    Every woman makes choices. And no one has made more difficult choices than Olivia Grayson. The enormously successful businesswoman missed out on much of her children’s lives while she built her legendary home-furnishings empire. In Danielle Steel’s character-rich novel, Olivia faces the past, tries to balance the present and make amends where due, while still running her vastly successful business. As a way of making up to them for time lost, Olivia spends months each year planning a holiday that everyone in her family will enjoy.

    Story
    Would you listen to The Sins of the Mother again? Why?

    yes. i thoroughly enjoyed the background of the characters. i could have done with more background on the youngest daughter but life goes on!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    amanda. she was a person i loved to hate!


    Which scene was your favorite?

    the two weeks on the lady luck


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    i felt the action of adultery was a little too glorified for my taste. i understand the reasons behind the adultery, but i felt the characters almost made it seem like there was a certain nobility to it, like there was a respectable reason behind it. maybe i was reading it wrong but that's what i got out of it. i heard very little of one of the wife's feelings during the story. (i know of a couple going through hard times over an adulterous relationship and that's why it hit me so hard.)


    Any additional comments?

    i haven't wanted to read a danielle steel book in ages. this story was great and i highly recommend it to one and all!
