Publisher's Summary

From number one New York Times best-selling author Danielle Steel comes the gripping story of a woman who loses everything - her husband, her home, her sense of self and safety, and her freedom.

Sydney Wells' perfect life with her wealthy, devoted husband vanishes when he dies suddenly in an accident. Widowed at 49, she discovers he has failed to include her in his will. With Andrew's vicious daughters in control of his estate, and no home or money, Sydney finds a job in fashion, despite her own designer daughters' warnings. Naive, out of her element, and alone in a world of shady international deals and dishonest people, she is set up by her boss and finds herself faced with criminal prosecution.

What happens when you lose everything? Husband, safety, protection, money, and reputation gone, faced with prison, she must rebuild her own life from the bottom to the top again, with honor, resourcefulness, and dignity. Sydney finds herself, as well as courage and resilience. Taking life by the horns, she revives her own career as a talented designer, from New York to Hong Kong, risking all in an exotic, unfamiliar world. She is determined to forge a new life she can be proud of.

Audible book isn't easy to listen to

What disappointed you about Fall from Grace?

I didn't like that a man's voice was the story of a woman. I just couldn't get into it.

What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

I didn't get to the end. It is very hard for me to listen to this book. I will be returning it.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Luis Moreno?

A woman.

What character would you cut from Fall from Grace?

I don't know because I couldn't get into the book due to the voice.

Any additional comments?

I love reading Danielle Steel books and own almost every one she has written in hard back and some of the older ones in paperback. I collect them. I love her work but I was very disappointed in the voice given to this book. Perhaps I would have been able to listen to it if it were a voice of a woman since it's a woman's story.

Disappointed

The premise was good, but this just dragged on and painfully on. Stuck it out hoping it would improve. It didn’t.

Hurray. It’s a good one!

I listen to every new Danielle Steel book and over the last couple of years she’s been churning them out every couple of months with the result that they’ve all been a bit disappointing. Not so with FALL FROM GRACE which finds the author at her best once more.
A plausible plot, well crafted, great characters and that feel good factor has returned. The story was very well paced and didn’t jump all over the place, the narrator was excellent, it was a pleasure to listen to this one and makes me realise anew why I so admire Danielle Steel. Recommended.

Amazing story of fortitude, courage and hope

This latest story be DS is simply superb. One theme with many threads that on the face of it appears it may well be something that happens to so many individuals. However, whilst it highlights the lack of respect shown by the US prison service towards its inmates, it shows and reflects how humans who equally roam this earth treat others in so many different ways. It shows courage, despair, humanity at its kindest and offers hope and inspiration to all as to how not to give up when faced with adversity.
