Produktbeschreibungen

From Library Journal

The Depression of the 1930s is at its height, but Audrey Driscoll, comfortably ensconced in a mansion and dreaming of adventure, is not bothered by any physical hardships. She is, however, hampered by her sense of duty to her elderly grandfather and her spoiled younger sister. For a time she breaks free from this smothering family, journeys to Europe, and there meets her great love, the handsome travel writer Charles Parker-Scott. Over the next ten years misunderstandings and the evil machinations of others mar their happiness, but their passion and devotion to each other never dims. Told against the background of a world plunging into war, Steel's latest novel is schmaltzy and predictable, but for all that entertaining and well written. Literary Guild and Doubleday Book Club dual main selections. Patricia Altner, Dept. of Defense Lib., Bolling Air Force Base, Washington, D.C.

Kurzbeschreibung

Wanderlust is the story of Audrey Driscoll. Orphaned young, Audrey has grown up caring for her eccentric millionaire grandfather and her demanding younger sister, Annabelle, who assume she will always be there for them. Sheltered yet restless, responsible beyond her years yet hungering for experience, Audrey is hopelessly bound until she herself makes the daring decision to leave. As the 1930s unfold, alone, camera in hand, she will shock friends and outrage family as she plunges headlong into the wider world.

Crossing the Atlantic aboard the luxurious Queen Mary, Audrey meets James and Violet Hawthorne, who will draw her into a sophisticated circle of artists and expatriates. And it is they who will introduce her to Charles Parker-Scott, in who Audrey will come to recognize a twin soul, a man propelled by relentless curiosity and driven by conflicting needs for intimacy and independence. Together they will spend an exquisite summer at Cap d'Antibes, then board the Orient Express on an adventure that will carry them to a remote outpost in China. But at the farthest reaches of this journey Aubrey must choose again. Japan has attacked China. Charles knows he must return to Europe at once. But Audrey becomes involved with a besieged orphanage and decides to remain in China without Charles, caring for the abandoned children until help arrives.

In time Audrey will return to America with a daughter of her own. While she must come home to San Francisco to confront a world irrevocably changed by time, she finds she cannot stay. From prewar Germany to London during the Blitz, from a wrenching reunion with Charles to a war zone in North Africa, again and again she must choose between the dictates of her conscience and the yearnings of her heart. For Audrey Driscoll and the men and women whose lives touch hers, wanderlust is the inescapable element. Born at a time when women were expected to stay close to home and fulfill traditional roles, Audrey is compelled to follow the thread of events that will destroy the complacency of the past and shape the future. From Europe to China, from San Francisco to North Africa, she is irresistibly drawn into a man's world of conflict, discovery, and danger.

In a vivid novel of breathtaking scope, Danielle Steel has once again surpassed herself in creating an unforgettable tale of men and women caught in the tides of personal drama and historic event. Wanderlust is Danielle Steel's finest journey.

True to form as in the other dozens of DS books I've read, you're there! DS has the devine ability to make the reader feel the time, atmosphere and emotion. She placed me in the Driscoll household in 1930s San Fransisco. I was experiencing the silence and the tension in the house. I felt the anamosity between the sisters and could sense the respect demanded by Grandfather. I found myself "rooting" for Audrey when she decided to travel Europe. When nutured a friendship with Vi and James, they were my friends too. I felt the agonizing drama of Audrey's deciding to follow her true love around the world. Along with Audrey, I expereinced the sounds and smells of Turkey and China. I found myself wanting Audrey to "fix" the orphanage and save the infant. I cried with Audrey when she found, lost, and found her true love again. I mourned her losses during the plot and grieved the pain of death with her. I rejoiced in Audrey's rewards and was never disappointed with the twists and turns of her travels and accomplishments. I would truly recommend this book to any DS reader, new or experienced. I am thoroughly looking forward to the next one!

I thought Wanderlust was great. I loved hearing about Audrey's experiences around the world. The author did a good job of evoking the 1930's setting. Moving, dramatic plot, great for any romantics out there. There were only two small things I didn't like: 1. I didn't think it was fair of the author to portray people who don't want children as selfish and miserable. 2. I thought the name of Audrey friend Lady Vi was a little corny, and a little too much like another very famous royal's name (Hmmm...I wonder who that could be?) Other than that, it was a terrific story.

I have just finished reading this book and i actually cried. This is a sensational book about following your heart and having to make sacrifices at one time or another. It also brings out historic moments in the 30's including the start of the holocaust. I have never read a book that moved me in all of my life. I commend Danielle Steele on her Masterpiece. Keep up the good work.
