Thurston House

By Danielle Steel

  • Paperback
  • £8.99

A classic title from international bestseller Danielle Steel

Hard work had made Jeremiah rich: at the age of forty-four he was one of the wealthiest mining barons in America. When he married the captivating Camille - less than half his age - he was looking for more than love. He was looking for a woman to found a great family. And for that family, he built a mansion: Thurston House.

The vast mansion was the finest in the city - a palace for a prince, a princess and their children. In bricks and mortar, turrets and columns, it symbolised the great power of the new dynasty it was to house. Many generations would live and love and die in Thurston House. Each generation would ask itself whether money alone can buy happiness, a family and love.

Thurston House is the compelling tale of three generations of the Thurston family: Danielle Steel is a master storyteller.

Love Poems

Danielle Steel
Authors:
Danielle Steel

Apart from being a prolific novelist, Danielle Steel writes poetry. This is a collection which covers her thoughts and feelings over a period of 15 years."This is a special book about special people. People who loved me, and whom I have loved. People who have brought me joy beyond measure, and sometimes incredible pain. People I have hurt, sometimes more than I can bear to think about. People who have hurt me, sometimes more than they know. Yet each of their gifts has been precious, each moment treasured, each face, each smile, each victory, each defeat... in retrospect all of it is beautiful, because we cared so much.
