    Description

    Perched on a hill overlooking San Francisco, the house was magnificent, built in 1923 by a wealthy man for the woman he adored. For her and for this house, he would spare no expense and overlook no detail, from the endless marble floors to the glittering chandeliers. Almost a century later, with the once-grand house now in disrepair, a young woman walks through its empty rooms. Sarah Anderson, a perfectly sensible estate lawyer, is about to do something utterly out of character. An elderly client has died and left her two gifts. One is a generous inheritance. The other, a priceless message: to use his money for something wonderful, something daring. And in this old house, surrounded by crumbling grandeur, Sarah knows just what it is.

    A respected attorney and self-described workaholic, Sarah had always lived life by the book. With a steady, if sputtering, relationship and a tiny apartment that has suited her just fine, Sarah cannot explain the force that draws her to the mansion and its history, to the story of a woman who once lived in the house, then mysteriously left it, to a child who grew up there, and a drama that unfolded in war-torn France, and to a history she never knew she had.

    Taking the biggest risk of her life, Sarah enlists the help of architect Jeff Parker, who shares Sarah's passion for bringing the exquisite old house back to life. As she and Jeff work to restore the home's every detail, as one relationship shatters and another begins, Sarah makes a series of powerful discoveries: about the true meaning of a dying man's last gift, about the extraordinary legacies that are passed from generation to generation, and about a future she's only just beginning to imagine.

    In a novel of daring and hope, of embracing life and taking chances, Danielle Steel brilliantly captures one woman's courageous choice to pour herself into a dream, and receive its gifts in return.

    Enjoyable

    There were quite a few repetitive statements in this book. Predictable but a good storyline.

    so slow

    I found this book to be very slow. I was able to listen to 7 hours but that's enough. The plot never progresses. Girl is being mentally abused and she knows it. Boyfriend is a jerk. Wants to end relationship but doesn't want to. Now, after 7 hours something should happen but it's still the same old abuse, anger, back to square one. I found myself thinking "oh please get past the weekend and on with the story". The subplot, being the house, is pretty cool, but too little of that, too much angst, no solutions or progress.

    If all of her books are like this I'm not buying any more.

    Predictable live story

    The story takes a bit long to get going. The plot is quite predictable and doesnt leave much to the imagination

    Beautiful story

    I enjoyed this story. Beautiful. It was a perfect narration of a matriarch story of love. It is easy to dismiss the selfish characters who could not give love when reading but in real life we easily excuse their characters not believing you deserve better

    Wow

    I felt myself getting stupider as I listened to this book. The characters were vapid and so painfully perdictable. The writing was insipid. If this was food, it would fall into the fast food category. It would perhaps be a slightly squashed hamburger left in the bin too long.

    The house sounded like the most beautiful place. very clever story. It moved from a place that represented such disappointment to a home that brought everyone together. great story.

    GREAT BOOK!!

    I listen to this out loud at work and I work at a reception desk. It was a great book and I loved it. It was very well read and definitely worth the time and money.
