I am typically not a reader,however my children got me an I-Pod for Mother's Day. I walk alot and get bored with music. I decided to join Audible.com and this was the first book I ever listened to. It was well written and kept my attention, I couldn't wait to walk again so that I could continue the story. I am anxious to download another book. Thank you for your wonderful website.
The story was very new and inventive.
Gabriella, she remained strong throughout all of her ordeals.
He was very believable in all of the characters.
It made me cry.
Love to read as I drive; never leave home without. Love the Cousins O'Dwyer Books #1 - made me feel I was there. Narrator X-celent! Purrfekt
Unlike most of the Danielle Steel Books that I have to-date, this one seems more about REAL people living REAL lives... NOT just the rich, famous and wonderful, it speaks about real issues... wish there were more that I, personally, could relate to. I am a REAL person with REAL life drama and help people with abuse-issues. THIS touched me as did the story (I believe it was called) Journey or A Journey or something like that, which spoke of a well-to-do woman who didn't recognize the more subtle abuses of / from her controlling manipulative spouse.
To Danielle Steele... Please, write more REAL STUFF... i don't relate to 200' yachts, SanMaritz, Harry's restaurant, the Claridge... et al. I and many like ME, are down-2-earth people living in REAL dramas... trying to stay afloat the best we can while helping other real people to cope with THEIR own real life dramas... If you need some ideas that will bring tears to your eyes, give me a call!
THIS is actually about the first book I've opted to 'critique' / review. It was / is quite worthy!
Danielle writes of tragedy and triumph. I have every book she has every written and will continue my library. She puts us right there not with the character but as the character to actually live the story as our own.
Tragedy to Triumph
It is very well written and it gets you in right away
The heroin's strength
His speaking is very good also the way he took on different tones for different people
Maybe. If they like Danielle Steel
I'v read many books of Danielle Steel. I typically like them for light quick listening.
I think a woman should have been the narrator.
No, but I might rent it when it comes out on DVD
The book was okay. It was interesting, but too short. I think I more lean towards longer books.
Wow. I have read and listened to several Danielle Steel stories and this one was the most tragic story. The character had to survive one horrible ordeal after another starting since her childhood. Danielle Steel stayed with her pattern of writing and you know life will not be wonderful for the main character, but this main character was so young. The character made the best of a bad situation and survived. The long Road Home title was perfect. The ending did give you a feeling of hope. As with life, it takes years and years of life to overcome physical and mental abuse. For a moment there, you did not know if this character was going to make it. The book is hard to enjoy but worth the journey.
