Precious Gifts

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLERHandsome, widowed, sophisticated, and utterly charming, Paul Parker won the heart of a wealthy young Frenchwoman as his second wife, the daughter of an American financier and the granddaughter of a major French art dealer. He had a difficult son and three very different daug... hters from two marriages. But, as irresistible as he was, he eventually shrugged off the demands of marriage and parenting to pursue a life as an international bon vivant.Raised by their mother with all the care and resolve their father lacked, the three Parker sisters have grown into vibrant, self-reliant young women: Timmie, the oldest, is a fiercely dedicated social worker in New York; sweet, nurturing Juliette, procrastinates in her studies; and sweet, nurturing Juliette, procra While they adore their glamorous, mostly absent father, he has left them with a legacy of impermanence and uncertainty in their own male relationships. Paul's son has gone from failure to failure without a strong role model to guide him, even as his stepmother makes excuses for him and he seethes with jealousy of his younger sisters.Now, after a long illness, Paul has passed away peacefully in his sleep, and his family has gathered to read his will. His son is forced to face reality as an adult as his final wishes are revealed. And his daughters see a different side of their father, one that depicts a caring man attempting to redeem himself by leaving a different, lasting legacy. He has left each of his children a very personal bequest, carefully crafted to assist them in achieving their own unique goals and finding true happiness. But the biggest surprise is reserved for Véronique, Paul's ex-wife: a long-buried secret that shakes her world and sets her free. The story of a man's last wish to make a difference—and the loved ones he leaves behind finally fulfilling their destinies—Precious Gifts is bursting with indelible characters and emotional complexity as it takes readers from New York and Los Angeles to the southwestern United States. It's a deeply moving exploration of the rich territory of loss, inheritance, and reawakening—Danielle Steel at the pinnacle of her literary prowess—inspiring and uplifting.
