"When U.S. troops occupy Germany, friends Jakob and Emmanuelle are saved from the terrible fate of so many in the camps. With the help of sponsors, they make their way to New York. In order not to be separated, they allow their friendship to blossom into love and marriage, and start a new life on the Lower East Side, working at grueling, poorly paid jobs. Decades later, through talent, faith, fortune, and relentless hard work, Jakob has achieved success in the diamond business, invested in real estate in New York, and shown his son, Max, that America is truly the land of opportunity. Max is a rising star, a graduate of Harvard with friends among the wealthiest, most ambitious families in the world. And while his parents were thrown together by chance, Max chooses a perfect bride to start the perfect American family"--Provided by publisher.

This book is a slight departure from Danielle Steel's usual formula in that the leading character is a young man not a Superwoman. The story starts off with Jakob and Emanuelle at the Buchwald concentration camp, their move to America and success due to hard work. Max, their son, grows up sheltered in their love and is determined to prove himself by his own efforts. He does so and becomes a tycoon much talked about. Max chooses Julie to be his wife. Emanuelle and Jakob don't think she is the right person for him but don't say so. When the marriage gets rocky, Steel does not blame only Julie. Instead she blames Max too. This makes for more realistic novel.
