|House on Hope Street|
by Danielle Steel
Liz and Jack Sutherland had been happily married for 18 years. They started their own law firm which became prosperous. Liz's world fell apart when tragedy strikes and takes Jack away from her on Christmas morning. Liz must learn to continue on in the face of grief and manage the family and business by herself.
This story is about rising to the challenges fate throws at us. When Liz thinks she can't go on any longer, she must look within herself to find the strength to plod on through life. The message to always have hope and believe in miracles is prevalient. Plot borders dangerously on sappy and while I can't really point to any one thing in this book that was bad, it definitely isn't one of my favorite books by Steel.
