Daddy
Daddy | Danielle Steel
6 posts | 7 read | 1 to read
Oliver Watson's world suddenly dissolves around him when Sarah, his wife of eighteen years, returns to Harvard to get her master's degree. Oliver is left on his own, with three children and a freedom he never wanted and doesn't completely understand. His family's needs and demands suddenly consume his life. When Oliver's mother is diagnosed as having Alzheimer's disease and dies soon thereafter, Oliver's father's life is changed as well. Braver than his son with less of a future before him, George Watson, at seventy-two, quickly embraces new relationships and, eventually, a new life. The sudden changes come as a shock to both father and son. Ben, Oliver's oldest son, rejects his father and reaches outward, under the illusion that he is grown-up and can make it on his own. Melissa, the middle child, blames Oliver for her mother's desertion. And Sam, the "baby," is too shaken to deal with it at all. Now the only parent, Daddy must somehow cope this, his troubled family and explore a world of new responsibilities, new women, and new experiences. Each of the three men must start a new life: Oliver in New York and then in Los Angeles with his children; once he faces the biggest change in his life; his widowed father with the woman next door; and seventeen-year-old Ben with his girlfriend and baby. Nothing is as it was before... nothing is as they once thought it would be. But in the end, different is better... different is more... for each of themand especially for "Daddy." From the Paperback edition.

Day 3: Heartbreak

This was my first Danielle Steel read and it wrecked me. I was about 15 or 16 when I read this and felt every single feel for the main character. It's a good read and I definitely recommend it.

The books I usually recommend are ones that have left quite an impression on me at some point. I won't use Harry Potter, because that's just a given 😊

📚 Daddy by Danielle Steel
📚 Crave by Tracy Wolff
📚 Her Darkest Nightmare by Brenda Novak
📚 Cowboy It's Cold Outside by Lori Wilde

*I've been reading Danielle Steel since college days. But over the years I found it repetitive or predictable.
*This one for a change has a male protogonist who manages a household with three kids and a dog with a little help from a housekeeper/cook.
*The mom decides she needs more in life and leaves the family to Persue a degree.
*The kids react to her departure in different way and Oliver,the daddy, manages everything or.does he?!
