Un­til the End of Time

Friday - - Great Reads -

by Danielle Steel

This whim­si­cal ro­mance is one of three books churned out last year by the pro­lific Steel – said to be the best-sell­ing au­thor alive – and its pon­der­ous ap­proach to love has a philo­soph­i­cal di­men­sion that may not be ex­pected of the stal­wart writer. Look­ing at the lives of two cou­ples, four decades apart, it is con­cerned with the na­ture of love, the con­cept of des­tiny, and how we can make sense of loss. While Steel’s sen­ti­men­tal style is not for ev­ery­one, the ques­tion at the book’s heart – how un­con­di­tional and ev­er­last­ing can love re­ally ever be? – will strike a chord with any­one who’s ever said ‘I’ll love you for­ever’ and meant it.
