    I read this book when I was very young and have revisited it over the years. This book is really one of my favorites, but I couldn't bring myself to give it 5 stars. Crystal and Spencer (the main characters in the story) obviously love one another very much, however, they make so many mistakes and it takes years and years for them to end up together. So many years wasted - it literally gave me anxiety attacks. I found myself actually getting angr...

    4 stars.-Story of Crystal Wyatt. (Her life was always surrounded by Hollywood. In Dreams at first and in reality when she was 18.)I was not much intrigued by the book, but my friend Ann was, and I think it's an emotional roller-coaster for a lot others. This book will make you cry tears of happiness.The ending felt rushed and I wanted more on Crystal,Spencer and Zeb's future (family)life at least as an epilogue.I wish there was more pages to the ...

    D.S and LaVyrle Spencer books are like a little high. They’re guilty pleasure authoresses—legends that set the tone for many current books in the genre, and sometimes you just crave being in their saccharine worlds. my least favourite I’ve read of hers because the characters annoyed me to no end. That’s part of the charm though since they have humanlike characteristics and why the stories rope you in.

    DNF. Abandoned at 15% because I couldn't take another mention of Crystal's "amazingness" or "beauty" or how she was in love with a guy she met once and who was twice her age. (Shudder)

    Read this book as a teenager and I always find myself coming back to it! All time favorite.

    Reading the first 50 pages was a bit boring 'cuz it was all about how beautiful and graceful Crystal was. And Spencer. That was a bit odd for me at first. A 26-year-old guy fell in love with a 14-year-old girl at first sight? I was like "Nah". But later it became OK. You'll see it.Elizabeth. I liked her when Spencer first met her. She was all intelligent and beautiful and smart. Well, that made us dislike her later. He loved her. He really really...

    My friends and I, when we were freshman in college, got a hold of a copy of this book and read it aloud to each other each night, a chapter at a time, and we laughed until we wanted to die every single night. It was good times.

    Another heart touching book!I really don’t understand how Danielle Steel could write so touching book.Or maybe because it’s always based on a girl.A girl (Crystal) has known this guy (Spencer) when she was fourteen years old-he did ask her to marry him-but not the right time –always! –They find each other again once he’s engaged to another girl –then again after he gets married to his fiancée- Then he realized that he does not love h...

    A sweet love story about a girl who wants to become a hollywood star and a guy involved in the military. I've read quiet a few books of Danielle Steel and i've cried and laugh a lot with most of them, but sadly this wasn't one of the finest works from Mrs. Steel. I feel that the story needed a little more of strenght, it was a little more predictable that it should have (when you've read a lot you kindda see it comming). But even though, it is a ...

    I really enjoyed this book, though I don't agree with some of the choices that the characters made. Steel repeats herself constantly, telling us over and over how beautiful Crystal is, as if we'd forget that she, or any of Steel's characters for that matter, are anything but stunningly beautiful. But overall a great read about one woman's ability to survive.

    A nice love story about a girl who wanted to become a Hollywood star. The problems and bad people she had to face which is a reality. It's the harsh reality shown that is often seen in this stream. The guy is involved in the military and the two people are not able to meet until the end but thank god, it was it was a happy ending that kept the good mood.

    It was a little harsh what happened to the girl but I guess that's sort of reality. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes Danielle Steel - I think it's one of her best. I enjoyed it all the way through and I didn't want it to end. It was great.

    This book started out much butter than it ended. Parts of her books are so believable and then it spins off in to the fantasy world. The relationship between Crystal & her mother after her Dad died wasn't believable. It also seemed rushed towards the end. It was an ok book though.

    This is a great book about multiple personality disorder. It was really fascinating to me to hear about a girl that dealt with a trauma and how that developed into MPD. I would definately recommend this book.

    I read this when I was 13 and it was my favorite book then, but I doubt I would still love it as much.

    Lo más admirable de Danielle Steel es cómo puede hacer en las introducciones que los personajes divaguen por su vida y que no parezca forzado. La historia, que fue convertida en película, narra las tragedias que vive Crystal desde su adolescencia hasta que es una adulta, pero no se limita a hacerla parecer una pobre doncella que necesita ayuda (al menos no todo el libro).Sin embargo y pese a que parezca lo contrario, existen varios errores en ...

    DISAPPOINTMENT!! DISAPPOINTMENT!! that's what I felt after finishing this book.There were many years wasted in Crystal's and Spencer's love story and even the happy ending didn't satisfy me, I felt like it was rushed. I wanted the author to talk more about Spencer's and Crystal's life after he found out about his son, their marriage and what will happen to their careers ??(view spoiler)[Actually I preferred that Spencer and Crystal stayed togethe...

    Love was definitely lighting and thunder especially after reading of Spencer Hill & Crystal Wyatt's first encounter when she was only a child. Disturbing to some degree but I guess love isn't measured in numbers or is it?! Most frustrating fictional romance that I couldn't bring myself to stop reading until the very end.

    This book was given to me to read by a neighbor. It had been a long time since I had read any of her books, and can see now why I stopped. Besides being too long, the characters were not very believable and after enduring the plot, the book (no surprise) had a pat quick ending.

    I've read this to do my grandma a favor, to be honest.Not my genre at all and the main characters were kind of frustrating.

    This will move you to the point of rage and then bring you back to a state of joy and calm. You will go through the whole gamut of emotions with Crystal, as always, the female protagonist.Her rags-to-riches-to-joy story is a wonderful read for any reader who likes emotional books. There are parts in the middle where the reader will feel enraged, I very much did, at the injustice that happens to Crystal. These feelings will be all the more intense...
