Overview

Impossible by Danielle Steel

When a high-powered gallery owner collides with a wildly offbeat artist, it’s the perfect recipe for disaster. But in her 63rd bestselling novel, Danielle Steel proves that when two hopelessly mismatched people share a love for art, a passion for each other, and a city like Paris, nothing is truly impossible…or is it?

Everything Sasha does is within the boundaries of tradition. Liam is sockless in December. Sasha is widowed, a woman who knows she was lucky enough to be married to the most wonderful man in the world and thankful for every moment they had. Liam is half in and half out of a marriage that only a “wacky” artist could manage, and that his own impossibly impulsive behavior has helped tear apart. But while Sasha has been methodically building her father’s Parisian art gallery into an intercontinental success story, Liam has been growing into one of the most original and striking young painters of his time. So while the two are utterly unalike–and a nine-year age difference stares them squarely in the face–the miracle of art brings them crashing together. Now the question is, can Sasha guard her reputation while juggling a secret, somewhat scandalous relationship? And how can Liam, who lives for the moment, put up with a woman who insists on having things her own way, in her own style, and at her own time?

For Sasha, it’s a matter of keeping Liam hidden from her grown children and well-heeled clientele as she commutes between New York and Paris and two thriving galleries. For Liam, it’s about creating chaos out of order, bringing out the wild streak that Sasha barely knows she has, of choosing pizza over foie gras, and making love when others are busy making money. That is, until a family tragedy suddenly alters Liam’s life–and forces a choice and a sacrifice that neither one of them could have expected. But from the snow falling on the Tuileries to the joy of eating ice cream by candlelight, the artist and the art dealer have tasted perfection. And giving up now might just be the most impossible thing of all.

With unerring insight into the hearts of men and women– and into the soul of the artist –Danielle Steel takes us into a world of glamour and genius, priceless art and dazzling creativity. From the luxurious galleries of Europe to the endless beaches of the Hamptons, ImPossible weaves an extraordinary tale of love and compromise, of taking chances and counting blessings. With brilliant color and breathtaking emotion, Danielle Steel has written her most compelling novel to date.

Danielle Steel is obviously a natural born writer. With over 50 some odd titles under her belt one would think that creative story lines would come rather naturally. Unfortuantely, in Impossible this is not the case. While it is quite a quick read, simple story line and vocabulary, the plot is tired and repetitive. If you enjoy all her novels then I guess this one would be no exception but otherwise stear more towards one of her elder novels.

This is BAD. I've read almost all of DS's books and this one had me dying. I want my 2 weeks back. HORRIBLE, TERRIBLE, BAD.

'Possibly' the worst book I've ever read, but at 30,000 feet 'impossible' to throw out the window! Boring and repetitive to the max!! If this is the quality of Ms. Steel's recent work she needs to find a new hobby!! Don't waste your money, time or enjoyment on this one!

This was the worst book she has ever written. I couldn't finish it - I finally just put it down. This book is very repetitive and boring. I'm glad I only purchased the paper back and not the hard cover, I would have been upset after I had spent all that money.

I would like to begin with, I am a huge Steel fan. However, this book, upset me. I had to put the book down several times, tempted to throw it away. Sasha, the main character, who was supposed to be the strong, intelligent woman, continally put up with a man whose tantrums are worse than my four year olds. The on again, off again relationship bored me to tears. Women are not that dumb, to constantly take back a man who keeps having tantrums and dumping them over little things. Definately not her best writing.

The storyline was boring and repetitive - definitely not one of Danielle Steel's better efforts. I'm normally not disappointed by Steel's books but there is a first time for everything.

I have been Steel's fan since the Wheels.Of course I bought this one'Impossible'.Indeed, it's almost impossible for me to believe that she wrote this one.The story is the same old song of a sad business lady whose husband died and later found a younger man and ran into a heartbreaking situations. It's kind of stale. When I compared this one to the House, I can only give her a three for Impossible.Sorry.

I agree this was different than most Steel's novels..but the idea of an older, beautiful, business oriented woman attracted to a younger, handsome, artistic man appealed to me. The heartache of losing the love of your life and the possibility to find happiness again despite all the obstacles of age, children, and being accepted by those around you.

I lost count of the work 'wacky'. Danielle needs a Thesaurus. Book was boring and repetitive, the same conversation, situation, instance, happening, over and over, and no one I know has such a relationship with their grown children. I know this is fiction but c'mon...... I tried Danielle Steels books a few times and wondered again why I purchased Impossible. A waste, in any language. Am I the only reader who sees that the 'emperor is not wearing clothes?'

I always expect Steele's heroines to be strong, intelligent, independent, etc. Sasha was an example of immaturity and how to be a door mat - really, at her age and experience. Too many fill-in words that took away from the true background, description of situations, feelings... quite boring - turn two (2) pages and still be in the same spot you were. A very slow mover. I wouldn't recommend this book to anyone. Steele needs to come back up a notch or five!

This is probably the first Danielle Steel book I had to make myself finish...neither Sasha or Liam sparked my interest, 9 years is not that much difference in age, and how many times can the author use the word 'impossible' in the storyline?? Make up and break up was the whole storyline, fickle characters made a fickle story...
Guest More than 1 year ago
yes Sasha sounded strong but her heart was broken when her husband died....and yes Liam had to grow up....but they both left each other for family first and realized they needed each other more.....their love for each other was so strong it brought them back together

This book was not only the worst Danielle Steel's book I had ever read but also the worst book EVER... The storyline and the characters were dull to the extreme. The same lines were repeated throughout the book and it was as though several pages were just copied over and over again! I would not recommend this book to anyone for any reason!
