Who knows how it really This cloth-bound special edition of Danielle Steel’s Until the End of Time is enhanced with gold leaf, comes with a special slip case, and is signed by the author.   Two couples, four decades apart. One believes that if lovers die, they find each other again in another life. Or perhaps they wind up as stars side by side in the sky, together forever. Who knows how it really ends? Danielle Steel breaks new ground in her career as a perennial New York Times bestseller with the poignant story of two parallel destinies, and the kind of love we all hope will be everlasting.   UNTIL THE END OF TIME   Bill is a dedicated young lawyer working at his family’s prestigious New York firm who leaves everything he trained for to follow his dream and become a minister in rural Wyoming. Jenny, his wife, is a stylist whose heart and soul are invested in fashion. She leaves the milieu and life she loves to join him. The certainty they share is that their destinies are linked forever.   Fast forward thirty-eight years. Robert is a hardworking independent book publisher in Manhattan, who has given up all personal life to build his struggling business. He is looking for one big hit novel to publish. Lillibet is a young Amish woman, living as though in the seventeenth century, caring for her widowed father and three young brothers on their family farm. In secret at night, by candlelight, she has written the novel that burns within her, and gets it into Robert’s hands, wrapped in her hand-stitched apron. He falls in love first with the book, and then with the woman he has never met, living in the sequestered world of the Amish—a world without telephones, computers, electricity, modern conveniences, or cars. Although Lillibet faces banishment from her family and community, she embraces the opportunity to publish her novel, and is irresistibly drawn to the man who has heard her voice. Destiny is at work here. Fate draws her from her horse-and-buggy life toward his, and the publication of her novel.   In the hands of master storyteller Danielle Steel, these two remarkable relationships come together in unexpected and surprising ways, as lovers are lost, and find each other again. If it is true that real love lasts forever and lovers cannot lose each other, then Until the End of Time will not only comfort and fascinate us, as destiny does her dance, but it will give us hope as well. Love and fate are powerful, irresistible forces, as Steel proves to us here, in a book about courage, change, risk, and hope... and love that never dies.

She writes like she wrote a timeline, then went back and filled out words after events..sorta like.. thanksgiving- came around and it was full of festivities, next thing the couple knew, it was christmas- and time flew by fast march- arrived shortly after that and this happened and that happened. very little dialoug, very flat writing, you don't get to know any of the characters. in the first story she went through 8 months of the characters lives in about 4 chapters. don't even get me started on the second story. i dont think she did any research when it comes to the amish way of life. its very very inaccurate. when someone is shunned, thats it. you have to repent before the entire church to get unshunned. and writing a book? and her mom approving? and her moms best friend? are you kidding me? and i'd REALLY like to know how her little brother knew who frankenstein was. this book, frankly, sucked. i hated it, i didnt even want to finish it to find out what happened, i just wanted to finish it to get it over so i could properly write a review of the entire thing. i know that if i had written this book, and sent it to a publisher, it never would have made it past the slush pile. the two stories were supposed to be about true love and how it comes back after death or whatever, and reincarnation, blahblah. so when she tried to tie the two stories together to show the first couple and the second couple were on in the same, it fell very very flat. and didn't convince me, and left me actually confused. without giving spoilers, the second person realizes what happened, and reincarnation. if they really were reincarnated, then how did the second person meet the first?? i dont get it.

Until the End of Time is a double treat because it contains two short stories, that are connected, about couples who succeed in their relationships in spite of adversity from their families and other environment concerns. Author Steel’s appears to write on subjects from life experiences because all her characters are relatable. I also enjoy the readers selected to narrate her stories because they read author Steel’s stories as though she’s written their personal stories as narrator Nick Podehl did with Until the End of Time.

    I am a big fan of Danielle Steel so I was very much looking forward to reading this! Until The End Of Time is a beautiful beautiful story. Danielle weaves two separate love stories set nearly four decades apart together with a few vital themes and similarities – love, understanding, fate, destiny and hope. In 1975, we meet Bill, a lawyer working in New York. He decides he wants to follow his dream and become a minister. Bill’s wife Jenny has worked hard in her career to get to where she is now, b I am a big fan of Danielle Steel so I was very much looking forward to reading this!

