Sidney Sheldon

Kate Blackwell is one of the richest women in the world. She is an enigma, a woman surrounded by unanswered questions. Her father was a diamond prospector who struck it rich, her mother the daughter of a crooked Afrikaaner merchant. On her ninetieth birthday ghosts haunt Kate’s thoughts.

Sheldon is my mother’s favorite author. I haven’t really read him until there was no book to read but his. Now I know why my mother loves him. This is the first book that I have read. I love Katherine’s character, she’s tough and scheming. She manipulated everyone’s life around her for her convenience, this cost her son.

This is a saga of a millionaire family across five generations starting from South Africa when a penniless Scot immigrant Jamie Blackwell try to find his luck to make the beginning of a huge fortune in the diamond business, to his daughter Kate in her 90s distressed in finding a successor to run the business empire she built.

The whole book is filled with almost every human passion and emotion you can think of: greed, fear, jealousy, love, sex and death. It is a one great story and the plot progresses at very fast pace. The characters are memorable and are unique in their own ways. The twist and turns are jaw-dropping that you couldn’t help but to turn page after page. I am sure you could not put the book down. So, if you don’t have the time, don’t start reading it!
