5 year old Annie Whittaker died of meningitis, the day after Christmas, leaving a bruise on the rest of the family: Tommy, her brother; Elizabeth, her mother; and John, her father. Each member of the family slowly secludes themselves from one another in their own way. What used to be a close knit family doesn't exist now. Meanwhile, we are introduced to Maribeth Robertson, a 16 year old girl who makes a mistake that would change her life. She runs away from her family and friends, and starts working in a restaurant as a waitress, where she meets Tommy. The two immediately hit it off, but there are a lot of problems standing in their way which they must face.
The story is very sweet, and we get to read how Maribeth changes the Whittakers and makes them a family again. Though the ending is a little sad, you feel touched by the story overall. Danielle Steel, famous of writing matters of the heart, does an excellent job in depicting the love between two lovers, between a mother and a daughter, and the love within the family.
Whether you are a fan of Danielle Steel or not, if you like reading romantic novels, then this book will be a perfect `gift' for you.
This is a book is about two families that have suffered tragedies and are trying to get there lives back. In the first part of the book you meet a perfect and happy family that loves each other very much, when there family is torn apart by an unexpected loss they struggle to stay close.
After that happens the book switches settings and you meet a young teenager struggling to get an education that her father says she can't have. This girl is devastated to find out something that will change her life forever. She is forced to leave her home at sixteen years old and has to make a living for herself.
The small town she moves to happens to be the town the first family lives in. This is an exciting and sad book as you watch these two families cope and help each other with there tragedies.
Overall, I really enjoyed this book. It was like an emotional rollercoaster, it made me laugh and it made me cry. I would recommend this book to women of all ages; this book taught a lot about family, love and how to cope with pain and how to support each other.
