Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Its epigraph may be from Rimbaud, but the rest of this mega-soap opera is pure Sheldon (Nothing Lasts Forever): a twisty, turbo-paced yarn of international intrigue set in the "champagne wishes and caviar dreams" world of the super-rich. When ruthless billionaire Harry Stanford is found drowned off the coast of Corsica, his three legitimate children gather at Rose Hill, the Stanford estate in Boston. They are Woody, a polo-playing playboy who likes to abuse both drugs and his ex-waitress wife; Tyler, who has parlayed a first-rate legal mind into a Chicago judgeship; and Kendall, whose success as a fashion designer is marred by her dark secret and the blackmailer who knows it. The mogul's will dictates that his fortune be divided among his "issue"?including the beautiful young woman who, hearing of her father's death, flies to Boston to at last meet her half-siblings. She is Julia Stanford, the tycoon's cast-off love child, now an enterprising executive secretary in Kansas. Of course, Julia finds herself cast as an object of suspicion by the doubting Stanfords. But even as she is drawn into the web of deceit that surrounds the family fortune, the troubled lives of the other heirs and, it turns out, Harry Stanford's death, she finds, in typical Sheldon fashion, enduring romance. This isn't Sheldon's finest. The narrative is a bit choppy and the characters less than lustrous. But his plot hooks remain sharp and it's the rare fan who's not going to be ensnared once again by this perennially bestselling author. Major ad/promo; Literary Guild main selection.

From Booklist

Prolific storyteller Sheldon is at it again in his latest melodrama. Multibillionaire Harry Stanford leads a double life; to the public, he appears charming and philanthropic, but to those who know him well, he is conniving and utterly heartless. No one knows that better than his three grown children. In spite of their mutual abhorrence for their father, the siblings couldn't find solace in each other because Stanford's cruelty kept them apart while they were growing up. It is not surprising, then, that they are filled with glee when they learn of their father's fatal fall from his yacht during a storm. The reading of the will promises to be a crowning moment for these children, but it is apparent that one of them is up to no good. Then their half-sister, Stanford's long-lost fourth child, shows up--but can she be trusted? Fans of Sheldon's previous novels will appreciate his usual quick pace and plot twists, but generally the writing, particularly the dialogue, is stale and forced. Nevertheless, you better stock up.

Sidney Sheldon, the best author in the world, will not disappoint any of his readers with this book. Morning, Noon, and Night is another intriguing, fast-paced thriller. There are innumerable plot twists, and the end is no less shocking. As with most of Sheldon's books, every chapter ended with a cliffhanger, keeping the reader interested in what the next chapter will bring.
This book revolves around a very wealthy and influential family known as the Stanfords. When the father dies, his children, the three heirs to the fortune, are shocked to find that they may have and illegitimate sister with whom they must share their wealth. This family carries out all of the major components of a great action novel: murder, revenge, greed, blackmail, and a splash of romance.
Although shorter than the average Sidney Sheldon novel, Morning Noon and Night has no less an impact. The short nature of the book actually gives it a sense of urgency. A combination of these elements kept me constantly reading. I finished this book in a little more than four hours.
Morning, Noon, and Night is a masterpiece, even for an author as brilliant as sheldon. No Sheldon fan will be disappointed with this work.

I had the opportunity to see this work performed by Spalding Gray at UCLA and I must say that some of the grit and edge in Gray's earlier monologues was no longer present.
However, I am always amazed at Gray's ability to tell simple stories and I remain in awe at his facile use of language and description.
A true artist evolves over time, so even if I don't enjoy the kinder, gentler Spalding as much, I must still respect him for for what he is--one of the greatest monologue-ists out there...

The plot lacks integrity. There are so many errors that made me wander if the book had been edited at all! Also, I believe that the author should've spent an extra 50-100 pages to better develop characters and settings. Nevertheless, I did enjoy reading the book with its many twists & turns. Mr. Sheldon seems to be a very talanted story teller who just needs a better editor. This was my first Sidney Sheldon book, and it would have been the last except that based on the good reviews that I've read here on Amazon , I'm willing to give his "Master of the Game" or "Rage of Angles" a try.

Not Sheldon's most famous, or even best book, but enjoyable nevertheless.

Every family has secrets, and this was not an always enjoyable book to read.

In my youth, I didn't understand why Kendall did not fight back, whose heartache bothered me the most, but now I do understand.

There was a rich man, who was nowhere as omnipotent as he thought. He indulged though he was running, and suddenly, he was killed. The first few chapters were amongst my favorites, because I loved all the food described.

Then came the stories of his children - heartache upon heartache.

This isn't Sheldon's best, and I am judging it because its ending was so unsatisfactory to me. Regardless, the writing is poignant, sharp, and deeply empathetic.

I do like this book.

MORNING, NOON, AND NIGHT is another great book from Sidney Sheldon. The story starts out with the introduction of Harry Stanford, one of the most powerful and richest men in the world. During a cruise on his private yacht he falls over (or is he pushed?) and drowns. His children, who have had little to do with him or each other for a great part of their lives, are now reunited. They come to find out what their father left them, if anything, and they soon discover some shocking news: there is a 4th sibling, Julia, who claims she is an heir to the estate. Do they believe her? Or is she an imposter?
This is one of Sidney Sheldon's better books. I highly recommend it!

What else can I say? Alot. Okay, first of all, this book is unlike any other Sidney Sheldon books. It has the most stunning conclusion I've ever read. In any book. Or rather, it wasn't the conclusion that was stunning, but rather the whole book, with all its plot twists, and it has many indeed. My only complaint is romantic content. Now don't get me wrong, I enjoy romantic content, and, with Sidney Sheldon's books, it always enhances the storylines. Unlike his other books, though, the romanticism in this book is so plain and obvious, and it only develops into something by the end of the book. Furthermore, it was wholly unneccary. COMPLETELY unneccary. Not that it hindered the story, or made me like it any less. If you like reading, you'll like this book. Hell, even if you don't like reading, you'll like this book.

I read this book in less than 3 days, and I enjoyed every page. This is the story about a very rich man named Hary Stanford who dies a mysterious death by drowning. Seeing that he had children, he left them all an equal share of his billions of dollars. However, a woman named Julia shows up shortly after claiming to be a product of the affair between Harry and the housekeeper named Rosemary. The will states that each of his children will recieve an equal amount of his money, Julia is just as entitled to it.
I don't want to go much further or else I'll spoil the plot, but I just want to say that this book reminds me of the movie Nurse Betty, because every event is more surprising and ironic as the last. It is a very exciting story which will keep you on the edge of your seat up to the last word.
