Publisher's Summary

From number one New York Times best-selling author Danielle Steel comes the gripping story of a woman who loses everything - her husband, her home, her sense of self and safety, and her freedom.

Sydney Wells' perfect life with her wealthy, devoted husband vanishes when he dies suddenly in an accident. Widowed at 49, she discovers he has failed to include her in his will. With Andrew's vicious daughters in control of his estate, and no home or money, Sydney finds a job in fashion, despite her own designer daughters' warnings. Naive, out of her element, and alone in a world of shady international deals and dishonest people, she is set up by her boss and finds herself faced with criminal prosecution.

What happens when you lose everything? Husband, safety, protection, money, and reputation gone, faced with prison, she must rebuild her own life from the bottom to the top again, with honor, resourcefulness, and dignity. Sydney finds herself, as well as courage and resilience. Taking life by the horns, she revives her own career as a talented designer, from New York to Hong Kong, risking all in an exotic, unfamiliar world. She is determined to forge a new life she can be proud of.

Doubtfully a Danielle Steele

I could not finish this book. The narrator trailed off at the end of his sentences and was very difficult to hear. The story itself was repetitive to the point of being very annoying, as the author told us the same things several times over. I finally gave up on hoping that this book was going to get better.

It was just ok

This booked was a typical DS. The tragic story of the rich and beautiful. I can’t say it held my interest but made a long drive a bit more interesting. #Audible1

My first DS book but not my last!

☆☆☆☆Stars. This was such a relatable story and I really liked all the characters. I did get a bit annoyed with all the repetition and a few times thought I somehow went backwards in the book. Overall I enjoyed it. Thanks #Audible1

Fall from Grace

A fascinating story of love in the fashion industry. Starts with a tragedy and develops into a story of triumph.

More twists and turns than a bowlful of spagetti

Loved this story. Strong female characters, enough tragedy to make you cry, the lead character just has to figure it out over and over again. What would you do if you were used to living a wealthy, entitled lifestyle. Then you suddenly lost it all. I loved the twists in this story.

Dependable Read

So what do I mean by my title? Danielle Steele’s books are my go to when I want entertainment. Her books are always good and the storylines are predictable. Sometimes that what i need in a book. Fall from Grace was a good read and I’d recommend it.

A sequel in the future?

This was a very enjoyable DS book!
The way it was written made you care for the characters very much. The ending left the door wide open for a 2nd book about the family. I hope Ms Steele will consider writing a sequel to this. I'd like to find out if Sydney and Bob get married in the future.

Audible book isn't easy to listen to

What disappointed you about Fall from Grace?

I didn't like that a man's voice was the story of a woman. I just couldn't get into it.

What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

I didn't get to the end. It is very hard for me to listen to this book. I will be returning it.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Luis Moreno?

A woman.

What character would you cut from Fall from Grace?

I don't know because I couldn't get into the book due to the voice.

Any additional comments?

I love reading Danielle Steel books and own almost every one she has written in hard back and some of the older ones in paperback. I collect them. I love her work but I was very disappointed in the voice given to this book. Perhaps I would have been able to listen to it if it were a voice of a woman since it's a woman's story.
