Past Perfect by Danielle Steel










Past Perfect by Danielle Steel,  she “weaves a spellbinding story of two families living a hundred years apart who come together in time, opening the door to major events in early-twentieth-century history—and to a rare friendship.”

“Sybil and Blake Gregory have established a predictable Manhattan life, raising their three children—until Blake accepts a dream job as CEO of a San Francisco start-up and buys an irresistibly underpriced historic Pacific Heights mansion as their new home.”

“Past and present collide the night they move into the magnificent residence, when the original inhabitants briefly appear. In the ensuing days the Gregory’s meet the lively family who lived there a century ago: distinguished Bertrand Butterfield, his gracious wife Gwyneth, their young sons and daughters, and formidable Scottish matriarch Augusta and her eccentric brother Angus.  All long since dead.  All very much alive in spirit—and visible only to the Gregory’s.”

“Within these enchanted rooms, it is at once 1917 and a century later.  The two families have much to teach each other. And as the Gregory’s watch the past unfold while living their modern-day lives, they gratefully realize they have been given a perfect gift—beloved friends and the wisdom to shape their own future with grace from a fascinating past.”

Sybil is the main character of the story and she’s a woman after my own heart. She is confident, creative, honest forgiving, supportive and loving to everyone. Blake is a bit needy I find. He needs advise from other adults which is both end of the spectrum. But, Blake does one thing without advise which is to buy the house.  I also believe they have done a excellent job raising their children.  They don’t seem to fight between themselves which you do find in a lot of families.

Past Perfect by Danielle Steel has out done herself again.  I know you will enjoy it and you may purchase it at Amazon.  Have a good time reading Danielle Steel books.  Thank you (c)  Erma Friesen 2021
