Overview
Sarah Anderson es una abogada exitosa. Con solo treinta y ocho anos ha conseguido prestigio profesional y convertirse en socia de un reconocido bufete de San Francisco. No obstante, en su vida personal no posee la misma suerte, ya que la obsesion por su carrera la ha llevado a descuidar todo lo que le reportaria la verdadera felicidad. Su relacion con Phil no le causa mas que continuas frustraciones. El huye de los compromisos y tan solo se ven los fines de semana, lo que no le permite entablar una relacion mas solida y gratificante. Por eso Sarah pasa los dias sola en su pequeno e incomodo apartamento... hasta que su cliente favorito, un anciano millonario, le lega una cuantiosa suma de dinero al fallecer y, con esta, la posibilidad de adquirir la inmensa mansion en la que el residia. En esa casa le esperan muchas sorpresas a Sarah: una emotiva historia familiar, la felicidad que provoca ver cumplido un sueno... y ese amor con el que siempre habia sonado. ENGLISH DESCRIPTION The restoration of a majestic old home provides the exhilarating backdrop for Danielle Steel's 66th bestselling novel, the story of a young woman's dream, an old man's gift, and the surprises that await us behind every closed door.... Perched on a hill overlooking San Francisco, the house was magnificent, built in 1923 by a wealthy man for the woman he adored. For her and for this house, he would spare no expense and overlook no detail, from the endless marble floors to the glittering chandeliers. Almost a century later, with the once-grand house now in disrepair, a young woman walks through its empty rooms. Sarah Anderson, a perfectly sensible estate lawyer, is about to do something utterly out of character. An elderly client has died and left her two gifts. One is a generous inheritance. The other, a priceless message: to use his money for something wonderful, something daring. And in this old house, surrounded by crumbling grandeur, Sarah knows just what it is. A respected attorney and self-described workaholic, Sarah had always lived life by the book. With a steady, if sputtering, relationship and a tiny apartment that has suited her just fine, Sarah cannot explain the force that draws her to the mansion and its history-to the story of a woman who once lived in the house, then mysteriously left it, to a child who grew up there, and a drama that unfolded in war-torn France...and to a history she never knew she had. Taking the biggest risk of her life, Sarah enlists the help of architect Jeff Parker, who shares Sarah's passion for bringing the exquisite old house back to life. As she and Jeff work to restore the home's every detail, as one relationship shatters and another begins, Sarah makes a series of powerful discoveries: about the true meaning of a dying man's last gift...about the extraordinary legacies that are passed from generation to generation...and about a future she's only just beginning to imagine. In a novel of daring and hope, of embracing life and taking chances, Danielle Steel brilliantly captures one woman's courageous choice to pour herself into a dream-and receive its gifts in return.