Bill’s wife Jenny has worked hard in her career to get to where she is now, but together they leave their old life behind to pursue Bill’s dreams, with the knowledge that whatever happens, they are facing it together. In the present day, Lillibet lives in a strict Amish community, but she has ambitions and dreams of one day being a writer, composing her novel by candlelight at night. Robert is a hard-working man, on the hunt for one big hit novel to publish. When Lillibet’s work falls into his hands, he discovers not only a great book, but a new person to connect with… I absolutely loved Until The End Of Time! It was so romantic and at the same time so touching. Danielle’s words moved me and made me think, so much so that my mind was still with the characters long after I had turned the last page. The characters were wonderfully written, as I progressed throughout the story I really felt as if I knew them on a personal level, as if they lived next for to me and as if we were all friends in real life. What I loved most about the story is how special the relationships between the main characters were. Danielle did show sadness and pain in the story, but she also showed so much love and strong connections through the characters – everything was so vivid that at times I was openly crying over the scenes, and at other times I was smiling with happiness. There is such a range of emotions portrayed in this wonderful book that you can’t help but be touched by the words. I would thoroughly recommend this! This is truly a very unique, emotional, magical and special book that deserves to be read and re-read all over again. Until The End Of Time is an enchanting story about hope, dreams, compassion, dedication, sacrifice, courage, and above all, the message that true love is forever.

    I think it's time for Danielle Steel to give up writing. I mean, lets face it. Her books flat out suck. Her earlier books were ok but these last few novels that she has written are awful. I know I said that I would never read another book of hers after the Big Girl fiasco but for reasons unknown I felt like I had to give this one a try. Big mistake. Big Big Big mistake!!! The paragraphs are way too long(but aren't they in all her books??) the writing horrible and the lack of research on the Ami I think it's time for Danielle Steel to give up writing.

If you're going to write a book make sure you thoroughly research the topic before you start writing about it!! And the writing!!! Don't even get me started on the horrible unintelligent writing. I have read sixth grade book reports that were more intelligently written that this!!! I only wish that I had the time back that it took me to read this book. I would've used it to read something much more enjoyable.

Especially the first part. And when I read these books and all the love spread in 'em, I know that somewhere up in skies God is happy with me and that's why He lets me experience this emotion which expands the heart infinitely and I know it alright to love someone so much that you forget the "I" When you love there's should be this feeling which makes you smile and when your partner smiles you know in your gut that this is how it is supposed to be. Taking care of each other. Talking to each other and the best part was this only. They always talked to each other. There was no drama, no hidden agendas, only love. And when there's this much intensity of love you just let it engulf you and take you to places where it blossoms, all you feel is fragrance and you suddenly you realize you've become love. The best part of the book was 1st half. Jenny was a career oriented woman, she rose to a success and it took her 14 years to reach there, but there comes a time when you've to decide to what you will give priority, your family or your career. She chose her husband. I'm in no place to say anything about that because when you'll read this book you'll know that when it comes down to family there's nothing that matters more. And I wish to all that's holy and sacred out there to love this selflessly Until the End of Time I believe when you die you become stars and shine in dark for those who love and wish upon you to be with their love & some of us hope that we find that one heart which fits with us and beat together Until the End of Time May we always find love and believe in it. I'm in love with you Danielle Steel :)

    Why do I keep doing this to myself? I just have to face the cold hard truth that Danielle Steel does not appeal to me at 53 like she did when I was 23 or even 33… I just keep winding up disappointed. I enjoyed this book until the last 45 minutes when I felt like Danielle said, “I’m tired of this book, I’m going to write a quick, unbelievable and mediocre ending just to get done with it.” For that reason, it’s getting 2 stars instead of the 3 that I was prepared to give it.

I really enjoyed the “first half”. Second half, not so much. I felt like the Amish angle was peripheral at best; guess I’ve read too much Beverly Lewis which is a much richer representation of Amish life. Oh well.

    Does love transcend time and does it continue long after our physical bodies are gone? That is the premise behind this Steel book. While the first half was absolutely lovely and about two people who are so in love, they would do anything for each other the second half paled in comparison. The second half picked up with two characters so different, living two polar opposite lives that it seems too far fetched. Though, with all Steel books, I did finish it quickly and enjoyed it but it would have Does love transcend time and does it continue long after our physical bodies are gone?

Though, with all Steel books, I did finish it quickly and enjoyed it but it would have been far more relateable had the second half of the story been about two similar characters to the first set. I found the second part to be more than a little bit of an after thought, something she did not give much thought too. I also believe that after thinking about it, it followed a bit pike an outline of bullet points and she filled in the gaps after. Had she made the second half more realistic with the two characters and the love more tangible, relateable something you could reach out and grasp with your fingertips as she did the first half, she would have had this be a 5 star book.

