    Another typical Danielle Steel novel, where the heroine finds love and happiness in the end, and never deals with such mundane realities as health insurance, how to make the next mortgage payment, or gaining weight Instead, Brigette is most concerned about explaining why she stayed in a comfortable read BORING relationship and job for so long, and dealing with not having had a kid or two The plot is rather thin, as Brigette is canned from her job, and dumped by her boring boyfriend And although [...]

    I think the book would have been so much better if it had just been about Wachiwi in the late 1700 s The parts with Brigitte were so boring and repetitious and took away from the best part of the book Although I loved the first part of the Wachiwi story with Jean, I didn t feel anything between Wachiwi and Tristan, although their love was supposedly so real and deep I feel the book was way too repetitious and poorly developed Danielle Steel has been my favorite author for than 20 years but I am [...]

    Mary
    A very interesting book Somewhat similar to her other books, but different at the same time A book about Paris, South Dakota Indians, New York, and Boston, but still a love story I enjoyed all the information about the Indians and even have started to research my husband s family legacy that includes Blackfeet Indians The book has stirred me to look into his family tree and bring him up to date with where he comes from.I would recommend this book to any and all people who like Daniele s books, i [...]

    Foi a primeira vez que li esta autora Achava que os livros dela eram o dramaaaa Mas bem este n o Longe disso, um romance normal e com hist ria mistura.Foi uma leitura interessante.

    This book was very interesting to me because it is the story of a woman, Brigette, who is searching for her ancestory Her first stop is the Family History Library in Salt Lake City The entire book is very complimentary of the Library, Mormons and the tremendous help she received there She discovers that her 4th Great Grandmother was a Dakota Sioux who somehow ended up in France Brigette goes to the Bibliotheque Nationale in Paris to continue her search, where she determines that the employees of [...]

    Started out well and mildly intriguing, but quickly got redundant Clearly, there was a page quota which had to be filled Did I say redundant Let me tell you again how I felt.d then say it again It went on and on like that Only second DS book I ve read Clearly a very bad choice Or maybe all her books are like this and I didn t see it the first time I know I skipped pages then too There were two parallel stories, which sounded intriguing and a good ploy, but it was not One began three dimensional [...]

    I couldn t put this book down This is one of the best Danielle Steel books I ve read If you are a genealogy buff, love Native American culture romance you will absolutely love this book This story has so much diversity in it, from having everything go wrong to making a fresh start with life when everything changes for the better It sure leaves you with a feeling of hope, courage wanting to research your family history to find those most interesting ancestors What a wonderful book Kudos to you, D [...]

    The story was fantastic, the writing was not You have two stories in one novel here Present day and past Brigitte is the present day main character She is a wishy washy, educated but unambitious woman who has nothing to show for her education or her choices in life She is unmarried, nearing 40, no kids, a mediocre job at a university and writing an uninteresting novel for several years that she is bored with She has invested 6 years with a guy who dumps her, she gets layed off after 10 years at [...]

    I honestly thought I wouldn t enjoy this novel when I read the synopsis but I m happy to report I thought wrong.I don t know what it is about American Indian storylines that don t make them my cup of tea but Legacy was an exception I enjoyed the American Indian period storyline interwoven with the modern narration The facets of culture imbued in the book were very interesting and wasn t overwhelming unlike what I initially presumed I relished reading about the life of Wachiwi just as much, or po [...]

    I really liked this book but struggled between giving a rating of three or four It has a great plot in which the current day character, Brigette, finds her comfortable world turned upside down by the loss of both her long time boyfriend and a job she has held for 10 years At her mother s urging she agrees to delve into some research in her mother s longtime passion, the family s genealogy, which had always bored her to death in the past.Her research starts with the Mormon Library in Salt Lake, U [...]

    I thought I would proudly go through life being able to say I had never read a Danielle Steel book Alas, she made the mistake of writing one that showed up in the genealogy related fiction section of our library and now, although I m only on page 83, I absolutely must finish it to see how it turns out Yes, she is ridiculously redundant, and yes, I feel like I m reading a grade school level work However, I m a family history buff, curious of late about the fiction works based on a genealogy theme [...]

    It has been many years since I have read a Danielle Steel novel, so when I started Legacy I was in for a great surprise Ms Steel has always been a good author, but with this book, I feel she has transformed into an amazing author I loved how the story started with Brigitte, and the changes and that she was facing after a ten year slump I don t want to ruin the book for anyone by giving anything away After a visit with her mother she is guiltily asked to help research some of their family history [...]

    Eh I m moving, so I m trying to burn through all the Danielle Steel so I can toss them and or keep a few I was beginning to think I d finally outgrown Dani Steels silly little stories, but I had fun reading this One of her readable books Albeit very typical Follows wealthy white people working through first world problems by traveling and falling in love I did enjoy the historical element mixed with the main protagonist I don t read Dani Steel for great writing or to improve brain power, but he [...]

    I ve read every single one of Danielle Steel s books I think by now it has become a habit Legacy is such a welcome change from the predictable story of so many of the others This has a great storylinet just sex Her writing is still very repetitive, but at least this one had some surprises It really held my attention I loved the story of Wachiwi.

    Sherryl
    This is the first Danielle Steel book that I have read in a while that was different I loved the story line and how she combined two different periods of time It was a very good book and a page turner for some of the book which is usually not typical for a Danielle Steel in my opinion.

    Betty
    Topic was interesting but it was a typical Danielle Steel interesting but not compelling.

    Lisa Lyles
    I liked this book It reminded me of some of Danielle Steel s earlier books I liked the story within a story format.

    Kim. E.
    Author Danielle Steel has written many books, and some are forgettable for me, but there are a few that are everything I could want in a story, and this is one of those.Brigitte Nicholson went through something as a child, and as a result is perfectly content to live a mediocre and safe life with no adventure, excitement, or any possibility of experiencing any risks that could be painful Until she has no choice, and in desperation and begging from her mother volunteers to assist her with her gen [...]

    Karen Sheldon
    Such an enjoyable story This book was a pleasant surprise for me A mother wants to find out about her ancestors So when her daughter loses her job and also her boyfriend, she goes to France to do the family s history research Finding out that in the late 1700 s a Sioux woman was listed as one of her ancestors The story then follows how the Native American woman s life led her to France.i didn t want the story to finish,

    Linda Bargas
    First Steel book I ve read in a long time I got tired of the same storyline in every book Luckily, this book had a slightly different take with the enjoyable historical novel on the Dakota Sioux, as well The Brigitte side of the book was typical and the ending was a bit too pretty, but that s Steel for you.

    Shannon Rodriguez
    I thought the beginning of the book was pretty slow, but it also matched up with how Brigitte s life was going Things began to get interesting when she researched her long lost relatives My absolute favorite part was toward the end of the book, and it was very memorable I enjoyed this book so much than I thought I would when I started reading it.

    Ellen
    Audio book read by Arthur Morey I really enjoyed listening to this audio book the story of Wachiwi was especially interesting And in the end Brigitte finds love again and a new life in Paris after researching her family history.

    Mary
    First few chapters were redundant, then finally the plot and characters became interesting Especially the Sioux ancestor parts were my favorite As usual, a happy upbeat ending

    Kathy
    Different, interesting story Stars lost for repetitive narrative, as I find in most Danielle Steele books.
