As a devoted mother, Veronique Parker has dedicated herself to her three daughters, before and since her divorce.  
Her world is turned upside down when her former husband dies suddenly, leaving her and their daughters astonishing inheritances: a painting of mysterious provenance, a château in the south of France, the freedom to pursue their dreams, and a shocking revelation from the past.   
The precious gifts he left will lead them on a journey certain to change Veronique and her daughters’ destinies in the most surprising of ways . . .

Danielle Steel is one my favourite authors. If you love family drama like I do then this is a must buy must read. Veronique Parker’s husband Paul had a blatant affair with a famous model that ended their marriage. But somehow after their divorce Veronique had forgiven him enough to become friends. Veronique had said she did it for the children.
Timmie Parker worked to find housing for eligible members of the homeless population. The youngest sister Joy lived in L.A where she was pursuing an acting career. Juliette ran a tiny sandwich shop and bakery in Brooklyn. The there was Bertie who was Paul’s son by his first marriage .
When their father dies each one reacts in a different way and when they are told what has been left in their fathers will to each of the girls, Bertie has been left out of his fathers will. And an even bigger shock is in store for all them.
Veronique has been left a painting that they bought on their honeymoon, but she wants to find out if it is a fake or if it worth any value.
Each character has a life that unfolds keeping readers hooked in to every page. I totally loved it!

  1. This sounds great! I’m definitely going to put this on my TBR list:)

    • Have you read any books by Danielle Steel? I have read a couple, as I love reading family drama books.

      • I haven’t but she’s been recommended to me quite a few times now and I love a good family drama book so if I enjoy Precious Gifts I’ll definitely be trying some more 🙂
