Nineteen year old Annabelle Worthington was born into a life of privilege, but everything changed on an April day in 1912, when the sinking of the Titanic changed her family and her world forever. Finding strength within her grief, Annabelle pours herself into volunteer work, igniting a passion for medicine that would shape the course of her life. But for Annabelle, first love, and a seemingly idyllic marriage, will soon bring grief caused by the secrets of her husband. Betrayed, and pursued by undeserved scandal, Annabelle flees New York for war-ravaged France, hoping to lose herself in a life of service. There, in the heart of the First World War, in a groundbreaking field hospital run by women, Annabelle finds her true calling, studying medicine and saving lives. And when the war ends, Annabelle begins a new life in Paris, now a doctor, a mother, her past almost forgotten,  until a fateful meeting opens her heart to the world she had left behind. Finding strength in the most unlikely of friendships, pulling together the broken fragments of her life, Annabelle will return to New York one more time, this time a changed woman, a woman of substance, infused with life’s experience, building a future filled with hope, out of the rich soil of the past.

    " Another entertaining book by Danielle, but no "knight-in-shining armour" to make her "happily-ever-after" - she did it on her own. "

    " In the book, "A Good Woman" by Danielle Steel, nineteen year old Annabelle Worthington has everything. She has a loving and wealthy family, large houses, and a social life until tragedy strikes. Annabelle's brother, father, and mother are on a trip to Europe while Annabelle is sick at home. She later finds out how her family was aboard the Titanic when it sank, and soon enough, she learns of her father and brother's deaths. Even though her mother survives, Annabelle faces a horrible tragedy that leaves her heartbroken over her losses. She must go in mourning for a year in respect of her deceased male relatives. However, mourning brings Annabelle an opportunity. Josiah Millbank, an older family friend, becomes Annabelle's dear friend in her time of mourning. She soon becomes married to him. After two years of marriage, Josiah must tell Annabelle a horrible secret he had been keeping from her their whole marriage, leading to their divorce. After being abandoned by Josiah, and the death of her mother, Annabelle has nothing left in New York. Everyone she had ever known now ignores her, even her best friend. Annabelle decides to move to France, where she can follow her passion in medicine, and help the war effort at hospitals. After a few years of hospital service, Annabelle has her dream opportunity in reach,and she can become a doctor. Annabelle soon is accepted into medical school, where ahe studies for a year. Her studies are interrupted when another battle leaves hosptials flooded with wounded soliders, and she returns to work in hospitals. As Annabelle continues her life, she is struck with more overwhelming tragedies, like her daughter, and soon to be new husband. But as Annabelle has been for all her life, she is strong and willing, and soon finds ways to miraculously overcome the problems that she is currently facing. Through all her life's struggles, Annabelle is able to get over the heartbreaking hardships she had faced in the past, and is able to continue her life as a woman, and a good woman at that. This book was a book I truly enjoyed. Danielle Steele writes with passion and description that makes the book such a great story. All of the characters are relatable at one point, and the whole idea seems realistic. Even though the book takes place in the early twentienth century, the plot is also relatable in our current time period. There may be instances that may seem a little overwhelming, but soon starts to make sense and calms down. Steele writes with so much description, I could picture all the events taking place. When I was into the plot and main point in the story, I could not put the book down. It was so good that I spent all day reading about Annabelle's life and her hardships. Also, the book was special because it was relatable and had a plot that was unique and original. The characters were so well developed that you truly felt for them, and it was almost as if you were good friends with them. For these reasons, I truly enjoyed the book, "A Good Woman" by Danielle Steele. "
