In her powerful memoir His Bright Light, number-one New York Times best-selling author Danielle Steel opened her heart to share the devastating story of the loss of her beloved son. In A Gift of Hope, she shows us how she transformed that pain into a campaign of service that enriched her life beyond what she could imagine.
For 11 years, Danielle Steel took to the streets with a small team to help the homeless of San Francisco. She worked anonymously, visiting the "cribs" of the city's most vulnerable citizens under cover of darkness, distributing food, clothing, bedding, tools, and toiletries. She sought no publicity for her efforts and remained anonymous throughout. Now she is speaking up to bring attention to their plight.
In this unflinchingly honest and deeply moving memoir, the famously private author talks publicly for the first time about her work among the most desperate members of our society. She offers achingly acute portraits of the people she met along the way - and issues a heartfelt call for more effective action to aid this vast, deprived population. Determined to supply the homeless with the basic necessities to keep them alive, she ends up giving them something far more powerful: a voice.
By turns candid and inspirational, Danielle Steel's A Gift of Hope is a true act of advocacy and love.

Though this is a Novel attempting to express the story of homeless people it is reality which should be addressed so people are no longer looking the other way but attempting to face things head on and form such committees to make the world a better place to live inside with warm clothes & warm beds to sleep well & dining rooms to partake in healthy foods and be grateful for selfless individuals. Instead of living a lonely existence, try living a better life!
One more question: Why not use her experiences in one of her novels instead of writing pages and pages on how wonderful she was?
