Publisher's Summary

In Danielle Steel's thrilling novel, a woman's legacy - shaped by tragedy, fortitude, and undying devotion - transforms lives and hearts long after she is gone, and fulfills at last her most precious bequest.

Faded photographs of a glamorous couple in postwar Europe. Old letters hinting of tragic loss. And a breathtaking array of magnificent jewelry, spectacular stones in exquisite settings. These are the contents of a safe-deposit box long abandoned in a New York City bank. If no heir can be identified, the jewelry will be auctioned. But who was the woman who left such a fortune and no will?

Two people, drawn together by chance, begin to unravel the mystery. Jane Willoughby is a law clerk at the surrogate's court and Phillip Lawton a fine arts expert for Christie's auction house. They are simply doing their jobs when they come to the bank to inspect the contents of the box. But for both Jane and Phillip the search turns personal - and their efforts to reconstruct an enigmatic life will lead from New York to London and Paris, to Rome and Naples, and a series of stunning revelations.

Eighteen-year-old Marguerite Pearson left America with a broken heart in the shadow of World War II. She found a new life in Europe but forever mourned what she left behind. As the truth about Marguerite's extraordinary history - her forbidden love affair and her family's treachery - is slowly revealed, more people are drawn into the puzzle that Jane and Phillip have pieced together, and one among them will inherit the most unexpected gift of all.

    "A typical Danielle Steel book"

    Like most of Danielle Steel's books: interesting and keeps you reading until the end. I'm a big fan of Steel's books; haven't found one that I don't like. Once I start reading, I can't stop until I'm finished as was with this book.

    The narration of this book was clear, concise and made you think that that was how the characters would actually sound. If I could, I would have all my books narrated.

    "One of Danielle Steels's most boring."

    I usually like Danielle Steel a lot, but I just thought that this book was boring, uneventful and predictable. I would not recommend it.

    "Boring"

    It's like reading a Dick and Jane book. Boring, predictable and repetitive. The story might have been interesting if hadn't been simplified to an elementary level.

    "Easy and pleasant"

    This is a sweet story... Easy but fairly predictable. If you are looking for relief from a meaty, complex book, this is a pleasant rest stop.

    "What a waste of credit and time!"

    I have never been so disappointed with the Danielle Steel book before. This book was approximately 5 1/2 hours too long. I almost felt, as if I was reading Groundhog Day. Everything was repeated over, and over, and over, and over again. Not only that, but the ending was obvious by the first hour of the book. I believe the only thing that compelled me to finish listening to it, was the inane hope that it would come to some sort of different conclusion.

    "Truly comforting"

    It was not only a love story or stories but how one person can touch the life of so many without even a meeting.
