That girl also didn't know how many other well written fiction books were written about Titanic. Teenaged me grew up and some twenty give or take a year or two years later picked this book up again to see if the magic was there. I barely made it past the Titanic chapters I was so angry. The history was not only off, but she basically made i Once upon a time many years ago a teenaged me loved this book.
The history was not only off, but she basically made it seem that real passenger Bess Allison knowingly saw her infant son into a lifeboat with a nanny while she and two year old daughter Lorraine decided to die together with her husband. Anyone with remote knowledge of the story knows that this was not true. The Allison baby was kidnapped by his nanny, they got into a boat while Mrs. Allison searched frantically for them refusing to leave without her boy. By the time she realized that he was in a boat, it was too late, and she and her toddler daughter went down with the ship, Lorraine Allison being the only first class child to die that night.
That alone ticked me off rather irrationally I know and I was so angry I couldn't even finish the book again.
Sadly the magic has gone for me. Was it maturity, the fact that I've found better written Titanic novels or maybe the book was never that great in the first place. All I know is if this book angered me I'm staying well away from Zoya, which is set in Russia in That one might make my head explode with rage. Dec 21, Kirsti rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: Romance LOvers, History buffs who like a light read.
Oddly enough, I actually felt like reading Danielle Steel last night! Although I own at least ten of her books, she is not an author I read often, and in this case, actually reread. I enjoy her books, but it's a kind of guilty pleasure, like watching days of our lives or something. But still, I read it in one sitting, so it's all good.
Firstly, the Titanic disaster has always been something I read about with deep sadness, and this book is no exception. The first time I read this book I was in tears for most of it, although the second time round I remember the sad parts and kept myself together. It is a really great story, of romance and loss and especially of sacrifice.
Years ago, when I was 11, I first picked up a Danielle Steel novel. It just proves that these books have broad appeal, and now years later I can still read them May 03, Piyangie rated it liked it Shelves: This is yet another beautiful book written by Danielle Steel.
Being inspired by the tragedy of Titanic, Danielle Steel weaves a story about a family who survived the tragedy. Having lost both parents and finance, Edwina struggles to bring up her siblings and run the family business. Although suffering from her own grief, she nevertheless put her feelings secondary to play both the mother and father role to her younger siblings.
Steel has created a strong, courageous woman whom rea This is yet another beautiful book written by Danielle Steel. Steel has created a strong, courageous woman whom readers can take instantly to their hearts. I believe every reader of this story felt admiration towards this character, for I certainly did.
Although there wasn't anything remarkable in the subsequent story line in the aftermath of the tragedy, the emotional journey of Edwina kept me engaged with the reading. The end was somehow predictable, for that is how the romances end. But in this case, I was happy that Ms. Steel didn't neglect Edwina at the end and allowed her to have a happy ending which she thoroughly deserved.

What a soulful book this is! I loved each and every part of this tantalizing tale. I have never read any character as charming as Edwina. This is one such book that can move you to tears.
The kind where you get emotionally connected to the story. Danielle Steel's magical words will stay in my heart forever. Looking forward to read more of her works. Jun 25, Marsha A. No greater book I have read many books by Danielle Steel but none have ever moved me the way this has. No greater love is a story about courage human endurance and most of all love. The book is based around the Winfield family and there tragic trip aboard the fated Titanic.
The Winfield's have travelled to England in order to celebrate there eldest daughter's engagement to a young gentleman who is now accompanying them home to America onboard the Titanic for her maiden voyage. The tragedy unfolds No greater book I have read many books by Danielle Steel but none have ever moved me the way this has.
The tragedy unfolds as Titanic sinks and the family loose both parents and the daughter her fiance in the sinking. Upon being rescued Edwina takes on the huge task at just 19 years old of raising her 3 brothers and 2 sisters the youngest of which is just 2.
Devoting her life to the children and mourning the Fiance and parents she lost her life is no longer her own. No greater love is a sad yet bittersweet look at what life was like for so many that lost loved ones the night Titanic went down. It is testimony to the strength people find out of tragedy and the way people adapt and grow despite suffering great loss. I give the book 5 stars because it is so. This book brings tears to your eyes as you read it tears for all the lives that were lost and tears for Edwina and her family as they struggle to cope with the loss of their parents in very different ways.
I strongly recommend that anyone who has an interest in Titanic reads this book or even just anyone who wants to read something that gives them hope as this book does exactly that. I liked it a lot because of the subject material, because it falls into my favorite genre historical fiction , but mostly because it was a really good story.
She never thinks of all that she is missing in life except in quiet, dark moments. Her whole life is devoted to her brothers and sisters and she loves them absolutely. As they begin to grow older and move away, she learns how to live and love again. How did one forget memories like that? When did it ever go away? Just a rare few. And the people outside those magic circles never really understand it. Nov 20, Ruby Boyer rated it really liked it Shelves: So heartbreaking and emotional, looking at that fatal night and beyond and how survivors had to learn to cope.
This was a very good story. It pulled my heartstrings with all the tragedies that happened but still love will prevail. Apesar de tudo, o futuro vai reservar-lhe uma felicidade nunca esperada. May 09, Heather rated it it was amazing. This book was so great!!! The beginning was so heartbreaking, but I loved it! It's more of a 2. However, it's a lovely exploration of familial bonds and surviving that traumatic night. Everything about it screams of the cheesy, almost airport paperback, novels your mum or great aunt secretly read but I found it increasingly difficult to put down, helped by the fact it's exceptionally easy to read [anyone looking at It's more of a 2.
However, towards the end the book seemed to deflate. The issue with Alexis solved almost by ex machina , all of Edwina's revelations conveniently being laid out for her by Patrick, a walking plot device, and not of her own character development. Also, for my taste there was an unsettling amount of emphasis on Edwina needing to marry and have children. Throughout she vehemently objects, so would you if you'd had to bring up five of someone else's children, and rather than flying in the face of expectations to live life as full as any bachelor at this point the book reaches the s, a decade not exactly known for deferential women , Edwina just rolls over to the presumption that the only thing worth doing in a woman's life would be to have her own babies.
