Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Sarah Anderson, a beautiful, successful thirtysomething attorney, is having a midlife crisis. She's become a workaholic, spending 60- to 70-hour weeks at the office, and she is involved in an unhappy relationship with a man she only sees on weekends, who refuses to involve her in any other aspect of his life. She lives in a dumpy apartment, which contains the same furniture she used in college, and she has no outside interests other than the sometime boyfriend and her job. Everything changes, however, when an eccentric, elderly client of Sarah's dies and leaves her a small fortune and a message: to use the money for something wonderful, to live well, and to think about something other than work. Following this advice, Sarah purchases the dilapidated old mansion the client had lived in (after finding out that it was her own grandfather who originally built it), breaks up with the cheating boyfriend, and focuses all of her attention on rehabbing the old house. As she works to restore the place, she finds contentment in her new pastime; a nice, normal boyfriend in the architect who is helping her; and familial contentment as both her mother and grandmother find happiness in the purchase of this house. A typical Steel fairy tale. Kathleen Hughes

No matter what people may think I once was a Danielle Steel junkie. As soon as he newest book reached a bookstore 9this was pre Internet days), I was there grabbing her latest book. And I have suchfond memories of her titles like Season of Passion, The Ring, Crossings, The Promise and most recently Ghost. I also had to watch all of the made for TV movies and then would have to reread the books they were based on again. And then a funny thing happened to this loyal Steel reader. I found that her new books no longer interested me and the ones I did finish was because I decided to stick them out till the end. Recently I did enjoy Steel's book The Ghost and today keephoing that a new book by this author would really grab me. When I read the premise of her latest book, The House, I thought this might be that book which grabbed me and took hold. I ultimately thought that while it was an OK book, it left me yearning for the years when her books really enticed me and made me want to read more of this author's title.

Sarah is a 38 year old estate attorney trapped in a four year realtionbship with a man who only sees her on the weekends. And Sarah seems to be content with the way things are, afraid face facts and be alone.

When her very elderly and extremely wealthy client dies, Sarah feels as if she has lost a grandfather. She wonders why he spent his life amassing a fortune and living in an attic room of his huge San Francisco home. Then while dispersing his very

sizable estate among 19 relatives whome he hardly knew during his life, Sarah receives an inheritance she never expected with along with a letter which encourages her to do something which the money which will provide her with a happy and meaningful life.

Like many of the other reviewers, I have and love all of Danielle Steel's earlier books. In the last few years, starting with The Klone and I, I became turned off by Ms.Steel's writing. In fact, I waited to read House on Hope Street and The Wedding until my name came up on the list at the library. Now, these two books will definitely be added to my collection. The House on Hope Street is a fast, easy, exciting read. I was in tears by page 61 and had to stop and put myself together. You actually feel the pain Liz has to deal with. You get wrapped up in her life, and by the end of the book, you can feel every emotion, good and bad. This book is a must for all of the early Danielle Steel book lovers.

I found the book very touching and close to the heart. You felt you were right there in the story. I felt the characters were well written. You understood how deeply Liz & Jack loved each other. When Jack was killed, you felt the pain that Liz felt. Once again Liz feels the pain when her son is in the hospital fighting for his life. She meets Dr. Bill Webster who saves her son and a relationship between Liz and Bill starts to blossom. I found the book very moving, fast reading and totally enjoyed it.

Format: Hardcover
Liz and Jack Sutherland had a very fulfilling and happy marriage a fulfilling and prosperous family law practice and five children one learning delayed the other teen agers, all that changes in a blink of an eye on a christmas day while out on a errand to the office jack and liz's perfect life comes to a shattering close.With jack's death liz is left to be both mother and father to her distraught kids who are forced to grow beyond their years, and to continue the practice just as jack would have done,but in some ways working harder.She has support in friends,and as the holidays tick off one by one she is filled with a onslaught of heartache she has not felt before.Before Labor Day another tragedy takes place that takes liz in a whole new direction. in it's direct effect Liz begins to learn that she can get over her grief and even have the capacity to love again..Some of her kids approve while others still find it hard to swallow which in itself purposes the question how long should one person grieve for a deceased love one and can the heart learn to love as completely but differently as before...It was a very good read although sometimes i felt like liz was made a saint but it just shows how to deal with her lonliness she tries but it is a neverending quest to fill it.And she evetually learns until your body and mind deal with everything and is ready to move on you are at a loss.

Format: Hardcover
The House on Hope Street is typical of Danielle Steel's most recent work--unoriginal, rambling, shallow, practically dialog-free, sophomoric, grammatically incorrect, and seemingly unedited. I miss the earlier Danielle Steel whose quality novels were written well, when she had to prove herself in order to be published! Now, she just blasts them out without any thought to character development, creative dialog, or research. After yet another disappointing book, she's made me resort to re-reading her well-written classics rather than waste my time and money on her new releases. For those readers who are impressed by her recent novels, check out her earlier works and you may be really impressed!
