But when she is just eleven, a tragic accident marks the end of her idyllic life. Orphaned and alone, she is sent to America to live with her great-aunt on a farm in Iowa, where she is forced to work while dreaming of returning to her beloved chateau. Only the friendship of a local boy, Billy Parker, offers comfort and hope. When an unexpected visitor brings some startling news, she returns to France and meets the Chateau’s new owner, the Comte Bernard de Beauchamp – a dashing widower who invites her into his home, and his heart. For a time they enjoy a magical life together, until Marie-Ange hears a shocking story, so chilling that she can scarcely believe it. Not even her dear friend Billy can help her now, As the darkness gathers around her she must find the courage to take one last, desperate step to save her loved ones… and herself
I loved this book from the beginning to the end. Made me cry, smile and believe in the darkest despair moments. It gives hope and a sense of belief and gratefulness for the things we have. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did!

Another book that left me speechless. Beautiful and amazing. There is despair and there is hope, there is struggling and there is overcoming. Danielle Steel is truly a wonderful writer.
