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...
I received this book from National Library Service for my BARD (Braille Audio Reading Device).

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.

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.

Precious Gifts: A Novel - Danielle Steel

Precious gifts by Danielle Steel
Have enjoyed this author's writings. This story is about a man who dies but it's the treasures he leaves his wife and three daughters that allow them to pursue their dreams.
Paul Parker married a French art dealers daughter, .
The daughters: Vinny-a social worker in NY, Juliet Bakery owner in NY and Joy the youngest wants to be an actor in CA.
His son from a previous marriage has tried to fit in. His ex wife is also left a gift.....after the reading of the will all of their lives will change...
She is now on a quest to find out the validity of the painting and to consider her choices. Story follows the mother and the children-3 girls and one boy as they are adults now and also a surprise person...
Felt like I've been on a sight seeing tour with the characters as there is a lot of travel involved to places I'll probably never get to visit.
Liked the differences between the two men that she's able to meet with as she explores her options...
Love how strong she is and how she loves to give things to others.
I received this book from National Library Service for my BARD (Braille Audio Reading Device).
