Her husband's suicide left Nora MacKenzie alone, and his shady Wall Street dealings left the Manhattan socialite penniless. By a miracle, she's held on to their mountainside farm - and she'll keep holding on, no matter what. The property is Nora's one chance to wring some dignity out of the sham she's been living.

The Vermont locals think she's a city girl on a nature kick, but she's not afraid to get her hands dirty. Nora's serious about learning the farming business...if she can figure out where to begin. Against the locals' skepticism, she has only one ally: Charles C.W. Walker.

C.W. is hardworking, gentle with the animals and a patient teacher of the hundreds of chores Nora needs to learn. Slowly she starts to believe she'll survive in her new life, even flourish. She might even be willing to open her heart again. But she won't return to a life of lies...and the truth about C.W. may be more than Nora's fragile heart can bear.

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Karen | 2/10/2014

    " I found this to be very heavy and depressing. How much can her characters endure. If I had gone through all that in my life I might not be here. Reading it really brought me down. I kept reading to find a happy ending and really didn't find one. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 carla | 1/26/2014

    " This one had some sad parts to it but overall another wonderful book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kristen | 1/18/2014

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lindsay Nelson | 1/18/2014

    " It was good, but really depressing. But like a good Danielle Steel novel, it ended well. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Nancy | 1/17/2014

    " A long road to the end of the book. It had been awhile since I had read a Danielle Steele. It may be another while. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Monica | 1/13/2014

    " All i can say, for those who believe themselves to have strong hearts brace yourselves and those with weak ones be prepared to weep like never before!!! its just stupendous. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ginnie | 1/4/2014

    " This book is really sad but good. It's about a girl's struggle to overcome her childhood, and discover who she is. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Fernanda | 11/13/2013

    " Um longo caminho para casa "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sarah | 11/12/2013

    " i really liked this book. it was a traumatic story, but kept my interest the entire book. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 K | 10/6/2013

    " My one and only interaction with Ms. Steel. Never again. So hilariously bad and melodramatic. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Priyanka Tandon | 9/11/2013

    " I consider this book as one of the best by Danielle Steel. Though, be ready for a heavy heart and tears all the way. Its a book which leaves you sad. But very beautifully written book! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Stephanie | 4/25/2013

    " Okay story line but I'm not sure I like the pessimism of how Mrs. Steel writes. It never gets any brighter with her. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Esraa Bassiouny | 12/26/2012

    " I loved the book, but I hated the tragedy in it "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Charlotte | 7/15/2012

    " An okay read with some striking observations - the point where Gabriella realizes why Joe, and pretty much everyone else, persists in calling her strong, especially - but the prose and most of the characters are flat and largely uninteresting to me. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Beverly | 5/22/2012

    " This book is amazing! While it is very, very sad it is completely a miracle what this baby is born into and how she grows up and overcomes what her parents and life dishes out to her. I recommend that everyone read this book. If I could rate it higher than 5 stars I would! Happy reading:-) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sara Khairy | 4/29/2012

    " it's nice soo far but it's soo sad "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 LaVenna | 1/23/2012

    " This was a powerful book! It is basically 3 books in one and is captivating from the beginning to the very end. Read it if you have the chance! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sara | 9/4/2011

    " This book actually made me cry!! I can relate to the main character in more ways then one. All Danielle Steele Books should be this good. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Melanie | 4/14/2011

    " I really enjoyed this novel. In the beginning I thought it would be a simple story of a woman reclaiming herself after a failed marriage but it turned into so much more. I now want to travel to Vermont and live on a sheep farm. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mary | 12/26/2010

    " I enjoy Mary Alice Monroe's books but this one was a little lacking to me. The attraction between Nora and C.W. seemed rather rushed. Not one of my favorites of hers but not bad. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Margaret | 11/27/2010

    " Very good novel. Except I can't understand why authors feel that they must put at least one curse word in a novel. "
