All That Glitters, by Danielle Steel
It had surprisingly been many years since I read a Danielle Steel book—I used to read them all the time as a young girl, and I guess it took me rummaging through the grocery store shelf to remember how much I loved her stories!
I felt the wave of emotions, from grief and heartbreak to triumph and empowerment. All the feels!
In All That Glitters, I was transported to a world where I got to live life through the eyes of a young girl who had lost her parents—and her way—as she navigated one bad relationship after the other, though in a fascinatingly mature way. I found myself warning her, yelling at her, cheering her on and ultimately, satisfied with her evolvement and better decision making.
It was really nice to see the complexities of multiple relationships in a book instead of just a single one. It gave the book a richer kind of feel to the character development, and I appreciated a more modern style.
But it wasn’t just about Coco’s romances, and that was one of the things I loved most about the book.
Woven into the love stories were her trials and tribulations she faced with her parents’ untimely death, an opportune move to London, a new career, a loved one’s illness and more as she simultaneously supported her best friend with his own life issues.
