Once in a lifetime – Danielle Steel


My last few reads were non-fiction,so I was eager to pick this book. It was a light read and was very engaging. I have always liked Danielle Steel’s writing. This book was no exception.
Daphne Fields loses her husband and daughter in a fire. She finds solace in her son Andrew, who is born deaf. But, she feels lonely again when her son goes away to a special school. It’s all about how she finds courage and strength to live on without Andrew, how she becomes a writer and how she finds love again.
The narrative starts with a car accident of Daphne Fields and everything from there on are flashbacks that lead to the accident. There are only a few characters but they are so effortlessly woven into the story that they emphasize the importance of love and friendship in one’s life.
It’s a beautiful love story. This book was a refreshing and a romantic read for me. So four stars from me.
