Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Romance fans can expect to pick their way blindfolded along the familiar, rocky path to love in Steel's 18th novel, which begins in the 1930s. Audrey Driscoll often thinks that she might like to journey to exotic lands, but dutifully remains in San Francisco, keeping her wealthy grandfather's household running smoothly. But when her spoiled younger sister marries, Audrey indulges her whim by setting off for Europe. In Antibes, she falls hard for Charlie Parker-Scott, a well-known travel writer. Though torn by responsibility for her lonely grandfather, she throws caution to the winds and follows Charlie all the way to China. Despite his loving entreaties, she stubbornly remains there, trying to save a group of abandoned orphans. Finally returning to England, she finds that Charlie has married, angered by her defection. The lovers are later reunited only to be separated by World War II, until Audrey finds a way to combine their talents for the war effort. The book is largely unsatisfying, especially in its repetitious language. It seems that Steel has lost the spark that fueled Changes and Crossings. Major ad/promo; Literary Guild and Doubleday Book Club dual main selections.

From Library Journal

The Depression of the 1930s is at its height, but Audrey Driscoll, comfortably ensconced in a mansion and dreaming of adventure, is not bothered by any physical hardships. She is, however, hampered by her sense of duty to her elderly grandfather and her spoiled younger sister. For a time she breaks free from this smothering family, journeys to Europe, and there meets her great love, the handsome travel writer Charles Parker-Scott. Over the next ten years misunderstandings and the evil machinations of others mar their happiness, but their passion and devotion to each other never dims. Told against the background of a world plunging into war, Steel's latest novel is schmaltzy and predictable, but for all that entertaining and well written. Literary Guild and Doubleday Book Club dual main selections. Patricia Altner, Dept. of Defense Lib., Bolling Air Force Base, Washington, D.C.

True to form as in the other dozens of DS books I've read, you're there! DS has the devine ability to make the reader feel the time, atmosphere and emotion. She placed me in the Driscoll household in 1930s San Fransisco. I was experiencing the silence and the tension in the house. I felt the anamosity between the sisters and could sense the respect demanded by Grandfather. I found myself "rooting" for Audrey when she decided to travel Europe. When nutured a friendship with Vi and James, they were my friends too. I felt the agonizing drama of Audrey's deciding to follow her true love around the world. Along with Audrey, I expereinced the sounds and smells of Turkey and China. I found myself wanting Audrey to "fix" the orphanage and save the infant. I cried with Audrey when she found, lost, and found her true love again. I mourned her losses during the plot and grieved the pain of death with her. I rejoiced in Audrey's rewards and was never disappointed with the twists and turns of her travels and accomplishments. I would truly recommend this book to any DS reader, new or experienced. I am thoroughly looking forward to the next one!

I have been reading Danielle Steel for over 15 years and own all her books and this is one of my favourites - one I can read over and over again and still enjoy the story.
I was transported back to the 1930's and admired the bravery of Audrey travelling to China when it was probably a dangerous (and not "proper") for a young single woman to do so. This one made me laugh, cry and wish that all would go well for Audrey.
If you are a Danielle Steel fan you will love this one. Her earlier novels (like this one) are so much better than her later books. If you are new to Danielle Steel - this one is highly recommended. Enjoy!

I have read many of Danielle Steel's books. This has to be one of her best. It is about a young woman named Audrey who has been caretaker to her grandfather and younger sister. Then, she has this need to do some traveling, and see the world. She does so, first going to New York City (she lived in San Francisco). She meets two people named James and Violet, and she becomes a travel companion for the two. In England, she meets Charles, whom becomes her one true love, and they travel the world together, and no matter what threatens to break them up, they never give up on each other.
This is not as formulaic as many of Danielle Steel novels, but it is still wonderful and one of her best.

This book was one of the most enjoyable ones that I have read by Danielle Steel. The characters were vivid and enjoyable and the historical events were presented in an exciting way. The romance was wonderful and the short chapters make it an excellent book to read when you don't have much time. (I'll just read ONE more chapter!)
