YET ANOTHER TOUCHING TALE, !!!!

Yet another touching tale, This book bringing history to life as only Danielle Steel knows how to, making the harrowing events of WW2 prisoner camps a memory that we should not be allowed to forget or ignore. Love can conquer the death and destruction of families and does so in this amazing creation. Thanks DS

In his fathers footsteps.

You are pulled into this story from the beginning. Another excellent book by Danielle Steel. The narrator on this is excellent with his accents for the people in the book.

This is a chronology not a character story

Really disappointed having read many of Danielle Steels books in the past and loving them. This was a chronology and there was very little point to it and little character development. The first part was better and the author should have stayed there and made a go of that.

Lovely Family Saga

Makes me reflect on what makes for a solid family foundation. Is there really such a thing as a soul mate?

This story gives hope. I totally enjoyed it and could not stop listening.
