This was the first Danielle Steel I've ever read. I've kind of shied away from her writing all these years because I just couldn't bring myself to read "that kind" of writing. I started the book skeptical and I found that the writing could have been better (I rolled my eyes at plenty of her adjectives and metaphors), but the characters and the story kept me reading. In the end, I was disgusted by Brad, admired Page, and fell in love with all the teens and children in the book (especially Andy and Bjorn). So while the writing was mediocre, the characters were very entertaining. I would consider reading another Danielle Steel book again, only if the characters are as enjoyable as these in this book.

Robin I know exactly what you mean. I've always thought of her as being an author that gets a lot of hype and is loved by "the masses" - growing up my mom always described stuff that was very popular while not necessarily being good as appealing to the masses. So I've always avoided reading her. Shallow maybe, but there you have it.

April Vaughn who is Trygve? this character's name is mentioned too much in the story and no one has yet told me how he or she is,ugh! not gonna read it, the character's name is too hard to pronounce and the name gets on my ever loving nerves!!!
