In this stunning novel, #1 New York Times bestselling author Fern Michaels conjures an unforgettable story of love, betrayal, and redemption...
When Reuben Tarz and Daniel Bishop met, they were hardly more than boys, brought together by their connection to beautiful, worldly Marchioness Michelene Fonsard, known to all as Madame Mickey. Twenty years later, Reuben is a Hollywood mogul and Daniel has become a renowned Washington D.C. lawyer. Life has rewarded both with riches, success, and beautiful wives, if not always contentment.
Out of the blue, an urgent telephone call from Mickey summons Daniel to France to rescue Philippe, the son Reuben never knew existed, and bring him to America. Philippe's arrival will be the catalyst that changes everything--unearthing old secrets and betrayals and forging surprising new bonds. And with each revelation comes that rarest of gifts: a chance to learn from the sins of the past and forge a path to happiness at last...
Taking up where g Sins of Omission left off, Michaels's latest domestic saga brings lifelong friends Reuben and Daniel and their women full circle as the tumult of World War II descends upon?pk on Europe. In most respects, the sequel is better than its precursor, largely because the story itself is more engaging. The bestselling author is as polished above as they come in making her settings work for her, and here she uses the drama of occupied France as a backdrop for some of the book's most compelling scenes. The panache of her prose helps mitigate the fact that the main characters are wooden, puppets motivated chiefly by their creator's insistence that they keep committing the same mistakes until they stumble upon a way to put things right, as when Daniel misjudges his daughter just as he previously did his wife. Michaels's creed also demands that the children inevitably repeat the sins of their parents--allowing her little choice but to pen another installment. (June)
