Book Description

#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

Two couples, four decades apart. One believes that if lovers die, they find each other again in another life. Or perhaps they wind up as stars side by side in the sky, together forever. Who knows how it really ends? Danielle Steel breaks new ground in her career as a perennial New York Times bestseller with the poignant story of two parallel destinies, and the kind of love we all hope will be everlasting.

UNTIL THE END OF TIME

Bill, a dedicated young lawyer working at his family’s prestigious New York firm, leaves everything he trained for to follow his dream and become a minister in rural Wyoming. Jenny, his wife, is a stylist whose heart and soul are invested in fashion. She leaves the milieu and life she loves to join him. The certainty they share is that their destinies are linked forever.

Fast forward thirty-eight years. Robert is a hardworking independent book publisher in Manhattan who has given up all personal life to build his struggling business. He is looking for one big hit novel to publish. Lillibet is a young Amish woman, living as though in the seventeenth century, caring for her widowed father and three young brothers on their family farm. In secret at night, by candlelight, she has written the novel that burns within her, and gets it into Robert’s hands, wrapped in her hand-stitched apron. He falls in love first with the book, and then with the woman he has never met, living in the sequestered world of the Amish—a world without telephones, computers, electricity, modern conveniences, or cars. Although Lillibet faces banishment from her family and community, she embraces the opportunity to publish her novel, and is irresistibly drawn to the man who has heard her voice. Destiny is at work here. Fate draws her from her horse-and-buggy life toward his, and the publication of her novel.

In the hands of master storyteller Danielle Steel, these two remarkable relationships come together in unexpected and surprising ways, as lovers are lost, and find each other again. If it is true that real love lasts forever and lovers cannot lose each other, then Until the End of Time will not only comfort and fascinate us, as destiny does her dance, but it will give us hope as well. Love and fate are powerful, irresistible forces, as Steel proves to us here, in a book about courage, change, risk, and hope . . . and love that never dies.


From the Hardcover edition.


Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Steel’s two-part story of reincarnation and everlasting love will satisfy fans of gentle romance and women’s fiction. In the 1970s, famous fashion-show producer Jenny falls in love with lawyer Bill, and they marry, despite his family’s objections. Bill decides to attend divinity school, and they end up living in Wyoming after a church offers Bill a position. There tragedy strikes. In the second story, Amish Elizabeth takes care of her widowed father and brothers while secretly writing a book at night. Bob is an independent publisher looking for a winning read. They fall in love and struggle to be respectful of her father and Amish traditions while seeking to publish the book and be together. Could it be that Elizabeth and Bob are Jenny and Bill come back to life for a happier ending? This gentle, inspirational story is very different from Steel’s usual style, but her loyal readers will enjoy it just the same, as will anyone looking for a clever and sweetly dramatic romance. --Amy Alessio

5.0 out of 5 stars " Two Beautiful Love Stories in One " January 29, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
I have been reading Danielle Steel's books all my life, in the last few years I have learned to carefully pick and choose. Some of her stories have become redundant after a while. I am very glad I choose the right story this time. This novel is the reason I never give up on her and still remain a big fan. This was an excellent, emotional, romantic, story of soulmates in different times. The author's writing of this story was very reminiscent of the old Danielle Steel, that I grew up with. She wrote one of my favorite and most unforgetable story of all my time, "The Promise"........

With this novel, she weaves two separate, yet completely different love stories in one with the magical link, "love at first sight", "fate", and "reincarnation"...............

In 1975, the story of Jenny, and husband Bill, will show how much two people can really be in love with each other so much. They can complete each other's sentences, they each know what the other is thinking, how they selflessly sacrifice for their love, and sometimes souls are so intertwined together, that in tragedy, one can't breathe or live without the other..............

In 2013, the story of Bob and Lillibet, will show you that age difference, mutual respect for each other's beliefs, and coming from two completely, different cultural societies, that unconditional love can overcome anything. Add the belief of "reincarnation" of the two previous lost souls, and that was this couple's true destiny............

Wouldn't it be nice if we all could experience unconditional love, "until the end of time"! ( I fell in love with this novel, it's romantic phrase, and it definitely deserves 5 stars. )

5.0 out of 5 stars Just what the doctor ordered January 29, 2013
Format:Hardcover
Danielle Steel novels are always starkly hit or miss for me. After reading a couple of her books recently (Hotel V, 44 Charles St.) that were a big miss, I was reluctant to get Until The End Of Time. After all, someone who has been around as long as Danielle Steel and has been as prolific surely has to burn out eventually, right? But, I've been sick and looking for a good, easy read, because I can't stand looking at the TV anymore. So, I figured I'd give it a shot. And I'm so glad I did. I finished it in one and a half sittings and thoroughly enjoyed it, refusing to let a 103 fever keep me from finishing. The characters were likable, it was well paced, well written, and I'm happy to say Danielle Steel's still got it. It was a little sappy, yeah, but you should already know that getting into it. It's not like we're discussing Tolstoy here.

I've read a couple of people say that they think this might be Danielle Steel's last novel. I truly hope not. But if that's what she decides, she can be proud to end on such a high note.

Now if you'll excuse me, NyQuil and a long nap are calling.

I've read many Danielle Steel books, but its been awhile since I've enjoyed one as much as this one. I grew up in Lancaster County and although there were a couple of things that weren't exactly accurate for the Amish, most of it was accurate. Some of her latest books seemed very superficial and not about normal, average people, but this was a nice addition to her extensive catalog of stories.

I give this book a solid 4 out of 5 stars.

I like the way DS write, have read her books for years and year. Still have to say Wanderlust is one of my all time favorites, but most have a good plot, nicely fleshed out, and always a good easy read!

5.0 out of 5 stars She's Back! March 5, 2014
By Christa
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I will confess, the last few years of Danielle Steel's books have been for the most part, a huge disappointment to me. The stories were fluffy, over the top, repetitive, and bore no resemblance to the author I once thought could do no wrong. I found myself becoming enormously irritated with her for 'sleeping through the job.' But this book was her redemption in my eyes. The characters were well written & shared beautiful chemisty, and I loved the simple Amish love story told in the second half. Furthermore, I was enormously intrigued by the plot that tied together the two stories. I am very much a paranormal lover, and the notion of reincarnation is something that strikes a chord with me. She told the story very well. My only complaint is that it had to end. But it ended beautifully.

Don't think I'll read another one...
I just read Until the End of Time. Hated it. Hated the ending. Sweet love story and the ending was so awful. I don't know why all the reviews are raving about it. Not sure I will even read the second book in this book. BAD
