I enjoy Danielle books alot. It's history of a young woman betrayed by her brothers after the death of father and England's heirs lineage. Her mother was her dads second wife. Characters are defined and enjoyable.

Any woman reading this should be so happy to be living in this century.

Over half of Danielle Steel's book "The Duchess" seemed rather preposterous. Of course when one realizes she is trying to make a point about inheritance laws in days of yore one is inclined to forgive Steel. The book does become somewhat interesting and moving towards the end, and at the risk of being a spoiler I'll have to say I enjoyed the twist of fate which gave "the Duchess's" brother his just desserts. Not a bad read.

This was one of her best books yet. Lots of twists and turns.
