I was not sure whether to buy this latest addition to Danielle Steel collection, in the end curiosity got the better of me and I am glad I bought it.
This is a heart warming tale of a woman whose husband and son died in a plane crash and she was left with her daughter and a guilt complex the size of mount Rushmore. She would not let herself live or love again. Then a miracle happened; while on holiday on a beach front house in Safe harbour, her daughter made friends with an artist, a kind handsome man, who was also nursing a broken heart and in time he became friends with her mum. Through pure friendship and loving support he dragged her out of the abyss of self imposed guilt and grief, and encouraged her to live her life and tap into the reserve of the enormous love she had in her heart to help people and thereby help herself. But the story line was not that simple, there were a lot of life's questions raised - like how well did she know this husband whose loss she refused to accept, how well did she know her best friend?
This movie deals with a lot of life's questions, betrayal, forgiveness, learning to trust and love again, learning that we often don't know anybody very well, that we as human beings have a great capacity to love and to rise up in the face of adversity and grief.
Will I watch it again, you betcha. This is one for the keeper shelf, you will be glad you bought this, I recommend.
