Book Description

12 Mar 2007

A young woman's dream, an old man's gift, and the surprises that await us behind every closed door. . .

The house on the hill outside San Francisco was magnificent, built in 1923 by a wealthy man for the woman he adored. When Sarah, a perfectly sensible lawyer, walks through its empty rooms, she is drawn to the once-grand mansion in a way she cannot explain.- to a drama that first unfolded in war-torn France, and to a history she never knew she had.

Using an unexpected legacy, Sarah takes on the dilapidated house and its mysteries.

With the help of architect Jeff Parker Sarah brings the exquisite house back to life, and as one relationship shatters and another begins, she discovers a whole new future.

A novel of daring and hope, of embracing life and taking chances ...

Book Description

The restoration of a majestic old home provides the exhilarating backdrop for Danielle

Steel's sixty-sixth bestselling novel.

From the Inside Flap

The restoration of a majestic old home provides the exhilarating backdrop for Danielle Steel’s sixty-sixth bestselling novel, the story of a young woman’s dream, an old man’s gift, and the surprises that await us behind every closed door…. THE HOUSE Perched on a hill overlooking San Francisco, the house was magnificent, built in 1923 by a wealthy man for the woman he adored. For her and for this house, he would spare no expense and overlook no detail, from the endless marble floors to the glittering chandeliers. Almost a century later, with the once-grand house now in disrepair, a young woman walks through its empty rooms. Sarah Anderson, a perfectly sensible estate lawyer, is about to do something utterly out of character. An elderly client has died and left her two gifts. One is a generous inheritance. The other a priceless message: to use his money for something wonderful, something daring. And in this old house, surrounded by crumbling grandeur, Sarah knows just what it is. A respected attorney and self-described workaholic, Sarah had always lived life by the book. With a steady, if sputtering, relationship and a tiny apartment that has suited her just fine, Sarah cannot explain the force that draws her to the mansion and its history — to the story of a woman who once lived in the house then mysteriously left it, to a child who grew up there and a drama that unfolded in war-torn France . . . and to a history she never knew she had. Taking the biggest risk of her life, Sarah enlists the help of architect Jeff Parker, who shares Sarah’s passion for bringing the exquisite old house back to life. As she and Jeff work to restore the home’s every detail, as one relationship shatters and another begins, Sarah makes a series of powerful discoveries: about the true meaning of a dying man’s last gift . . . about the extraordinary legacies that are passed from generation to generation . . . and about a future she’s only just beginning to imagine. In a novel of daring and hope, of embracing life and taking chances, Danielle Steel brilliantly captures one woman’s courageous choice to pour herself into a dream —and receive its gifts in return. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent 4 Aug 2007
By Mrs. A. M. Chadwick VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback
Well Done Danielle, I was beginning to wonder after some of the latest books you'd written if you'd lost your touch as not many books after 2002 have I found enjoyable to read, as in some of her new books her style has altered a great deal from the older books, but this book stands out it's more like her books from the early days. :-)

A lovely story about a lawyer who falls in love with an old house. When it comes up on the market she buys it and employs an architect to renovate it. Sarah is in love with a real rat but, enough of that, I'll let you find out for yourself as I don't want to spoil it.

As the story unfolds you'll find everything is set around three main characters Sarah, Phil and Jeff, you'll also find out the story of the house.

I can honesty say this book was worth every penny, and I know it's one I'd enjoy reading again.

If you've never read any Danielle Steel books this is a great one to start with, otherwise have a look at her older novels which are great, (You can find reviews on all the Danielle Steel books I've read so far).

1.0 out of 5 stars Depressing and unfulfilling 4 Oct 2001
Format:Paperback
Having just lost a loving husband of 16 years, not to mention a devoted dad, in a most traumatic way and then within months to find new happiness with another was a bit much to swallow, especially considering what a family unit they were. I thought it would have been more believable if another year or so had elapsed in order for her and the children to deal with their grief. Unbelievably, everything had to be crammed into one year.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing!!!!! 17 Jan 2002
By A Customer
Format:Hardcover
I have read alot of books by different authors and this must be one of the best. I usually take a couple of weeks to read a book but i read this in just two days. It gives hope to people, saying when your at your lowest you can still be happy. even though it is only fiction it gave me hope, i really felt as though i was in the book and knew all the characters personally. A brilliantly written book.

2.0 out of 5 stars A book rushed out to appease the publishers 11 Oct 2001
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
Danielle Steel at her worst. Very shallow and morbid story with suddenly everything turning out to be fine again. Silly errors i.e. 'she awoke from a sleepless night' and 'she felt like a wind up doll who's battery had finally died'...confirm my view that it was a boring project to write for the author. Very very similar to Bittersweet and predictable after the first couple of chapters. Very disappointing!

5.0 out of 5 stars I couldn't put it down 19 Aug 2001
Format:Paperback
This was my first Danielle Steel read and it was fantastic. The story had me laugh and cry and the way Liz's feelings are explained is really good. I found myself reading when I didn't even have time and in the end it only took me 2days to read. I would recommend it to anyone even if they havn't read Danielle Steel before. I will definetly read more of her books and have already started Bittersweet.

2.0 out of 5 stars Mildly entertaining 19 Feb 2009
Format:Paperback
Full of simplistic and repetitive writing, unengaging two-dimensional characters and an almost total lack of any dramatic or sexual tension. The plot, such as it is, moves at a snail's pace. This was my first taste of Danielle Steel and it certainly didn't leave me wanting more.
