Amazon.com Review

New York Times bestselling author Danielle Steel continues to captivate audiences with tales of love found, lost, and found again, against seemingly impossible odds and amidst a plethora of human drama. When high-powered ad exec Samantha Taylor's picture-perfect marriage to a news anchorman dissolves, she heads west to her friend's California ranch. Throwing herself into the simple routine of life on Lord Ranch, Sam finds a new love in ranch foreman Tate Jordan. But when Tate learns of Sam's life in the fast lane of New York society and her high-profile marriage, he abandons her, telling himself that a mere cowboy can never make Sam happy. Heartbroken, Sam reluctantly returns to her old life in New York. After battling her way back to relative independence, an unexpected inheritance enables Sam to begin a program that teaches physically challenged children to ride horses, encouraging their recovery. Along the way, Sam rediscovers her dreams of motherhood when an abused little boy appears on her doorstep and then love reappears when circumstances bring Tate Jordan back to Lord Ranch and to Sam. Don't blink when reading this one; you'll miss something important! --Alison Trinkle

From the Inside Flap

Samantha Taylor is shattered when her husband leaves her for another woman. She puts her advertising career on hold and seeks refuge at a friend's California ranch, where she loses herself in the daily labor of ranch life.

Here, she discovers the healing powers of trusted friends, simple joys, and hard work. She also meets Tate Jordan, the ranch foreman, and a tumultuous relationship ensues.

When Tate disappears and a fall from a horse changes Samantha's life forever, she is confined to a wheelchair and must look deep inside herself to finds the courage to begin again.

Now, fighting the battles of the handicapped, she finds new challenges, new loves, and even the adopted child she's always longed for.

This was one of the first books by Danielle Steel I have read. I immediately fell in love with Danielle Steel when I read this book. The only thing I can write there is to recommend it to other readers.

A great love story has to have a bit more in it than just the couple falling in love & working to be together. It has to have another element, and that's what the horses are to this book. It's not just the horse ranch, but the passion the characters have for the horses & their determination to use that passion for good. This is one of Steel's classic books, I recommend it, I think you'll enjoy every mintue as I did!

I'm a huge DS fan and I absolutely loved this book it was a heart warming romance what Tate and Sam had was great and it took some separation to make it greater. I also loved the realtionship between Sam and the little boy she adopted she loved him very much and he loved her back just as much great read. All DS fans should read this one and if you are a fan this book will make you a fan.

Danielle Steel, you sure can fool me. I am questioning myself now as whether I read your book or did I see the movie and also read the book. Whatever, I sure loved the story line. Love prevails against all odds--it sure makes a girl think that there still is a chance for her.
Sam was such a high-powered person that Tate thought that he could not please such a high-powered person. He took too long to learn that he had underestimated himself. Have many of us have done the same thing at one time or another. But, as life should move-on, it did for him and he learned that he could, and in fact, had pleased Sam. They eventually lived happily everafter but not until some serious changes took place in Sam's and Tate's life. Sam lost the most of the two. Sometimes life cannot always be explained or sometimes it does not work out the way you or I would have liked for it to be. --Beverly C. Sanders

ISBN 0440167531 - I'm not a romance fan, and I really expected to "3" this book at best. I find myself happily wrong. The interesting naming patterns - Samantha's old and new loves' initials are exact opposites (J.T. and T.J.); the older couple in California have the surnames of Lord and King - amused me and made me realize that the author's attention to the little details was what made the book well worth reading. The bigger reason I enjoyed the book is that it doesn't just follow the simple recipe for romances - Sam's life goes on before, after and around the love story and spans the width of the entire country. Read the book. At the end, you're going to want a horse - and a boss like Harvey.

Another Danielle Steele hit. As usual she writes a great story with plenty of drama and the story reads great, however, I will leave the reading up to you and would rather discuss her hidden message as I see it. How great of Danielle to use her book as a forum and show the world how even in our worst moments, we can find a way to pull ourselves together and find meaning in our lives by helping those less fortunate. Danielle shows a great way that actually exist to help paralyzed children feel freedom by riding a horse. Very well told and so very true to life. This is a great story and a must read.

It never had a dull moment. Sam overcame some very hard obstacles. When everything seemed to go wrong she kept her head up and went on fighting. It is a tearjerker so bring a hanky.If you liked this I think you will like Kaliedoscope by Danielle Steel.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
This was the second Danielle Steel book I have read and it was by far better than her novel, "The Wedding". The writing style in "Palomino" flows engagingly. The plot weaves through emotional and physical tragedies that eventually work toward unimaginable inner fulfillment for Samantha. As she struggles courageously against the enormous odds, she begins living life not just for herself, but to benefit hundreds of "disadvantaged" children.

Sam's relationship with the foreman, Tate, proved real... but I had a problem with the shallowness of its beginning. Ms. Steel too easily moves her characters into bed with each other and while they enjoy being in each other's arms, a believable conveyance of deep friendship and relationship is lacking. In this book, as in "The Wedding, Ms. Steel's main female character overuses cussing to express herself -- whether the emotion being expressed is anger or mere flippancy. Is it realistic that Samantha would cuss more frequently and crudely than the rough ranch hands she works with? She does. And it damages the potential charm and femininity this "beautiful" heroine could have.
