    3. I d say that this book was mainly directed towards teens I thought this book was very knowledgeable and interesting I loved how Steele portrayed the idea that there is a reason for everyone who enters your life, and there is also a reason for their leaving Also that not everyone is meant to be a part of your life forever, but some are only there to bring a gift, not saying what that gift might be.

    4. As I was perusing the Rockridge library in search of a romance novel for my month of trash, I felt unexpectedly out of place turning the revolving paperback romance shelves, like I had found one of the many hidden exits from well adjusted, socially accepted sanity into the hazy fringe This, I felt, was taboo Which is exactly what this month was supposed to be about But I had a mission, and that mission was to find Danielle Steel I was a little disappointed to discover her shelved with the hardco [...]

    10. It was a great story in my opinion on how this family overcomes misfortune that seem impossible to overcome It shows how the love of a stranger is sometimes kinder than the love of a family member What i like most of all was the fact that the story took place in 1950s where what the brave young girl did and acted was seen as shameful and now most young girls have done what she has and worst and now the way girl acted in the book seem to be how girls now a days are As i was reading this book to m [...]

    12. It was really sad in the beginning because Annie died, and I was literally crying I loved Tommy and Meribeth s love story, I also liked that Tommy wanted to marry her even though she was having some else s baby But I didn t liked the fact that she didn t wanted to keep her own baby, I was quite angry with her when I was reading the book But other than that I LOVED IT

    13. Genul de carte foarte usor de citit destul de previzibila, dar cu un parcurs placut Ma temeam ca finalul o sa fie ieftin si siropos ca au trait fericiti pana la adanci batraneti , dar nu a fost, motiv pentru care i am acordat o stea in plus Parca ar fi scrisa pentru adolescenti si n ar fi deloc o idee rea daca ar citi o mai multi tineri Sunt cateva lectii tratate foarte interesant si pentru cei care au minte sa priceapa, ar putea fi chiar educativa Daca esti genul care se transpune in pielea per [...]

    15. This was an easy read The story was cute and heartwarming The writing was very story driven and by that I mean there was a lot of she did this and he said that and they went here but not as much descriptive details about the surroundings as many other books I read have The story was enjoyable to read, and had some great lessons in it, but it wasn t one of those stories that I couldn t put down I do wish there was a sequel, because I m wondering if the main characters kept their promise to each o [...]

    16. OK, I will admit it Danielle Steele is a bit predicatble By the second chapter I had guessed at the ending but reading the story and getting there was great This is a total tear jerker I would love a follow up story to see what happens with Tommy and Maribeth in the future.

    22. This is a feel good romance novel starring 1950 s teens as the main characters I struggled with whether the plot seemed realistic or not Things do seem to iron out just a little too well More importantly, it does repeatedly convey a strong message there is a reason that people enter and leave your life Not everyone is meant to stay a part of your life forever Some are only there to bring a gift, and in this case, it s an infant It would be interesting to read a sequel to this book, set in the 19 [...]

    24. I chose to read this book based off a quote I stumbled upon in my search for inspiration about losing love ones Unbeknownst to me, I entered the rainbows and sunshine realm of Danielle Steel s romance fiction, suffered immensely, and waited longingly for the salvation of the last page This book was repetitive, boring and downright clich.
