Kurzbeschreibung

BONUS: This edition contains an excerpt from Danielle Steel's Hotel Vendome.

This compelling, centuries-spanning novel brilliantly interweaves the lives of two women—a writer working in the heart of modern academia and a daring young Sioux Indian on an incredible journey in the eighteenth century. The result is an unforgettable story of courage in the face of the unknown.

 
LEGACY
 
At the age of thirty-eight, Brigitte Nicholson has a job she likes, a man she loves, and a book she’s writing that she will finish—someday. Someday is Brigitte’s watchword. Someday she and Ted will clarify their relationship. Someday she will stop playing it so safe. Then, on a snowy day in Boston, Brigitte’s life is jolted and everything she has counted on changes. As she struggles to plot a new course, Brigitte agrees to help her mother on a family genealogy project and makes a stunning discovery that reaches back to the French aristocracy. How did Brigitte’s mysterious ancestor Wachiwi, a Dakota Sioux, travel from the Great Plains to the French court of Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette? How did she come to marry into Brigitte’s family? What is the truth behind the tantalizing clues in the fragmented, centuries-old records? Traveling from South Dakota to Paris, following the threads of Wachiwi’s life, Brigitte finds herself in the forefront of her own story. With a powerful family legacy coming to life around her, someday is no longer in the future. Instead, in Danielle Steel’s mesmerizing novel, someday is now.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Great plotting 1. Oktober 2010
Von Robin Landry - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
I don't read many Danielle Steel books because I'm more of a character-first type reader but the plot to this book captured my attention immediately. I've read that the research Steel does for her books takes longer than the actually writing of the book, and this book is actually about a woman researching her past. This book is fascinating and kept me reading far into the night.

Legacy starts out with a woman who works in admissions in a Boston university. She passes up promotions and never asks her boyfriend of 6 years if they're going anywhere. I won't give away any more plot, except to say that if you're not going forward you're going backwards. Life doesn't allow us to stay in one place.

I love books where I learn something, and Legacy teaches plenty. Lots of history, how to research your own genealogy and a lesson on finding your passion. All these lessons are wrapped up in a great story line told by a master story-teller.

What I'm not crazy about in a Steel novel is that her characters are too perfect. She uses the word beautiful to describe one of the main characters as many times as Pulp Fiction dropped the F bomb (okay, maybe I'm exaggerating, Pulp Fiction didn't use it that many times). I prefer characters that have faults(not as many as I have or it wouldn't be believable) and who overcome those faults. Steel's characters overcome circumstances, but being as perfect as they are, how could they not?

But again, that's not why I picked up this book, and while perfect characters, just as perfect people, can become annoying, I was able to overlook their perfection and enjoy a great plot-driven novel.

A totally worthwhile escapism novel and up to Danielle Steel's high standards. The kind of book you can safely buy before getting on an airplane and enjoy during a coast-to-coast ride.

5.0 von 5 Sternen entertaining tale 2. Oktober 2010
Von Harriet Klausner - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
In less than forty-eight hours, Brigitte Nicholson's life is shattered starting with her archeologist boyfriend Ted abruptly dumping her and finishing with Boston University Admissions Office firing her. Stunned with no place to go, Brigitte agrees to assist her mom who is working on a family tree.

Brigitte goes to Salt Lake City to research her ancestry at Family History Library. There she uncovers a strange mystery about her heritage as an ancestor Dakota Sioux princess Wachiwi who apparently traveled to France just before the French Revolution. While there she married a marquis. Wachiwi as the Marquise de Margerac was buried in Brittany rather than the Great Plains. Following clues takes the researcher to Sioux Falls and Paris. In France, Brigitte and Sorbonne Professor Marc Henri meet and are attached to one another. Their encounter and her family project begin to bring back la vivre de joie sprit that Brigitte had lost to complacency.

This is an entertaining tale mostly because of the exciting look at the life of Wachiwi, which is inserted throughout the enjoyable present day story line of Brigitte's research. Fast-paced in two centuries, readers will wonder what lessons Brigitte will take from the stirring life of the Sioux princess as Danielle Steel provides a winner for her fans.

4.0 von 5 Sternen SEARCH FOR ANCESTORS 3. November 2010
Von ITZME - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Brigitte works at Boston University in the admissions office and has a boyfriend of six years (Ted). All of a sudden in one week she loses her boyfriend to an Egyptian dig and loses her job to a computer. Brigitte is 38 years old and lost. She visits her mother in New York City and then leaves reluctantly for Salt Lake City to view the archives at the Mormon Family History Library. Her mother has urged her to look for their ancestors from France (the Margeracs). She discovers Wachiwi, a Sioux who ends up married to a marquis in France. The adventure of Wachiwi makes this book special. Not like most of the Danielle Steel books.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Best Danielle Steel Ever 16. Oktober 2010
Von Jan Comsky - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
This Danielle Steel book is great. I'm not even finished with the book yet, (about 100 pages left to go!), and I can't put it down. Danielle Steel outdid herself with this romantic adventure. I love the heroine Wachiwi, the heroes Jean and Tristan, and when in the present day I sympathized with Brigitte for her losses.
If you love Danielle Steel, buy this book. You will not be sorry. (I was/am so absorbed in this book that when I am away from the novel - I am thinking about the characters in the book. Thank you Danielle Steel!!

Von terryk - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
This book is definitely one of Danielle Steel's best in quite some time. The interweaving of history with the modern day story is so intriguing it keeps you reading well into the night. I did not want to put this book down. It is a book I will think about for some time to come. GREAT READ.
