Hey friends, here is wishing you all a very Happy Sunday… So what is cooking at your end? Pretty much I suppose. Here I am with another review. I wanted to post something different this time but this book has stopped me from doing it. Coming again from Sidney Sheldon, this book is completely different from his other books. After reading a few books of Sidney Sheldon, I can put forth that all his books are completely different from each other. The book is presented in three parts: Morning, Noon and Night.
The story begins with the business magnet trying to hide from someone. Wherever he goes he finds that there is somebody following him, so he makes plans with the help of his bodyguard to escape. Running away from people who were following him, he finally boards his yacht along with his bodyguard. He is happy that he has escaped. But his bodyguard is not very much happy about it as the sea seems to be very violent. However, yielding to his boss’s pressure he gives away and boards along with him. In the midway,
The next part of the story focuses on the children of the deceased man. They all gather for the funeral of their father. The youngest son and the daughter are accompanied by their spouses (the eldest son being a divorcee). This line plays a role of great importance in the entire story. The D Day arrives. The funeral is conducted and then the attorney lands with the will and reads out that the property has to be equally divided amongst all his children. The attorney stresses on the point. The children are taken into the past of their father. They get to know that their father had an affair with their caretaker and she had got pregnant. He didn’t want her to have the child and so she had left the place. The attorney makes a mention that now the daughter can come and make a claim for the property. The main plot is around. Our heroine is none other than the daughter of the deceased man and the caretaker.
There happens to be lot confusion from then on. A girl lands claiming to be the daughter, to make sure the eldest son carries out various tests to ensure that she is not a fake. She is proved to be the real daughter. But, she is actually not. Then, where is the real daughter? How did the fake land? How was it that the tests failed to reveal the truth? These are few questions that pop in to your mind. The answer to your questions unveils the entire drama. The real daughter is far away, leading a very simple life. Being a hard worker she wins accolades from her bosses. She is completely unaware of who her father was. The moment she gets to know, she has the strong urge to go and meet her family, her sister and brothers (not for money, but for the sake of love and affection of the family). Her roommate forces her to go. She finally starts after a lot of hesitation.
Now, the set up here is entirely different. There was a girl who already came over as the daughter. So the family thinks she is a fake. She feels sad about what has happened and decides to go back. But, she finds her life in danger. The young partner of the attorneys of her father comes to her rescue and gives her shelter in his house. The life of the other three children turns out to be a big mess. The eldest son is in love with a guy, the fashion designer is being blackmailed and the youngest son is in to drugs. The young attorney starts getting a clear picture of everything that has happened since the death of the man. He unfolds the entire sequence of events.
The book promises a lot of suspense and lives up to it as the suspense unfolds one after the other slowly. Till the last page you will not know what is going to happen. This is something which makes you read the book with lot of enthusiasm. Like every other book of Sidney Sheldon, this book has a blend of everything. So, what’s the need to think twice! Just grab the book and relish it like a yummy dish…
See you soon with another interesting review….
