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.

Disappointing....

The cover and flyleaf caught my interest, however, this book is written in the third person and not from the point of view of one or more of the characters. This style of writing prevents you from bonding to the characters; the story is being told to you instead of you...
The cover and flyleaf caught my interest, however, this book is written in the third person and not from the point of view of one or more of the characters. This style of writing prevents you from bonding to the characters; the story is being told to you instead of you being part of the story. I usually read the first page or two of a book before I purchase it, I didn't this time and was disappointed. I haven't read a Danielle Steel book for many years and don't remember if this is always her style, but I will be careful in the future.

    Great Book

    I enjoyed this book thoroughly. Who says something has to be difficult to be good. Danielle Steele is a wonderful storyteller. One can see the action unveiling in one's mind. With the reality crap they have on television nowadays, reading this was a joy. Yes it was somewhat predictable, but I never found it boring.

    Wonderful story with an interesting element!

    This was typical Danielle Steel with happy ending and all but the additional element of Native American culture was intriguing to me. I enjoyed the escape.
