Review

Praise for A Gift of Hope

“[A] moving call for action.”—Kirkus Reviews

“Moving . . . The mega-selling, notoriously private author . . . is candid and honest about her own private life in a way we’ve never seen before.”—Books for Better Living

“Most assume that Steel’s life is as glamorous as her fiction. . . . The real Steel is a bit more complicated.”—San Francisco Chronicle


From the Hardcover edition.

I bought the book yesterday afternoon and kept reading it until 11pm. I couldn't tear myself away from it and had to finish it right there and then. Many times, I was in tears... This book is a must read for everyone. In spite of where the world is going nowadays, we all should care about one another. This book completely changed my view about the homeless people. I understand them more and won't ever pass them by without giving them something they can use, and look them in the eye. Romana Volny

I have been a faithful reader of Danielle Steel for years and have read everything she has written. I was so surprised that she worked so hard for the homeless. Made me think highly of her as a person as well as a writer. The book was very well written and kept my interest right to the end. Makes you thing of how lucky we are and that it could happen to anyone.

Never thought I would say I didn't enjoy a Danielle Steele book. Didn't even bother to finish it.
I felt I was reading the same thing over and over again. The first couple of pages made you think there would be a story to it. Never happened and I got halfway through the book before I gave up reading it. Very diappointed. Makes me hesitate to buy another one of her books and I've read everyone of them.

I've been reading DS since I was 15 years old and have always enjoyed her books. While the fact that this mega wealthy author focused on the homeless population for decade is certainly admirable, I found the tone in the book to be off. It was interesting to read about the plight of the some of the individuals she encountered, but I wanted to know more about THEM and not more about DS. The book seemed very repetitive. Great subject matter that we all need to learn more about, but could've been written with an increased focus on the homeless individuals rather what DS did for them.

The book is more about Danielle Steele and friends who donated items to the homeless once a month or so and their fears and efforts. It lacks stories about the homeless and relationships etc. It is terribly repetitive - she could have condensed the entire book to about 3-4 pages.

I was disappointed when I received the book as when I bought it I did not realize how tiny the book was. Well I soon got over that! Sometimes the smaller books carry the biggest messages. It is a story that brought me to tears many times and just like the other reviewer that first posted I could not put it down. We should all care about each other not just during the holidays but every day.

After reading Danielle Steel's "His Bright Light", I often wondered how she followed through with her commitment to mental health issues. What a surprise to realize she walked the streets of San Francisco and helped so many homeless people. Even with all her money and local connections, she realizes how little can be done. She certainly put her money to the best use for the years that she was able. I am sure the story is not over, and the gratification for all involved will be recorded in heaven above, the only place it truly counts. GOOD WORK!

Danielle Steel's true story of her work with the homeless is an amazing story. Her writing, as always, is awesome. I loved every minute of it... with anticipation of how she would handle all the obstacles she came across on her journey. I can relate... I lost my daughter this past November and I, as Danielle, began a ministry because of her passing. I also work with the homeless. A great learning experience. Loved every page and would encourage everyone to read this work of art. Lea
