France, 1940: When the German army invades, sixteen-year-old Gaelle de Barbet loses her family, and her closest friend is sent to a detention camp.

But when the war draws to a close, she is falsely accused of collaboration, and flees to Paris in disgrace. There, she begins a new life that eventually takes her to New York, from a career as a Dior model to marriage and motherhood, unbearable loss, and mature, lasting love when she returns to France.

The Sins Of The Mother

Author:

Danielle Steel

Legendary businesswoman Olivia spends months each year planning a lavish holiday for her family to enjoy. More than anything, she hopes to express her love, and her regret at missing so much during her children's early years. But her younger daughter, Cassie, refuses the invitation altogether.

This should be a summer to remember, but old resentments die hard. As each of them confronts the past, they find a mother who is strong enough to take more than her share of blame, and loving enough to accept them as they are. The question is: can they do the same for her?
