I enjoyed Sins of Omission and while reading had to order this second book and wish Fern Michaels had written a third. From two young servicemen to grown men, Reuben and Daniel's friendship never wavers, even though complicated by family members. From powerful lives in Hollywood to France being invaded with characters rescuing people and children, survival seems to be the ...more

"When Reuben Tarz and Daniel Bishop met, they were hardly more than boys, brought together by their connection to beautiful, worldly Marchioness Michelene Fonsard, known to all as Madame Mickey. Twenty years later, Reuben is a Hollywood mogul and Daniel has become a renowned Washington D.C. lawyer. Life has rewarded both with riches, success, and beautiful wives, if not always contentment.

Out of the blue, an urgent telephone call from Mickey summons Daniel to France to rescue Philippe, the son R

Recommends it for: Anyone who likes books that are more realistic than just 'happily ever after'.
Recommended to Cali by: My mom
I liked that this book (and the first one) covered a period of 20+ years so A LOT happens. I also like that none of the characters are perfect (a few did some horrible things) yet I still wanted them to get their happening ending. The only thing I was disappointed with was the ending (at least in part). Some things get resolved but other are left open. But life goes on and if the author tried to wrap up every storyline then the books would never end.

Excellent book. It was pretty long but she had several different things going on at once. It is well worth the read, it's not like it ever gets boring along the way, in fact quite the opposite, you just can't wait to see what's going to happen. YOu go through it seems all your emothions along the way, you cry, you laugh, you get so mad you want to scream. It's just an overall good book, I would reccommend it to all.

What can I say. This book follows Sins of Omission but the storyline is so 'out there' that I lost all respect for the characters and what goes on. The only saving feature is the storyline and descriptions of France and the Resistance fighters in WWII. Once again this book is very wordy. I persevered and finished but that's all I can say.

The book was a good continuation of the first. The only thing I did not like was, I was hoping to find out what happens with their son and his wife. I felt like I was left hanging. Fern Michaels made me laugh, cry and be mad. She brought the a part of war that you usually do not hear. Good book.

Although this book stared off slow, it was a most interesting read. Unusual in its style, it made me nostalgic for books in my past. It is certainly unpredictable and full of plots. Recommended as a good read.

It was an entertaining book but did not like the ending, but I guess i will have to read the next one in the series.

Merged review:

A great story once again. I am looking forward to reading the final book in the series.

I loved this book. I laughed, I cried, I got frustruated, I got angry. All in all, I truly enjoyed this book and the first one Sins of Ommission. Wonderful story. I felt as if I were there. Well done, Fern.

Loved this one as well. Great sequel to the first book. I didn't know there was a sequel and was delighted to read more about the characters and find out how it all ended.

In my opinion, one of Fern Michael's best. Didn't realize that this was book #2 of a series and might have enjoyed #1 but I feel that I'd be going backwards now....

I got sick of the unrequited (well-abandoned) love and horrible relationships in the first book, so stopped reading this one part way through as I could see it was going to be more of the same.

I enjoyed the mix of World War I and II, joined with Hollywood of the 40's. Thought the ending was blasé.

Again, it was very hard to like the people in this series which affects my opinion of the book. Glad this one is done.

While the language and characters are a little corny at times, the plot is terrific- a page-turner!

Growing up in Hastings, Pennsylvania, I was called Ruth. I became Mary when I entered the business world where first names were the order of the day. To this day, family and friends call me Dink, a name my father gave me when I ...more
