Publisher's Summary

For the Wittgenstein family, the summer of 1915 was a time of both prosperity and unease, as the guns of war sound in the distance. But for eldest daughter Beata, it was also a summer of awakening. By glimmering Lake Geneva, the quiet Jewish beauty met a young French officer and fell in love. Knowing that her parents would never accept her marriage to a Catholic, Beata followed her heart anyway. As the two built a new life together, Beata's past would stay with her, and when Europe faces war once again, Beata must watch in horror as Hitler's terror threatens her family, even her daughter Amadea, who has taken on the vows of a Carmelite nun. As family and friends are swept away without a trace, Amadea is forced into hiding. Thus begins a harrowing journey of survival, first in the Nazi death camps and then as she escapes into the heart of the French resistance and finds a renewed sense of purpose. In the darkest moments of fear, Amadea will feel her mother's loving strength as the voices of lost loved ones echo powerfully in her heart. Amadea will meet an extraordinary man, British secret agent Rupert Montgomery, who will help her discover her place in an unbreakable chain between generations...between her lost family and her future.
From the elegant rituals of Europe's prewar aristocracy to the brutal desperation of Germany's death camps, Danielle Steel draws us into a vanished world, weaving an intricate tapestry of a mother's love, a daughter's courage, and the unwavering faith that sustained them, even in history's darkest hour.
Bonus Feature: Fine Things by Danielle Steel, narrated by Richard Thomas

But when Liz is stricken with cancer shortly after the birth of their first child, time becomes painfully short. Bernie meets his fate with courage and humor, and learns some of life's hard but precious lessons as he does.

Great Story, Great Narrator

This is an gripping story, start to finish. The story is rich with detail and description about the times and attitudes of the time. Simon Prebble's narration is wonderful. The voices are really welldone and give you the voice of each character. I'll not only buy more Danielle Steele books but stories narrated by Simon Prebble.

Echoes is an awesome reminder of our past!

Would you consider the audio edition of Echoes to be better than the print version?

I would imagine the print version would be just as good as the audio version and very hard to put down!

Who was your favorite character and why?

Behtta - a woman with class and dignity yet knows how to take a change. She knew how to love and be faithful to those she loved - no matter what.

Which character – as performed by Simon Prebble – was your favorite?

Simon Prebble was a great narrator - I didn't have one favorite as he was able to do a great job on all the characters.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I cried in the middle due to sadness and cried for joy at the end. A wonderful feel-good kind of cry.

Any additional comments?

A wonderful story of the Holocaust and the victims it targeted - no matter how small or far. This story will leave the reader wanting more...in a good way!
