A riveting new novel from Danielle Steel, whose countless number-one New York Times best sellers have made her one of America's favorite storytellers.
Heads always turned when Rose McCarthy walked into a room. Nearly six feet tall, she was ramrod straight, and impeccably put together with faultless style, long graceful legs, her snow-white hair cut in a chin-length rounded cap. Her piercing blue eyes missed nothing. She could terrify anyone with a few well-chosen, soft-spoken, eloquent words, or comfort and delight a young employee with generous praise. For 25 years, she had been the legendary editor in chief of Mode magazine. Gentle, polite, supremely competent, she ran it with an iron hand, with the ultimate grace and discretion. She was known for her excellent judgment, wise decisions that always benefitted the magazine, her dedication and love of fashion....

Disappointing in so many ways. I couldn't find a character I liked, believed or respected.
Save your $$. I wish I had.
New York magazine maven Rose McCarthy is blindsided when the latest topic of gossip on a potential cover model brings to light the affair her son-in-law is dragging her youngest daughter through in Paris. She and her other three daughters quickly rally around to love and support Nadia through the whirlwind her life has become.
Nadia is hearing advice from every direction but all she can really feel right now is devastation as the man that she loves with all of her heart tells her he's torn between still loving her and his addiction to the young starlet currently carrying his child. She has two small children who adore their father and she doesn't know how to break their hearts ... or if she even should.
I recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a drama filled read with lots of emotional upheavals and several supporting characters that lend volume to the overall story.
It was great and as usual I couldn't put it down. Read it all the way through. It was heart warming, suspenful at times and even cold. Showed the importance and value of family. Provided numerous opportunities for young people to learn about some experiences that family have and resolve. I loved it and didn't want it to end.

It's a fairytale. A fairytale where anything and everything can happen - and does. Not only good things, but horrible, unhappy and sad. But you know what, I would rather read about all this misery when it happens in beautiful surroundings, to people with lots of money. People who own a chateau in Normandie, always go 1st class when they are flying, go for weekend trips to New York, LA, London, Rome, The South of France and stop over in Paris to shop at Chanel.
In these fairytales the women are gorgeous and stylish. When flying they wear clean white jeans, t-shirt, white denim jacket and ballet flats. Out to dinner somewhere chic, they are stunning in simple black and pearls with just a hint of makeup, or no makeup at all since they don't need it (a bit irritating, but ok).
I shall not tell you about either the misery or a happy ending. There are lots of both good and bad within this frame of neverending luxury. But it sure is a joy to read about satin, silk and Hermés sandals. One simply does not wear anything but designer in a book written by Danielle Steel, the Queen of Fairytales.
I love it. Love her books. The luxury, the beauty, the houses in the Hamptons and the apartments in the 7th arrondissement or with a view to Central Park. I could tell you more but my housekeeper is off today and the sitter is near a nervous breakdown, so I have to end here.
PS) Do buy the book. It's out of this world. "Pure love. Pure Steel."
I am and have been s can for many years
