NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLERIn Danielle Steel's remarkable new novel, one of her most memorable characters comes to terms with unfinished business and long-buried truths as the mother of three very different daughters with three singular fathers. As a young intern at an art gallery in Paris, Isabelle McAvoy meets Putnam Armstrong, wealthy, gentle, older, and secluded from the world. Isabelle's relationship with Putnam, and her time at his ch©Øteau on the Normandy coast, are the stuff of dreams. But it turns real when she becomes pregnant, for she knows that marriage is out of the question. When Isabelle returns to New York, she enters a new relationship that she hopes will be more stable and traditional. But she soon realizes she has made a terrible mistake and again finds herself a single mother. With two young daughters and no husband, Isabelle finally and unexpectedly finds happiness and a love that gives her a third child, a baby as happy as her beloved father. And yet, once again, life brings dramatic changes. The three girls grow up to be very different women, and Isabelle's relationship with each of them is unique. While raising her girls alone, Isabelle also begins building a career as a successful art consultant. Then one final turn of fate brings a past secret to light, bonds mother and daughters closer, and turns a challenge into a blessing.

For the first third of this book I thought, "How could Danielle Steel create a leading lady who is so naive and makes such bad life choices?" This part of the book talked about Isabelle's relationships which left her a single mother of three daughters. The next part of the book details how she survived and made a career for herself which was OK. The last part however reminded me why I still read Steel's book. All of the parts come together with Isabelle's 'mistakes' turning out to be blessings in disguise. She makes some good observations like Thanksgiving being less about gratefulness and more about food and football! All in all for the way it started the book turned out OK.

Another fantastic novel. An amazing story of 3 girls with 3 different fathers and 3 different personalities. A hard working mother who has her own busy working life in the art industry.
Isabelle been filled with losses and love in her lifetime. One very strong lady that meets ever challenge that comes her way. Definetly a book you will not want to put down until the end. Enjoy!!!

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.