    Story of 2 couples whose stories intermingle by the end of the book. First couple moves from NYC -- and her busy career in the fashion industry -- to the middle of nowhere in Montana after husband becomes a minister. Second couple: Small book publisher meets Amish girl when she submits a novel she wrote. SPOILER ALERT: After the first couple's lives end in tragedy, the story of the new couple begins and, by the end, it is revealed that they were reincarnated as the 2nd couple.

I definitely think that the writing in this DS novel was better than most -- low on redundancies, inconsistencies and run on sentences -- and I liked all of the characters but, overall, the purpose of the story seemed too contrived. I'm giving this book a 3.5 star rating -- it's good, not great -- because I did enjoy reading it, but, overall, the story fell flat. I would only recommend this book to great fans of DS, or someone looking for a quick, light read. Nearly 3.5 stars.

I think because the underlying theme of undying love, and reincarnation where lovers find each other again even if they don’t know it, resonates so deeply with my current relationship I was just instantly hooked.

    I will start by saying that I have read many DS books in the past. Although her books in the past few years have been disappointing, the description inside the jacket caught my attention in the library so I though I'd give it a try. I gave this book 2 stars for the sole reason that I enjoyed the first story. Although far from typical DS writing, the love story was believable. I am confused, however, by DS trying to convince us that an Episcopalian minister (or any Christian minister for that mat I will start by saying that I have read many DS books in the past.

I am confused, however, by DS trying to convince us that an Episcopalian minister (or any Christian minister for that matter - denomiation unimportant) would believe in reincarnation. How absurd!!! I also feel this story abruptly ended, and the way in which it ended was somewhat predictable. Story 2 is where she officially lost me. The story was horribly written, unbelievable and unresearched. The relationship development between characters was so incredibly fast that it seemed far fetched and unrealistic. I feel as if DS wrote part 2 as an afterthought, grasping at straws to make any kind of connection she could. I feel that she only twisted ideas around from story 1 to try to make some sort of vague similarity between the stories, such as families and backgrounds, etc. This was ineffective and immature coming from a seasoned writer such as DS. I see no effort in story 2, and feel a fresh writer could have done better. The supposed proof of the two stories connecting made no sense whatsoever, and only further confused the reader by the very few times she would attempt to make a connection. Story 2 reminds me of a student meeting a deadline and counting the exact number of required words, regardless of content and substance. As a friend and neighbor of Amish and Mennonite families, I am deeply disturbed by how DS makes it seem like their loving, structured, God-centered communities are more like prison camps. She couldn't be more wrong. DS, next time you take a stab at Christian characters, please research first. This book made you sound very unintelligible to anyone who knows anything about Christianity and Amish communities, regardless of personal belief. It seems as if you took stereotypes of what you THINK the Amish are like and that was the basis for part 2. Solid reseach, effort and care may have saved part 2. I won't be reading any further DS books. She has lost her touch and I have been bored and disappointed too many times in the recent years. She isn't what she used to be.

    The first two thirds of this novel can stand alone as one book. The ending is shocking but it would have been very effective to stop there.

    Danielle Steel is like a part of being an American woman, she writes novels that resinate thorough possible real life situations and give us all a good joy when she spins a story. I like the concept of this novel and the fact that it was spilt into two stories. Although the story was a slow paced kind of story it had a kind of spell in it that kept me drawn to it, I couldn't get enough of it. The second story was even more enthralling.

    This is the book I have been waiting for Danielle Steel to write for quite awhile. I was worried she was losing her touch after disappointing books like Best Friends Forever and 44 Charles street. The stories of Bill and Jenny as well as Robert and Lillibet seemed to come alive on the page (and it all makes sense in the end). I had a very hard time putting this book down. The storylines were believable and you found yourself rooting for these characters. The ending was very strong and heartfelt.

I cannot say enough good things about this book and hope to see more of the same from this author in future titles.

    As always, I was caught up in Steel's characters and shed a few tears along the way. I would have given this 5 stars if the book ended after the first section. I totally loved Bill and Jenny as they built careers in NYC, followed their dreams, then took a leap of faith to move to rural Wyoming and build a rich and fulfilling life there. The message of their love and their ability to touch other people's lives was strong and beautiful. After their story ended, though, we meet another couple.

