The Gift: A Novel Kindle Edition
|New from||Used from|
The time is the 1950s, when life was simpler, people still believed in dreams, and family was, very nearly, everything. The place is a small midwestern town with a high school and a downtown, a skating pond and a movie house. And on a tree-lined street in the heartland of America, an extraordinary set of events begins to unfold. And gradually what seems serendipitous is tinged with purpose. A happy home is shattered by a child's senseless death. A loving marriage starts to unravel. And a stranger arrives—a young woman who will touch many lives before she moves on. She and a young man will meet and fall in love. Their love, so innocent and full of hope, helps to restore a family's dreams. And all of their lives will be changed forever by the precious gift she leaves them.
The Gift, Danielle Steel's thirty-third best-selling work, is a magical story told with stunning simplicity and power. It reveals a relationship so moving it will take your breath away. And it tells a haunting and beautiful truth about the unpredictability—and the wonder—of life.

When I was graduated from high school, my parents told me that if I wanted to find my birth parents, they would support me in my search. I never took them up on their offer and, even after their deaths in 2006 and 2008, I still have never looked for my birth parents. I have only one reason to ever want to find either of them, or my siblings, and that would to find out about family medical history. However, with today's technology with "23 AND ME" and "ANCESTRY.COM", I can find out all of the information that I need to know.
Now you understand in small part why this book was "The Gift" to me. I just can't believe it took me 24 years to find and read it!! Thank you, Danielle Steel!!
