IN this new must-read from mas­ter nov­el­list Danielle Steel we meet Jakob and Em­manuelle – two World War II con­cen­tra­tion camp sur­vivors. They move to New York, fall in love, get mar­ried and start a life to­gether. That life isn’t an easy one, though. They’re at the bot­tom of the job mar­ket and work long, hard hours for very lit­tle pay. But through tal­ent, faith, for­tune, and re­lent­less hard work Jakob makes some­thing of him­self, and shows his son Max that Amer­ica is truly the land of op­por­tu­nity. For his part Max grows up in a priv­i­leged life, and even­tu­ally goes on to start a fam­ily of his own. But through it all some­thing seems amiss, and to find his place in the world he’ll have to walk in his fa­ther’s foot­steps. This is a marvelous piece from Danielle Steel – a tale of courage and strength, and Steel does a bril­liant job bond­ing the reader to her char­ac­ters. It’s a more se­ri­ous work than we’re used to see­ing from the au­thor, but she’s mas­tered the ex­e­cu­tion.