The message of their love and their ability to touch other people's lives was strong and beautiful. After their story ended, though, we meet another couple. Just as loving, just as interesting, but I didn't feel the connection with them that I had with Bill and Jenny. Bob is a struggling publisher in NYC, and Lillibet is an Amish girl living as though still in the 17th century. When the book she wrote providentially crosses his desk, things move quickly as they both leap into new situations and change their lives. It was certainly interesting to learn more about the Amish, although I'm surprised that someone once shunned could actually be "un-shunned" and am not convinced that could happen, no matter what the circumstances. I understand the connection Steel was making between these two couples, but the ending seemed a little too pat and contrived. But, all that being said, the emotion Steel creates always overwhelms me and makes for a very heartfelt read.

    It is a nice sweet double story but tooooo romantic for my taste... and the second story was a slightly imposed on us in a hurry not like the first one

    I haven't read anything by Danielle Steel in a long time. Although this is different than other Danielle Steel's books I really enjoyed it. A lot of other reviews critize this book but I really enjoyed it. It was the type of book that made me want to keep reading.

It is two separate stories that intertwine; each is a love story about couples who make love work despite their extremely different backgrounds. In the first story, Bill is a lawyer who comes from a privileged background and Jenny comes from a working class family but has done well for herself in the fashion world. The characters and their struggles were realistic and ones that I could relate to. The ending was unexpected, for me at least,but I enjoyed the story. The two main characters in the second half of the book were a book publisher and a young Amish woman. I don't share the idea that when lovers die they find each other in another life but this idea not an overriding part of the book.

    Not my favorite DS book. Actually very disappointed. This was the story of 2 couples who believe that when you die you come back as someone else. I don't believe this but even if I did how did the second couple come back as the first couple? There was nothing similar about them. The second women was labeled as Old Order Amish, this was not portrayed properly in my opinion. I have done a lot of reading on Amish and I felt this was so far out there for Amish in general but for Old Order Amish, it Not my favorite DS book. Actually very disappointed.

I did enjoy the story of Bill and Jenny but again just a little more unrealistic to me. Very un DS like.

    Okay, make fun of me. Danielle Steel, really? Yes, I like Danielle Steel. And I like her even more because she has managed to reinvent herself as an author. No more formulaic novels we use to be able to fortell before the book hit the shelf, but a more complex and deeper plot with characters that are human. This novel has a more mystic, almost religious tone, and that's okay with me, just a surprise. Two stories that manage to merge at the end,of such deep love between two people it transcends de Okay, make fun of me. Danielle Steel, really? Yes, I like Danielle Steel.

    A very fast easy read……and it just felt like reading two different books, and you could see the connection at the end coming from a long way. This is just something, light between the good reads. I found it hard to connect to the characters as it is written in the third person, and I always struggle with making any connections with this type of writing. Just like her last half a dozen books or so, they are nothing compelling like her older works, but I found it just ok and that’s a big just.

    I've read many Danielle Steel books, but its been awhile since I've enjoyed one as much as this one. I grew up in Lancaster County and although there were a couple of things that weren't exactly accurate for the Amish, most of it was accurate. Some of her latest books seemed very superficial and not about normal, average people, but this was a nice addition to her extensive catalog of stories. I give this book a solid 4 out of 5 stars.

    I stopped reading Danielle Steel a few years ago as I felt her books were becoming too predictable. Until the End of Time caught my eye so I thought I'd give the author another chance. I loved the book. It really kept me going, the characters were really defined and the storyline was good with many parts that either made you angry or happy. I am going to read more by Danielle Steel now. I stopped reading Danielle Steel a few years ago as I felt her books were becoming too predictable.

    2.5 stars. Two stories about how love transcends death and time. Bill and Jenny move from Manhattan to Wyoming seeking a quieter, more spiritual life when tragedy strikes. Robert, a publisher, and Lillibet, an Amish author, are brought together in New York City by her book. Feelings of familiarity immediately surface between the two.

    This story was a bit different from most of the Danielle Steel stories I've read . . . and I loved it!! Two love stories in one, intertwined about 40 years apart. Loved that the story is about down-to-earth, real people instead of the extremely wealthy characters that are most often in Danielle's stories. 8 out of 10 for me--very enjoyable read!!

    I loved the two love stories in this book...especially the second one; however, I am only giving it a 4-star rating as it had a supernatural twist that wasn't needed nor appreciated. Be real...people are not stars!!!
