Amazon.com Review

While hearts may go on after a tragedy occurs, they are never the same. Prolific bestselling author Danielle Steel revisits this familiar theme in No Greater Love. Twenty-year-old Edwina Winfield is forced to assume the role of head of the household, becoming both mother and father to her five younger siblings after her parents and beloved fiancé drown during the disastrous sinking of the Titanic. Determined never to marry, Edwina must also run the family newspaper until her younger brothers are old enough to step in. But next-in-line Phillip heads first to Harvard and then is tragically killed during World War I. Fun-loving George is wooed by the lights of Hollywood and exquisite sister Alexis follows in his footsteps. While tending to the youngest children, Fannie and Teddy, Edwina must assist the rest of her siblings out of their many scrapes and escapades. Along the way, she comes to terms with her loss and is finally able to put the events of the fateful night of April 15, 1912, the night the Titanic made its final voyage to the bottom of the sea, behind her and let love into her heart once more. --Alison Trinkle

From Publishers Weekly

Steel ( Heartbeat ) shamelessly plucks her readers' heartstrings in this predictably sentimental novel. In 1912, during a harrowing Atlantic crossing, 20-year-old Edwina Winfield loses her parents and fiance in the sinking of the R.M.S. Titanic . She bravely shoulders full responsibility for her younger siblings--sensible Philip, wiseacre George, angelic Alexis and toddlers Fannie and Teddy--and resigns herself to spinsterhood, certain she will never wish to marry. Financially if not emotionally secure in San Francisco, she ponders the fate of their father's newspaper business, capably mothers her brood and politely declines the amorous advances of a family friend. Additional tragedy awaits in the form of WW I and, again, tears are shed, but the indomitable Winfields prevail, eventually gaining access to glamourous 1920s Hollywood. As George develops a career in the movie industry and stunning blonde Alexis dreams of stardom, readers will begin to suspect that long-suffering, virtuous Edwina might have another chance at happiness (read: true love). Steel can never be accused of subtlety, but fans of her brand of romance won't be disappointed. Literary Guild and Doubleday Book Club main selections; author tour.

From the tone of some of the other reviews, it's apparent that the reviewers didn't check the publication date of this book -- written LOOOONG before Leo and Kate jumped on board the "Titanic" and made a little movie. When I read the book all those years ago, I didn't know much about the "Titanic" or the historical details that may be inaccurate in this novel, so in fairness perhaps that's why my enjoyment wasn't diminished at all. The sinking of the ship occurs very early in the book, and the reason for that is that it is a story about how this disaster affected one family long-term. I found Edwina to be a very realistic character -- more realistic than most of Ms. Steel's heroines. She was concerned with keeping the family together and due to the selfishness of her mother (going down with the ship and her husband), she is forced to grow up too soon and be a mother to 5 children. She does the best that she can but they are only children for so long -- then they grow up and want to live their lives independently, leaving Edwina feeling abandoned and proud at the same time, and realizing that it is finally "her time" to live life. I've read this several times and I always enjoy it.

This was my first Danielle Steel novel I read, however, having read some of the negative reviews it recieved, I would have to disagree. I decided to read this book not because I was curious about Ms. Steel, but because I am a Titanic freak, and when I heard that she had written a book about the famous ship disaster, I immediately ran out and bought it. At first I was disappointed, because the actual ship disaster happened before I was through 1/4 of the book, and other Titanic books I have read in the past have depicted the entire tragety from cover to cover, but I really admired Edwina for selflessly giving up her personal happiness to raise her five brothers and sisters. I think Danielle Steel tried to depict Edwina's mother as a heroine for romanticly going down on the ship with her husband, but I found her to be quite selfish for that! She left behind 6 children, the youngest being only two years old! Although I don't have children of my own, I am one of those people who believe that one's children should be their top priority, and when given the chance to live, you should jump at it! Overall, this book had everything: you will laugh out loud, cry out loud, and most of all, you won't be able to put it down!

Perhaps I've been reading too many DS books, and this is why reading No Greater Love palls, because the book has lifeless characters and a plodding storyline. I will finish this book, but it's been tough sledding as No Greater Love has lots of promise but is in need of tighter, pithy writing. Also, the characters needed more depth so each one could grab the writer's heart and imagination.

This is without a doubt D.S. most boring novel of all!!! Very hard to follow, it tells way too much about the Titanic. If I wanted to know about the Titanic, I'll get the real book!

For some reason the person whose turn it was in our Reading club chose this book and I was forced to read it. Not even Chinese water torture could be worse. I feel sorry for all Danielle Steel's faithful readers - eventually their minds will turn to Jello. And why disgrace the memory of Titanic - the ship of dreams with this nightmare of a book. I would not recommend this book to anyone looking for reading that is above a 3rd grade level.

Danielle Steel has done it again! In her 28th best-selling novel, No Greater Love, she relives through the swirling emotions and the agonizing pain that many people had gone through during one of the most momentous event in history: the sinking of the Titanic.
Edwina Winfield is a daughter of two dear, loving parents. She has six brothers and sisters whom she all loves dearly. Edwina is left to take care of them when her parents and fiancé drowns in the terrible sinking of the Titanic. Edwina decides to dedicate and give up her life to raising her siblings.
Edwina struggles to keep her family together and for twelve years, she commits her entire heart and soul into her family. Through many moments that make you laugh and cry, you will experience, as if you were right there with the characters, the growth and pains of the family as they learn to adjust and live with the huge tragedy that they had experienced and survived through.
No Greater Love is one of those books that you can't seem to put down. I enjoyed it tremendously. The story plot is remarkably realistic, and you will actually feel as if you are living in that era and witnessing the sinking of the Titanic.
The hardships that Edwina and her family endure throughout the story will pull at your heart and the tears will fall freely. The book makes you feel a range of emotions. There will be moments when tears of sadness and pity will fall, but there will also be times when the talents of Danielle Steel will make you sit back and laugh. No Greater Love is one of those rare books where you will be interested throughout the whole story, from the first until the last page of the book. This book is an extremely emotional and sensational book.
