Description

From number one New York Times best-selling author Danielle Steel, Past Perfect is a spellbinding story of two families living 100 years apart who come together in time in a startling moment, opening the doors to rare friendship and major events in early 20th-century history.

Sybil and Blake Gregory have established a predictable, well-ordered Manhattan life - she as a cutting-edge design authority and museum consultant, he in high tech investments - raising their teenagers, Andrew and Caroline, and six-year-old Charlie. But everything changes when Blake is offered a dream job he can't resist as CEO of a start-up in San Francisco. He accepts it without consulting his wife and buys a magnificent, irresistibly underpriced historic Pacific Heights mansion as their new home.

Shocked by an earthquake the night they arrive, the past and present suddenly collide for them in the elegant mansion filled with tender memories and haunting portraits. The original inhabitants suddenly appear for a few brief minutes. In the ensuing days, they meet the large and lively family who lived there a century ago: distinguished Bertrand Butterfield and his gracious wife, Gwyneth; their sons Josiah and little Magnus; daughters Bettina and Lucy; formidable Scottish matriarch Augusta; and her eccentric brother, Angus. All long since dead. All very much alive in spirit - and visible to the Gregorys and no one else.

The two families are delighted to share elegant dinners and warm friendship. They have much to teach each other, as the Gregorys watch the past unfold while living their own modern-day lives. Within these enchanted rooms, it is at once 1917 and a century later, where the Gregorys realize they have been given a perfect gift - beloved friends and the wisdom to shape their own future with gratitude and grace from a fascinating past.

Past Perfect is Danielle Steel at her bewitching best, a novel for the ages. Danielle Steel has been hailed as one of the world's most popular authors, with over 650 million copies of her novels in print. Her many international best sellers include Magic, Blue, Undercover, Country, Prodigal Son, Pegasus, A Perfect Life, Power Play, Winners, 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; Pure Joy, about the dogs she and her family have loved; and the children's book Pretty Minnie in Paris.

histoire invraisemblable sans aucun intérêt.

je regrette mon crédit audio. Cette histoire est ridicule et sans aucun intérêt. première déception pour moi dans l'oeuvre de Danielle steel. le système m'oblige à mettre une étoile. Ce livre ne la vaut pas.

Whimsical

This book was very entertaining and fun for my son to listen with me--no bad language or a lot of sex. Also a new twist in a fictional story. One of the best Danielle Steele books I have read.

Starts slow but worth the wait!

Took a little time to get going but once it did I was hooked. It’s definitely a different avenue for a Danielle Steel book, but definitely a good one.

Ok but not too interesting

Ok but gets a little boring. Just not interesting to me. Her older books are the bomb. Newer, well they are ok and I am a fan so I will listener to all of them.

Interesting read

Found this to be an entertaining and interesting read. Yes it is different from her usual stories but having the comparison of 100 years ago too today a reminder of how far we have come but somethings remain the same.

I'm not sure what was the point of this story!

The best thing this book had going for it was the narration. I found the story to be trite and meaningless!

Returning this one!

best time-travel book I've ever read<br />past perfect

Past Perfect has seamless transitions between present and past. The characters are exceedingly realistic and believable. The reader wants to stay in their world forever, reveling in their joys and getting caught up in their sorrows. This is a story to reread many times, savoring Steele ' s ability to tackle any genre. The performance is nuanced and enjoyable.
