Typical Danielle. Nice story with a different twist. The novel is part current and part past history as told from the point of view of someone in the 1700's. ( )

I began this book over the summer of 2012. I powered through the majority of it in less than two days; I only picked it up and finished it today. I don't even remember why it took me so long to pick it up again.
Nothing new in this book for longtime Steel readers. It may encourage people to research the First Peoples of their area; I don't expect it to change anyone's life. ( )

I've enjoyed a couple of Danielle Steel's books in the distant past, but couldn't get beyond the first few chapters. It seemed as if she'd realized how popular genealogy was and decided to throw together something relating to it. It was very slow and boring and even though she spent a lot of time attempting to develop her main character, there was no depth.

Many of the sentences were poorly constructed. One example from page 77 - "The artifacts at the institute were ancient and fragile, and had been carefully preserved, and once again Brigitte was able to find a librarian, who in this case was not just helpful, but fascinated by the story Brigitte told". I don't mind long sentences, but...she should fire her editor.

I wanted to like it and I very rarely fail to finish a book. My mother recommended this to me as I've been an avid genealogist for over 20 years, but that wasn't enough to hold my interest. ( )
