Bill is a dedicated young lawyer working at his family’s prestigious New York firm, who leaves everything he trained for to follow his dream and become a minister in rural Wyoming. Jenny, his wife, is a stylist whose heart and soul are invested in fashion. She leaves the milieu and life she loves to join him. The certainty they share is that their destinies are linked forever. Fast forward thirty-eight years. Robert is a hardworking independent book publisher in Manhattan, who has given up all personal life to build his struggling business. He is looking for one big hit novel to publish. Lillibet is a young Amish woman, living as though in the seventeenth century, caring for her widowed father and three young brothers on their family farm. In secret at night, by candlelight, she has written the novel that burns within her, and gets it into Robert’s hands, wrapped in her hand-stitched apron. He falls in love first with the book, and then with the woman he has never met, living in the sequestered world of the Amish—a world without telephones, computers, electricity, modern conveniences, or cars. Although Lillibet faces banishment from her family and community, she embraces the opportunity to publish her novel, and is irresistibly drawn to the man who has heard her voice. Destiny is at work here. Fate draws her from her horse-and-buggy life toward his, and the publication of her novel. In the hands of master storyteller Danielle Steel, these two remarkable relationships come together in unexpected and surprising ways, as lovers are lost, and find each other again. If it is true that real love lasts forever and lovers cannot lose each other, then Until the End of Time will not only comfort and fascinate us, as destiny does her dance, but it will give us hope as well. Love and fate are powerful, irresistible forces, as Steel proves to us here, in a book about courage, change, risk, and hope . . . and love that never dies. Download and start listening now!

    Publishers Weekly

  • “Steel’s two-part story of reincarnation and everlasting love will satisfy fans of gentle romance and women’s fiction…This gentle, inspirational story is very different from Steel’s usual style, but her loyal readers will enjoy it just the same, as will anyone looking for a clever and sweetly dramatic romance.”

    " What an outstanding book. A story within a story, that will make us all believe in forever! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Denise | 2/15/2014

    " I grew up reading Danielle Steel, so I still try to read them. I thought this one was better than they have been lately. The first half was a better story I think...but overall a good book. very fast read. it took me about 2 hours. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kathy | 2/14/2014

    " The first one half of this book was pretty good; but when it came to the second half and trying to tie the two parts together, it turned sour. I would have been happier with just a book centered on part one of this book. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sarah | 2/1/2014

    " I used to really love DS... Her earlier work was so good, I love almost every one of her older novels such as Zoya, Family Album, The Ring, etc. It seems that almmost every new book I've read have lost that "sparkle" they used to have. This was another disappointing book. I'm wondering if she should hang it up or maybe my interests have just changed so much over the years, it could be me... I'm just not sure! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Philomena Callan | 1/30/2014

    " Loved this book. I've been reading Danielle's books since I was a teenager and I think this is my favourite to date. Her books seem to keep getting better if thats at all possible. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kristen | 1/28/2014

    " While it was obvious there was going to be a connection between the two stories, the connection was made in such a clunky and odd way that it was distracting. Good story. Not fab. Quick read, good while waiting to pick kidlets up. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Val | 1/21/2014

    " Very odd book, I loved the 1st half, but didn't really care for the 2nd half of the story "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Beth | 1/15/2014

    " I happened to see this at the library and picked it up. What an insipid piece of nonsense. I couldn't finish it. The "good" characters are nothing but good. The bad characters are clueless, awful people. No believability. Not even a good plot! Awful. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Curlgirl | 1/15/2014

    " Nice, light read for my recent cruise. I had a hard time putting this one down. I like Danielle Steele for the fact her books are so easy to get into. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Donna | 12/27/2013

    " This was your basic Danielle Steel book. Her books have all the same theme only a few times has she changed it up. It is not a bad read but it ended the way I thought it would and sometimes I hate that "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Judi | 12/23/2013

    " certainly not one of her best.Disappointing "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Julie | 12/22/2013

    " I have been disappointed with her books lately but I really liked this one. Not so much repetition. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Melanie | 12/18/2013

    " The book consists of two stories - I listened to the first and was bored with the second and have up. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lesley | 12/10/2013

    " I enjoyed this book. It is two separate stories in one.. although somewhat intertwined. It is just a nice, easy read... not much thinking... a good escape. The second story leaves me wanting more though... I wish she would write a sequel with those characters. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Virginia Winfield | 11/25/2013

    " I liked the first half and loved the second half. I really like to read about the Amish culture and am not so interested in fashion, well written book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jackie | 11/5/2013

    " loved it! This is probably the bet Danielle Steel novel I've read... I fell in love with all of the characters. This did not feel as predictable as some of her older books and the story and characters were different. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Helen | 9/26/2013

    " Two stories interwoven. Couldn't put it down. Really enjoyed this book "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Betty | 9/23/2013

    " I loved the two love stories in this book...especially the second one; however, I am only giving it a 4-star rating as it had a supernatural twist that wasn't needed nor appreciated. Be real...people are not stars!!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jenni Bolnick | 8/10/2013

    " There are two stories to this book. The first in the seventies. The second in the 2000's. I preferred the second story because it dealt with the Amish. I think the ending was a little unrealistic, but it was good. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Gail Jorgensen | 5/11/2013

    " Very touching story enjoyed it a lot could not put it down (not like a mystery not putting down)but just wanted to she what was next for the main 2 people. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sherry Grussing | 3/29/2013

    " I haven't been reading Ms. Steele's books for a while since they all seem to blur together, but this one looked a little different. And it was! I liked it quite a bit. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carolin | 3/9/2013

    " Another typical Danielle Steele book. A great easy read. "

    " Another wonderful book by Danielle Steel - I couldn't put it down. Two beautiful stories that tie together so well at the end. Even if you don't usually care for her books, please try this one!! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kelli Koehler | 1/29/2013

    " Not a typical Danielle Steel storyline, which kept things interesting. Although I thought the ending was a little forced and not quite believable. "
