’s death, the paper trail he leaves behind begins to reveal much more than the three sisters ever guessed about who he really was. It will turn their world upside down, and each of them must grapple with a new reality, strengthening their relationships with one another and discovering who they are now as grown women, in spite of him. 

Set against the magnificent backdrop of the West and the drama of a family in turmoil, Daddy’s Girls is the story of three remarkable women and their unique bond to each other - the daughters of a complex, many-faceted, domineering father who left his mark on each of them.

Boring!

I simply could not get into this book! D J Miller is a fine narrator, though. I just thought the story was a sleeper.

What’s the problem?

I don’t know if I will spend anymore money on DS books. She has always been one of my favorite authors, but lately I’m very concerned about her. Is she getting Alzheimer’s or dementia? I started noticing a couple of years ago that she repeats herself often or says the same thing in a different way. I feel like her books would only be half as long if all the redundant lines were taken out. And what the heck is wrong with the editor? This is something that should be easily caught. It’s too bad because her stories are usually so good.

Food for the soul

Before reading this book I hadnt bought a D. steel novel since last year sometime. I added some new authors to my list and was off exploring them. This book showed up in my recommendations. This was a good one! The back drop was a ranch the book explained nuisances of ranch life but not too much. The title made me expect something about a spoiled kid but it was nothing about that. It was about sisters, family, not giving up , forgiveness and reinventing yourself and trying new things. Bonus information personal money hardships...and overcoming. This was a good book.. I want sisters😂

Not for Me.

I haven't read a Danielle Steel book in probably 20 years. The concept of this book sparked my interested b/c of the setting and it the story line description kind of reminded me of another book by another author. I love horses, ranch scenes and clean romance so I thought I would give this a chance. It was an okay story. It just felt like the author repeated herself a lot, chapter and chapter. I know there are some Steel fans out there but I guess I am just not one of them. It's an okay book and a very quick read or listen if you are using audio book.

Enough interest to keep you on it

Narrator lacked. Reading too fast and missing important pauses. Also, there was a LOT of repetition in the story. My first Danielle Steel book and quite disappointed. I expected more.

Predictable

Predictable and corny. Narrator sounds like he's reading to children. Almost condescending. Should have been read by a woman.
