BOOK REVIEW

LIGHTNING by Danielle Steel
FICTION & LITERATURE
Released: July 1, 1995

"It was inevitable that prolific Steel would tackle a (rightfully) current concern, but—well, suffering along with Alex does not offer typical Steelian recreation."

BOOK REVIEW

A GOOD WOMAN by Danielle Steel

BOOK REVIEW

SILENT HONOR by Danielle Steel
FICTION & LITERATURE
Released: Dec. 1, 1996

"If prosaic and simple, a glimpse nonetheless into a shameful episode in American history."
A love story of sorts, yes, but Steel's 38th (Malice, p. 328, etc.)—a no glitz, no glamour, color-by-the-numbers historical tract set mostly in the '40s—will have die-hard fans asking: Where's the Steel? Read full book review >

BOOK REVIEW

LEAP OF FAITH by Danielle Steel
FICTION & LITERATURE
Released: June 12, 2001

"Long on exposition, short on character, and sketchy, with a French setting as Gallic as Cheez-Whiz. Even diehard fans of the megaselling Steel may find it thin."
Steel (Lone Eagle, p. 140, etc.) proves you can go home again—provided you have $10 million. Read full book review >

BOOK REVIEW

AMAZING GRACE by Danielle Steel
FICTION & LITERATURE
Released: Oct. 30, 2007

BOOK REVIEW
