Along the Infinite Sea Review

  • An epic story of star-crossed lovers in pre-war Europe collides with a woman on the run in the swinging ’60s, in another riveting novel of the Schuyler sisters from the New York Times bestselling author of Tiny Little Thing.
  • In the autumn of 1966, Pepper Schuyler’s problems are in a class of their own. To find a way to take care of herself and the baby she carries—the result of an affair with a married, legendary politician—she fixes up a beautiful and rare vintage Mercedes and sells it at auction.
  • But the car’s new owner, the glamorous Annabelle Dommerich, has her own secrets: a Nazi husband, a Jewish lover, a flight from Europe, and a love so profound it transcends decades. As the many threads of Annabelle’s life before the Second World War stretch out to entangle Pepper in 1960s America, and the father of her unborn baby tracks her down to a remote town in coastal Georgia, the two women must come together to face down the shadows of their complicated pasts.

“Heroism and the emotional risks of love are explored in what I am told is the final book about the three Schuyler sisters. I had not read either The Secret Life of Violet Grant or Tiny Little Thing which were the author’s two previous books.” By Nitty’s Mom TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE

“I recently read three other books by Beatriz Williams; I started with ‘The Secret Life of Violet Grant’, then ‘A Hundred Summers’ followed by ‘Tiny Little Thing’ which I finished reading two weeks ago. ‘Tiny Little Thing’ is the lead-in story to ‘Along the Infinite Sea’ and I don’t recommend reading them in the reverse order, it won’t be nearly as satisfying if you do.” By Barbarino VINE VOICE

The Award: A Novel Review

  • NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • Capturing historical events, terrifying moments of danger, tragedy, the price of war, and the invincible spirit of a woman of honor, The Award is a monumental tale from one of our most gifted storytellers—Danielle Steel’s finest, most emotionally resonant novel yet.
  • Gaëlle de Barbet is sixteen years old in 1940 when the German army occupies France and frightening changes begin to occur. She is shocked and powerless when French gendarmes take away her closest friend, Rebekah Feldmann, and her family for deportation to an unknown, ominous fate.
  • The local German military commandant makes Gaëlle’s family estate outside Lyon into his headquarters. Her father and brother are killed by the Germans; her mother fades away into madness. Trusted friends and employees become traitors. And Gaëlle begins a perilous journey with the French Resistance, hoping to save lives to make up for the beloved friend she could do nothing to help.
  • Taking terrifying risks, Gaëlle becomes a valuable member of the Resistance, fearlessly delivering Jewish children to safety under the eyes of the Gestapo and their French collaborators. Then she is suddenly approached by the German commandant with an astonishing, dangerous plan to save part of France’s artistic heritage. Conducted in secret, flawlessly carried out, her missions will mark her for years, when she is falsely accused of collaboration at the end of the war. Orphaned and alone, she begins a new life in Paris, with the ghosts of the past always close at hand.
  • Gaëlle’s life will take her from Paris to New York, from a career as a Dior model to marriage and motherhood, unbearable loss, and mature, lasting love. She returns to Paris to run a small museum, honoring victims of the Holocaust. But her label as a collaborator remains, until her granddaughter, a respected political journalist, ensures that her grandmother’s brave acts are recognized. Now a grateful nation will finally absolve this remarkable woman and honor her as the war hero she was.

“The story of Gaele gives us a look into ear torn France and the German occupation. We see both the horrors of war and the bravery of some. It portrays the extraordinary life of a young French woman and her family. It is a story that holds you captive until the end. I highly recommend it.” By Jaguars Lady

“I have read every book Danielle Steel has written – some better than others, some too typically Steele, but The Award is different. It brings World War II and the post-war time period to life. As another reviewer said, few books have touched me this deeply. The personalized history is fascinating, the humanizing of a time period most of us only know from history books. Highly recommend this excellent read!” By Marianne Eisenhauer-Wall

Jane Austen: The Complete Works: Classics hardcover boxed set (A Penguin Classics Hardcover) Review

  • Few novelists have conveyed the subtleties and nuances of their own social milieu with the wit and insight of Jane Austen. Through her vivacious and spirited heroines and their circle, she painted vivid portraits of English middle-class life as the eighteenth century came to a close. Each of these novels is a love story and a story about marriage—marriage for love, for financial security, for social status. But they are not mere romances. Ironic, comic, and wise, they are masterly studies of the society Austen observed. The seven books in this box set—Sense and Sensibility, Pride and Prejudice, Mansfield Park, Emma, Northanger Abbey, Persuasion, and Love and Freindship (early writings and juvenilia)—contain some of the most brilliant, dazzling prose in the English language. Part of Penguin’s beautiful Hardcover Classics series, designed by the award-winning Coralie Bickford-Smith, these delectable and collectible editions are bound in high-quality, tactile cloth with foil stamped into the design.

“I gave it four stars because it was a shrink wrapped box set, but each book had a price sticker on it. This wouldn’t be a problem except that when removing the stickers, they took off the pink coloring on the book cover. I got these because the covers are beautiful, so it made me mad that a few of them are ruined now.” By Melissa

“Beautiful set with everything she wrote. I’m enjoying the volumes very much. I wish those stupid stickers hadn’t been on the backs of the books, though, because when you take them off they ruin some of the cover design and leave a mark where they were taken from.” By Laura Deger
