It's a story of heartache and pain. They love and live; and then they hate and die. It tells of life and how it can change in the matter of moments. ( )

KALEIDOSCOPE: the first, shimmering moment of life, like a diamond in the sea, glittering in the noonday sun, brightly lit and glowing flame, a brand new name, a shining light, then gentle twist and darkest night comes for the first time, then happy rhymes and gentle songs, hearts that belong until one stands alone, from brightest dawn to deepest dusk, from morning sun to twilight dreams, fantastic schemes and lives that sometimes go awry, such shining hopes, and sudden turns, from bright to dark from grim to grand from joy to sorrow, always waiting for tomorrow and a twist of fate, a ray of hope. . . with the faintest sleight of hand, the alteration of all life's scemes and all its scope. . . all with one tiny turn of life's kaleidoscope.
To three very special little sisters: Samantha, Victoria, and Vanessa, Precious little ladies, And their big sister, Beatrix, who is so lovely, and their three big brothers, Trevor, Todd, and Nicky, and little brother Maxx, who are very special too:
May each of you be blessed with good lives, and good fortune, good hearts, and good people to love you and who you love well. May you always be safe, and strong, and happy. . . and together!
And may each turn of the kaleidoscope bring you joy! The first turn, which was our turn, brought you to us, one by one, special gifts, greatly loved, precious people. And may your own turns bring you love, and flowers. . . never demons. . . Hold fast to each other, beloved ones, bring each other strength, and laughter and good times and love. . . just as once we brought them to you.

With my love, for you and your Daddy, and with ours, for each other, and you. With all my heart, ds.
First words
The rains were torrential northeast of Naples on the twenty-fourth of December 1943, and Sam Walker huddled in his foxhole with his rain gear pulled tightly around him.

Book description
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0440201926, Paperback)

The World War II love affair between lovely Frenchwoman Solange Bertrand and American GI-turned-actor Sam Walker burned too brightly and ended in tragedy, leaving their three young daughters orphaned. Megan, the youngest, adopted by a loving family, grows up to be a doctor in Appalachia. Alexandra, adopted by a wealthy family, marries a powerful man with an impeccable pedigree. Hilary, the oldest (and the only one who remembers her sisters), enters the sordid world of foster care before going out on her own to work her way up to being a New York news producer. In the pursuit of success and stability, Hilary foregoes building a personal life, especially when her efforts to locate her sisters hit a dead end. But when high-priced private investigator John Chapman is hired to reunite the three sisters, the secrets and lies that kept the women apart--and bound them together--are revealed and the love only sisters can share blossoms again. A heartwarming tale by master storyteller Danielle Steel. --Alison Trinkle
