Welcome to Memory Lane Monday!
This is a feature of unforgettable books I have read in times past which have not had the chance to be reviewed on this blog as I read them a long time ago. Lets’ call them my personal classics. I will be featuring several of my favorites and I hope you will be interested to read and enjoy some as I have.
This week’s pick is…
Prior to reading this book, I had read at least two books by the author but this was the book that made me fall head over heels with her. The story spans across three generations and is so captivating that it is one of the few stories I have ever read that remain ingrained in my mind.
Of course, Danielle Steel always tell stories that bring tears to your eyes and this one was not an exception so even as I highly recommend this book, keep your tissue book handy.
When Sam Walker returned from the front lines of World War II, bringing with him his exquisite French bride, no one could have imagined that their fairytale love would end in such a shattering tragedy. Nine-year-old Hilary, the eldest of the Walker children, clung desperately to her two sisters: five-year-old Alexandra and baby Megan. However, before the year was out, they too would be painfully wrenched from her tender arms. Cut off from every loving warmth, Hilary swore she would one day track down the man who had destroyed her family, and find her beloved sisters again. But could they risk everything to confront a dark, forgotten past?
John Chapman, lawyer, prestigious, private investigator – chosen to find the sisters – embarks on a labyrinthine trail which leads him to Paris, New York, Boston and Connecticut, knowing that at some time in their lives, the three sisters must face each other – and the final, most devastating secret of all .
Danielle Steel has been hailed as one of the world’s bestselling authors, with almost a billion copies of her novels sold. Her many international bestsellers include All That Glitters, Royal, Daddy’s Girls, The Wedding Dress, The Numbers Game, Moral Compass, Spy, and other highly acclaimed novels. She is also the author of His Bright Light, the story of her son Nick Traina’s life and death; A Gift of Hope, a memoir of her work with the homeless; Expect a Miracle, a book of her favorite quotations for inspiration and comfort; Pure Joy, about the dogs she and her family have loved; and the children’s books Pretty Minnie in Paris and Pretty Minnie in Hollywood.
