Past Perfect: A Novel - Danielle Steel

Past perfect by Steel_ Danielle
Cybil and Blake married almost 20 years and they have 3 kids-2 in high school and one in first grade, born and raised in NYC and love it there.
Blake gets an offer in San Fran and goes out to check it out-there is nothing that will keep him from going there and making tons of money-he has to persuade his wife and kids to go also...
Not only did he take the job but bought a huge house, very old for them to move into.
20,000 square feet 1902 house with storage that included all art and furniture. Cybil loves the place and the move will give her time to finish writing her book and still do design work if the offers come.
They all arrive with their high tech devices and it's quite the contrast to what the house is all about...
Eathquake occurs and things are moved to new locations prior to that.... Youngest keeps thinking there are hidden passages and ghosts...
Cybil had seen the prior residents as ghosts and tries to explain what she saw when she sees the pictures on the walls.
She reads the family historical book and finds out who they all are and calls in someone who specializes in ghosts and he tells her they feel comfortable there and she wants them gone!
Like how the families meld but i still think it's very weird. What Cybil finds in the book and acts on it is really weird! Servants think the whole family is crazy talking to themselves as they can't see the old family.
I received this book from National Library Service for my BARD (Braille Audio Reading Device).

The Award: A Novel - Danielle Steel

The award by Danielle Steel
Enjoy the author's works and know I will enjoy this one.
Starts out Giella and she's about to get the award. Chapters go back to when she was 16.
Rebecca came from Germany, Giella's best friend. The Jews are being forced from their homes.
One day she sees them take Rebecca's family and throw them into a truck and they disappeared. She tracks them down and visits and is able to talk to Rebecca and even gives her a coat with promises to come the next day.
She visits through Christmas and for many months later always bringing foods and clothes for the family.
Story tells what she had to do to survive and she ends up in the fashion industry.
Love hearing of the model world, travel, the art world and the places she visits.  Tragedies and there are happy times also from both sides of the ocean.
Really enjoyed this book and glad she went on with her life but went back to her past endeavors... Didn't like that the author didn't spend as much time devoted to all of her children...

Koniec lata - Danielle Steel,Grażyna Górecka

Powieści Danielle Steel są znane i uwielbiane przez rzesze czytelniczek na całym świecie. Wiele z nich doczekało się także adaptacji filmowych.

 

Główną bohaterką „Końca lata” jest Deanna, która na skutek trudnej sytuacji życiowej w bardzo młodym wieku wychodzi za mąż i całkowicie poświęca się najpierw roli żony wpływowego francuza, a następnie matki, gdy po kolejnych życiowych dramatach na świat przychodzi jej ukochana córeczka Pilar.

 

Kobieta do tego stopnia oddaje się swojej rodzinie, iż całkowicie wyrzeka się swojej pasji, jaką jest tworzenia obrazów. Maluje jedynie w swojej pracowni, a swoje obrazy skrzętnie ukrywa przed światem.

 

Gdy okazuje się, że mąż i córka Deanny wyjeżdżają na całe lato, jej najlepsza przyjaciółka Kim postanawia zapewnić samotnej Deannie nieco rozrywki i zabiera ją ze sobą na piękną wyspę, gdzie musi wykonać pewne zlecenie.

 

W ten sposób nasza bohaterka poznaje Bena, właściciela galerii, który, gdy tylko dowiaduje się, że Deanna maluje, bardzo chce zobaczyć jej obrazy. Początkowo pomiędzy dwójką bohaterów tworzy się przyjacielska relacja, gdyż oboje mają podobne spojrzenie na życie i otaczający ich świat oraz oczywiście pasjonują się sztuką.

 

Stopniowo jednak ich przyjaźń przeradza się w silne uczucie, decydują się oni na związek, który jak ustalają zakończą wraz ze schyłkiem lata… Czy im się to uda? Jak ostatecznie potoczy się ich znajomość? Czy los jeszcze się do nich uśmiechnie? Tego dowiecie się z powieści.

 

„Koniec lata” nie jest jednak wyłącznie banalnym romansem, jest to także opowieść o trudnych życiowych wyborach, podnoszeniu się z bardzo różnych egzystencjalnych upadków, spełnianiu marzeń oraz odnajdywaniu szczęścia mimo przeżytych traum i życiowych rozczarowań.

 

Powieść w sam raz na długi jesienno – zimowy wieczór lub letni weekend.

Property of a Noblewoman: A Novel - Danielle Steel Property of a noblewoman by Steel_ Danielle Story of a man who is works at an auction house box. Jane is also involved and when she hands over the death notice to her boss, she is handed the assignment to see it til it's done. There are a lot of details they must follow the rules. The contents of the box sound amazing, I can just see the sparkling gems. Other pieces of information lead them to different places to try to find a relative. 22 pieces of jewelry that might have to go up to auction if relatives don't show up. They need them appraised. Like the back story of their relationships and how they are turning in different directions. Phillips mother's name is also Pearson but they were not familiar with relatives of the past. Love that this story is more than just one story. Love how it's tangled all up together and where all the clues lead. I received this book from National Library Service for my BARD (Braille Audio Reading Device).
