While hearts may go on after a tragedy occurs, they are never the same. Prolific bestselling author Danielle Steel revisits this familiar theme in No Greater Love. Twenty-year-old Edwina Winfield is forced to assume the role of head of the household, becoming both mother and father to her five younger siblings after her parents and beloved fiancé drown during the disastrous sinking of the Titanic. Determined never to marry, Edwina must also run the family newspaper until her younger brothers are old enough to step in. But next-in-line Phillip heads first to Harvard and then is tragically killed during World War I. Fun-loving George is wooed by the lights of Hollywood and exquisite sister Alexis follows in his footsteps. While tending to the youngest children, Fannie and Teddy, Edwina must assist the rest of her siblings out of their many scrapes and escapades. Along the way, she comes to terms with her loss and is finally able to put the events of the fateful night of April 15, 1912, the night the Titanic made its final voyage to the bottom of the sea, behind her and let love into her heart once more. --Alison Trinkle --This text refers to the Mass Market Paperback edition.

From Publishers Weekly

Steel ( Heartbeat ) shamelessly plucks her readers' heartstrings in this predictably sentimental novel. In 1912, during a harrowing Atlantic crossing, 20-year-old Edwina Winfield loses her parents and fiance in the sinking of the R.M.S. Titanic . She bravely shoulders full responsibility for her younger siblings--sensible Philip, wiseacre George, angelic Alexis and toddlers Fannie and Teddy--and resigns herself to spinsterhood, certain she will never wish to marry. Financially if not emotionally secure in San Francisco, she ponders the fate of their father's newspaper business, capably mothers her brood and politely declines the amorous advances of a family friend. Additional tragedy awaits in the form of WW I and, again, tears are shed, but the indomitable Winfields prevail, eventually gaining access to glamourous 1920s Hollywood. As George develops a career in the movie industry and stunning blonde Alexis dreams of stardom, readers will begin to suspect that long-suffering, virtuous Edwina might have another chance at happiness (read: true love). Steel can never be accused of subtlety, but fans of her brand of romance won't be disappointed. Literary Guild and Doubleday Book Club main selections; author tour.

From the tone of some of the other reviews, it's apparent that the reviewers didn't check the publication date of this book -- written LOOOONG before Leo and Kate jumped on board the "Titanic" and made a little movie. When I read the book all those years ago, I didn't know much about the "Titanic" or the historical details that may be inaccurate in this novel, so in fairness perhaps that's why my enjoyment wasn't diminished at all. The sinking of the ship occurs very early in the book, and the reason for that is that it is a story about how this disaster affected one family long-term. I found Edwina to be a very realistic character -- more realistic than most of Ms. Steel's heroines. She was concerned with keeping the family together and due to the selfishness of her mother (going down with the ship and her husband), she is forced to grow up too soon and be a mother to 5 children. She does the best that she can but they are only children for so long -- then they grow up and want to live their lives independently, leaving Edwina feeling abandoned and proud at the same time, and realizing that it is finally "her time" to live life. I've read this several times and I always enjoy it.

As usual, Danielle Steele has written another book about heartbreak, love and fascinating characters. They're almost like cookie-cutters. Just different names and slightly different tragedies! I keep reading them all...so I must love them even they're pretty much the same old kind of stories. Good entertainment!

I know Danielle Steele has it in her to write great novels because I have read some great books that she has written but No Greater Love is not one of them. First let me say this book was written before the Leonardo/Kate movie. The story of the Titanic is a great story but this story is fiction. The first part of the book is riveting. I could not put it down. Like most people I could not believe Edwina's mother chose to die leaving behind 5 children for her barely grown daughter to raise. But once the kids get to safety from the Titanic sinking and back home that is where the books gets really boring. I read fiction for a reason.....the author can write what ever they want. I want to be entertained. Even if what I am reading is unbelievable and unrealistic as long as I'm entertained the book is doing its job. Did I already say the second half of this book is boring!!!!!! I stopped reading after Phillip came home from school. I looked up the plot summary on the Internet to see how it ended and I see I did not miss much. Danielle's great novels are The Ring ( it's one of my favorite novels); The Promise; Message from Nam; Wanderlust and
Kladiscope is pretty good.

Whenever I want to read just a good easy story , I go to Danielle Steel. She never disappoints me. Her old novels especially are well put together. This book deals with the sinking of the Titanic and the aftermath for one particular family. It is well put together and a very nice read.

I've read (and enjoyed) the Danielle Steel books that I've read. However, this one was definitely "can't put it down" variety. I took a chance 'cause it was early 1900's. So glad I did, it was a true love story of a different kind. Edwina Winfield lived through the Titanic disaster to raise her five siblings, all while putting her own life and possible marital happiness on hold. She was a remarkable character and made the book come alive. Thank you, Danielle Steel.

This was my first Danielle Steel novel I read, however, having read some of the negative reviews it recieved, I would have to disagree. I decided to read this book not because I was curious about Ms. Steel, but because I am a Titanic freak, and when I heard that she had written a book about the famous ship disaster, I immediately ran out and bought it. At first I was disappointed, because the actual ship disaster happened before I was through 1/4 of the book, and other Titanic books I have read in the past have depicted the entire tragety from cover to cover, but I really admired Edwina for selflessly giving up her personal happiness to raise her five brothers and sisters. I think Danielle Steel tried to depict Edwina's mother as a heroine for romanticly going down on the ship with her husband, but I found her to be quite selfish for that! She left behind 6 children, the youngest being only two years old! Although I don't have children of my own, I am one of those people who believe that one's children should be their top priority, and when given the chance to live, you should jump at it! Overall, this book had everything: you will laugh out loud, cry out loud, and most of all, you won't be able to put it down!

This was another one that I got on my kindle to replace my physical copy. There were two factors on this one that I liked. First, it was written by Danielle Steel, and second, it was about the Titanic, something I've always been intrigued by.
