by Danielle Steel

When a beautiful young Frenchwoman and a brilliant American  actor meet in wartime Paris, their love begins like a fairy tale but  ends in tragedy. Suddenly orphaned, their three  children are cruelly separated. Megan, the baby,  adopted by a family of comfortable means, becomes a  doctor in the rural Appalachia. Alexandra, raised in lavish  wealth, marries a powerful man whose pride is in  his pedigree and who assumes that Alexandra is her parents'  natural offspring. Neither of them has the remotest suspicion  that she is adopted, or what turbulent tragedy lurks in her past.   And Hilary, oldest of the Walker  children, remembers them all, and the grief that tore them   apart and cast them into separate lives. Feeling the loss  throughout her life, and unable to find her sisters, she builds an extraordinary  career and has no personal life.  When John Chapman, lawyer and prestigious private  investigator, is asked to find these three women, he wonders why.  Their parents' only friend, he did nothing to keep them together  as children and has been haunted by remorse all his life.  The investigator follows a trail that leads from  chic New York to Boston slums, from elegant  Parisian salons to the Appalachian hills, to the place where  the three sisters face each other and one more final, devastating  truth before they can move on.

I had seen the movie, but had not read the book. The book was outstanding, hard to put down. I have read it twice. I shared it with my sister and she said the same.
Very good touching book. Danielle steel did not disappoint. I almost felt like she had been through this process herself she seemed to know so much. I didn't care for the ending, it just wasn't my favorite scenario but it was still good.
I bought this after having read it a long time ago. The story is touching, but I guess there is no way to stop paperback books from yellowing.
This book was well written, and I found the characters VERY interesting! I really just wanted to keep reading it, and the twist at the end was great!
I loved this book for the story, even though Steel is a tell-not-show writer, which creates a nearly droning style. Still, I was hooked to the end. Great storyline.
Loved the characters in this book! Like so many of her other books, I couldn't put it down. Even though I knew there would be a happy ending, the story kept me captivated throughout and I didn't want to see it end. On to my next Danielle Steel book!
Had read this many years ago and didn't recognize the title. Typical DS, but enjoyed the re-read.
Shows how with just a twist in life can change it.
