The very first book of Sidney Sheldon's that I read was "The Other Side of Midnight" and from that point forward I was hooked on writing. I always enjoyed the strong female characters and the way he wove the story together. I must have read the first few novels of his 10 times each .... You cannot compare this book to his earlier novels. He may have just needed the paycheck or has a vendetta against trees. The typical strong female characters are not in this book. Good plot twists & backstabbing family members are also missing.
This book is very predictable and not written all that well. I was a Sheldon fan for a very long time and I must say that this book has turned me off to his writing. Maybe if I go back and read "Morning, Noon, and Night" again it would change my mind. Turn off the light because this book is just not that good.
