Review - Family Ties by Danielle Steel

The Copy that I Read

Year Published: 2011
Genre: Women's Fiction; Romance

Annie Ferguson was one of Manhattan's brightest young architects. But overnight she became mother to her sister's three orphaned children. It wasn't the life she'd planned, but one that rewarded her tenfold for every sacrifice she'd had to make.
Now, at forty-two, with a satisfying career and a fulfilling family life, Annie has reconciled herself to being single. With the children now grown into young adults and confronting major challenges of their own, she is navigating a parent's difficult passage between lending them a hand and letting them go. 
Then, an accident leads Annie to a man who will tempt her to reconsider her belief that it isn't too late to fall in love, after all...

My Take on the Book:
I had a horrible feeling about Patti Sears (if you want to know why, read the book), though she appeared/acted innocent, she wasn't, and I was glad when Ted Marshall got out of her clutches. There were times when this book was intense, and overall, I really enjoyed it; giving it a four star rating. 

Last Word:
It was nice reading one of Danielle Steel's books again. In this one I found the characters fascinating, and also at times frustrating, but it was a good read, especially towards the end. I read this while I was on holiday, and it was nice being able to give as much attention to reading as I wanted.
