This is probably the last Danielle Steel book for me! Very boring, again, not well written - seems like someone else is writing Danielle's books now! I used to wait anxiously for every one of her books but this one and the last one I read were very disappointing. I agree, it was difficult to get through. I also felt like I was reading about her life with all the riches, money, glamor, etc. Don't want to hear about rich people getting richer! Don't recommend if you're a Danielle Steel fan.
