    • Once upon a time many years ago a teenaged me loved this book. That girl loved the history and romance of ocean liners and everything Edwardian. That girl also didn't know how many other well written fiction books were written about Titanic. Teenaged me grew up and some twenty (give or take a year or two) years later picked this book up again to see if the magic was there. It wasn't. I barely made it past the Titanic chapters I was so angry. The history was not only off, but she basically made i [...]

    • Oddly enough, I actually felt like reading Danielle Steel last night! Although I own at least ten of her books, she is not an author I read often, and in this case, actually reread. I enjoy her books, but it's a kind of guilty pleasure, like watching days of our lives or something. But still, I read it in one sitting, so it's all good.Firstly, the Titanic disaster has always been something I read about with deep sadness, and this book is no exception. The first time I read this book I was in tea [...]

    • What a soulful book this is! I loved each and every part of this tantalizing tale. I have never read any character as charming as Edwina. This is one such book that can move you to tears. The kind where you get emotionally connected to the story. Danielle Steel's magical words will stay in my heart forever. Looking forward to read more of her works.

    • This is yet another beautiful book written by Danielle Steel. Being inspired by the tragedy of Titanic, Danielle Steel weaves a story about a family who survived the tragedy. Having lost both parents and finance, Edwina struggles to bring up her siblings and run the family business. Although suffering from her own grief, she nevertheless put her feelings secondary to play both the mother and father role to her younger siblings. In Edwina, Ms. Steel has created a strong, courageous woman whom rea [...]

    • If you enjoy fiction reads based around The Titanic, then you NEED to read this book. So heartbreaking and emotional, looking at that fatal night and beyond and how survivors had to learn to cope. A must read!

    • un livre "waste of time" oui c'est ça un livre classique mais c'est pas le genre de livre classique qui vous attire a le terminer malheureusement il etait ma premiere lecture de danielle steel

    • A minha opinião:Danielle Steel soube aproveitar, e a meu ver bem, a trágica história do até então maior navio do mundo, o Titanic, e fazer um fantástico romance. De facto, seis das principais personagens viriam a sobreviver daquele que na altura se diziam ser inafundável fazendo-nos seguir as suas vidas durante e após a catástrofe. Edwina, e a sua família, tinha viajado até Inglaterra para comunicar aos seus tios, Liz e Rupert, o seu casamento com Charles, que se realizaria em Agosto [...]

    • No greater bookI have read many books by Danielle Steel but none have ever moved me the way this has. No greater love is a story about courage human endurance and most of all love. The book is based around the Winfield family and there tragic trip aboard the fated Titanic. The Winfield's have travelled to England in order to celebrate there eldest daughter's engagement to a young gentleman who is now accompanying them home to America onboard the Titanic for her maiden voyage. The tragedy unfolds [...]

    • It's more of a 2.5 rating.Word of warning: only the beginning of the book is set on the Titanic, so don't pick this up if you're interested in only reading about the doomed ship. However, it's a lovely exploration of familial bonds and surviving that traumatic night.Everything about it screams of the cheesy, almost airport paperback, novels your mum or great aunt secretly read but I found it increasingly difficult to put down, helped by the fact it's exceptionally easy to read [anyone looking at [...]

    • Achei incrivelmente pobre,este romance, comparativamente ao potencial do enredo. O tema "Titanic" parece afundar-se no dia-a-dia aborrecido desta família. A Edwina (irmã que emerge da desgraça com a responsabilidade de cuidar dos irmãos órfãos) fez-me chamar-lhe estúpida em vez de bondosa. É esse o problema das personagens da Steel - são sempre mártires. Aborrece-me seriamen - ora vejam: têm sempre infâncias infelizes, pais ausentes - ou muito bonzinhos, que morrem - e são sempre es [...]

    • Because I’m a sucker for all things Titanic, I grabbed this book from the library booksale shelf several years ago. This is the first Danielle Steel novel I’ve read. I liked it a lot because of the subject material, because it falls into my favorite genre (historical fiction), but mostly because it was a really good story. Edwina’s unselfish care of her siblings after the deaths of her parents and fiancé is heartbreakingly beautiful. She never thinks of all that she is missing in life exc [...]

    • Between 2.5 and 3 stars. I would've loved this book in middle school! I liked the Titanic aspect and it surprised me that this was written before the movie came out. The elements of the boarding, first class life, and the sinking were exactly like the movie. I didn't like the flow of them book and it would definitely have been edited way down had it been written in current time. There were no real paragraphs or start/stop to people's thoughts. The titanic part is over relatively quickly and then [...]

    • it is a good book.talks about 6kids that lost parents on a titanicd the elder daughter lost a fiance as well.She had to be strong,give up some of the things to take care of her brothers and sisters.She had to run her fathers company in the hope that the elder son will graduate to come and run the company.Unfortunatly he died in a millitary war and they had to deal with another loss and @ the end she sold the company.It talks about the great love that this lady has for her siblings.She loved them [...]

