At the age of thirty-eight, Brigitte Nicholson has a job she likes, a man she loves, and a book she's writing that she will finish--someday. Someday is Brigitte's watchword. Someday she and Ted will clarify their relationship. Someday she will stop playing it so safe. Then, on a snowy day in Boston, Brigitte's life is jolted and everything she has counted on changes. As she struggles to plot a new course, Brigitte agrees to help her mother on a family genealogy project and makes a stunning discovery that reaches back to the French aristocracy. How did Brigitte's mysterious ancestor Wachiwi, a Dakota Sioux, travel from the Great Plains to the French court of Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette? How did she come to marry into Brigitte's family? What is the truth behind the tantalizing clues in the fragmented, centuries-old records? Traveling from South Dakota to Paris, following the threads of Wachiwi's life, Brigitte finds herself in the forefront of her own story.

Probably my favourite of all her books, as she delves into the history of the French revolution, as well as Sioux history.

Had almost quit reading her books. They got to be too predictable and boring. This one was great. I began reading it with trepidation but got hooked right away. Loved the genealogy involved. Hope she writes more like this.

Not a usual Danielle Steel book. I liked the Genealogy part in it and the story that was involved. Very nicely told keeping the time period involved in mind.

One of the best books by Danielle Steel that will be added to my favorites! I love the genealogical aspect as I'm also researching interested in genealogy. I got caught up in the story and it made me want to pursue even further the family history!
