44 Charles Street: A  Novel - Danielle Steel It's been quite a while since I read a Danielle Steel book, but I always loved her books. So when I got this one from PBS, I was anxiously looking forward to reading it.I'm not sure exactly what went wrong with this book, but it just didn't capture my attention and the characters never became 'real' for me. I think part of it was too many contradictions; I hate his womanizing ways....now I love him and I'm going to marry him, I love this house....now I'm going to sell it, she's such a sweet and innocent girl.....now she's a sex crazed nympho, I dislike my mother....now she's interesting.If you are in the mood for a Danielle Steel book, don't choose this one.