    • if titanic got you bawling at the top of your lungs, this will make you want to scream all the more. packed with a very well-written plot centering on the effect on an innocent family due to the very tragic TITANIC accident decades ago, this book will make you rethink of your own actions. it will make you wonder if you really did the right decision. you'll fall in love with edwina the main character. you gotta love her spirit and her zest for bringing up her younger brothers and sisters while le [...]

    • Le subí el puntaje de 2 a 3 estrellasnque lo justo serían 2.5tivamente es un gusto culposo. Lo escogí porque el tema Titanic me obsesionanque es muy poco lo que habla del naufragio y creo que podría haber sido más emotivo, me picó porque no podía dejar de leerlo.Los personajes son o muy buenos o muy malos, y muchas situaciones son predecibles y muy "rosas" porque todo les sale biena pesar de eso, me gustó es un Nobel, es una lectura fácil y entretenida, melodramática.

    • A story about the 'perfect' family and what happens to them after the sinking of the Titanic. Rather predictable and very simplistically written, which makes for a very fast and easy read. You feel bad for the family and all that the children endure during the sinking. But as their lives move on the story just gets a little grating on how the eldest daughter struggles to keep the family together. It is a nice story of overcoming fears and prejudices.

    • if u love the TITANIC, then read it. It is all about a girl who had to carry out the responsibility of her parent, who drown in The Titanic. Not only her parent but also her fiance, she carried his death in her mind till she met a cousin of his, who later 'set her free'.It's a novel full of suspence, love, emotoins, death, mischieves Cant say enough, just get urs and u will never regret it. But get ready for tears.

    • Penso que este terá sido o primeiro livro de Danielle Steel que li, e ainda hoje adoro os livros dela. Uns melhores do que outros, mas nunca dou por perdido o tempo que passo a ler aos seus romances.Esta estória tem como plano de fundo o naufrágio do Titanic e apesar de dramatica, fala ainda de segundas oportunidades e de esperança.

    • I am not a huge Danielle Steel fan, but I have to list this as one of my favorite books of all time. It was the first book I read for just pure pleasure. I read this book the summer before I was a sophomore in college and it still remains one of my favorites. I loved the richness of the characters and the passage of time in the book through the Titanic, World War 1, etc.

    • Carte mai siropoasă ca asta nu am citit :D e atâta tragedie în ea, aşa banal prezentată, încât, nesimţita de mine, am râs în hohote la situaţiile povestite. Prea e încurcat totul, am o impresie că însăşi scriitoarea îşi schimba ideile la fiecare câteva pagini. O telenovelă scrisă, cu femei hipersensibile şi bărbaţi supereroi. :D

    • Hell yes I'm giving a Danielle Steel novel 5 stars. This is at least the 10th time I've read this since first picking it up during the Titanic-craze of 1996. It's got all the Steel hallmarks, done at their best. I read probably 20 of her others books throughout high school and this reminded me of just how fun and light they are. Might be re-reading more in the future. And I'm not ashamed.

    • Lovely and believable story. about the courage of human endurance through everything:family growth,terrible heart-wrenching tragedy,mystery,then healingwell written and highly recommend to everyone (paperback!)

    • Táto kniha bola vážne dobrá.Aj keď som zo začiatku mala v tom zmätok,ale keď som sa začítala,tak sa stránky obrácali veľmi rýchlo.Príbeh o Titanicu bol skvelý a ta bolesť a strata v tom príbehu tam bola citíť.7/10.

    • great readloved it. Daniell Steel is one of my favorite Authors. When she writes, it is like being right there through the whole story.

    • TEAR-JERKER!!! What a great book!!! It made me cry, but was a great story about love, family and selflessness.

    • Давным-давно маленькая девочка, посмотрев фильм "Титаник" захотела узнать о страшной катастрофе, погубившей корабль, как можно больше. Девочка читала романы Даниэлы Стил, и они ей очень нравились, и она взялась за этот, узнав, что события романа разворачиваются, в том числе, [...]

    • I had never read a Danielle Steel book before this one, and after years of seeing them lined up on the shelves at the book store in the vicinity of the likes of Julia Quinn and Nora Roberts, I seem to have gotten the preconceived notion that Steel's genre is romance. Despite what the title and setting would perhaps have you believe, "No Greater Love" was egregiously soft in the romance department. Out of four-hundred or so pages, our protagonist spends roughly less than fifty of them engaged in [...]

    • CaliforniaThe writing style was too repetitive for me - when Edwina thought about Charles it was almost a word for word repeat of the last time she thought about him,she had lost him and she wanted no one else only Charles . Her thoughts about her parents, fit with her anger towards them but were also very repetitive. Tears streamed down cheeks more often than I cared to count and someone was always telling Edwina she was missing out on life and needed to get married.Edwina is the center of the [...]
