This author usually follows her rags to riches narrative, and I enjoyed her modernization of her heroine in this book. This character, a single mom with three children from different fathers, would normally be a judged, frowned upon woman, yet she was raised into an authentic successful character of today. And of course, she finds love, but again with a different type of leading man. Enjoyed.

Enjoyed this book. Interesting family and a feel good story in the end. Always enjoy Danielle Steel’s books.
