Product Description

Book Description

A harrowing journey into the heart of America's hidden shame

From the Back Cover

A harrowing journey into the dark side of childhood.

From her secret perch at the top of the stairs, seven-year-old Gabriella watches the guests arrive at her parents' lavish Manhattan home. The click, click, click of her mother's high heels strikes terror into her heart. Her world is a confusing blend of terror, betrayal and pain, and she knows that there is no safe place for her to hide.

When her parents' marriage collapses, her mother abandons her to a convent, where Gabriella's battered body and soul begin to mend amid the quiet safety and hushed rituals of the nuns. And when she grows into womanhood, young Father Joe Connors comes into her life. Like Gabriella, Joe is haunted by the pain of his childhood, and with her he takes the first steps towards healing. But their relationship leads to disaster as Joe must choose between the priesthood and Gabriella. She struggles to survive on her own in New York, where she seeks to escape through her writing, until eventually she is able to find forgiveness, freedom from guilt, and healing.

In this work of daring and compassion, Danielle Steel has created a vivid portrait of an abused child's broken world which will shock and move you to your very soul.

The first Danielle Steel book i have ever read and I have to say I thoroughly enjoyed it!! I had always thought she was a slushy author but this book tackles tough subjects, such as child abuse, suicide and alcoholism. All about the life of a little girl who was born into a wealthy family, who did not ever love her and her journey to find where she belongs. It travels in a way that is emotive and just reading it in places made me want to cry. I shall definitely be reading more Danielle Steel books in the future.

As a 14 year old l was advised against reading this book but l know this book will stay with me for the rest of my life. It's haunting early chapters made the book a morbid yet enticing read. The protrayal of the characters and the plot development were nothing short of precise in every angle. The description and word choice alone made the book exciting and unpredictable for everyone from all back grounds and age groups.

Brilliant. I want to go out and buy every book ever written by her. This book is so far the best I have ever read by Danielle Steel. I was sobbing after the first few chapters and couldn't put the book down. No other book has moved me to tears as much as this. Danielle Steel certainly knows how to pull at the heartstrings.

A fantastic book - one of her best.
I am a fan and have read all her books - most of them more than once. I sobbed at this and will gladly await more.

Don't be far away from a packet of tissues when reading this book! I'm not really a crier and this book had me going from the first chapter! A gripping tale of one girls life... a story that can't fail to touch your heart. I enjoyed very much as my first Danielle Steel adventure.

Format: Paperback
The main character turns out to be incredibly real to you and be warned this book will drain you of emotions and will probably be water damaged from many tears you will cry on her behalf. It made me wonder how these monsters can call themselves parents. The book and character is incredible, in a way it made me wish Dannielle believed in sequels as the ending is not satisfying in as much that it leaves you wanting more and wishing you could know all is well with her and that her life takes a turn for the better and she finds what she deserves. Be warned this will upset you it is so real, however it also makes you scream for every victory she manages and you will fall in love with her as you would with your own children, definatley brings out the mothering instinct.

Format: Paperback
This is the first book I have read by Danielle Steel and I already think that she is a great writer. She really captures the heart of the reader to make them feel for Gabreille. This tragic story tells us the life of young Gabreille. First Gabreille had been severley beaten by her mother and was blamed for their parents marriage collapsing. Then she was sent to a convent where she found her first love. This love was then tragically taken away form her. Gabreille then goes out into the world and finds a job working at a book store and sells her writing to the local paper. I think that this has to be the best book I have read in ages! It was so real, so heart breaking and I just couldn't put it down.
