His daughters would never run his steel mills. He was only sixty-five, but his health had begun to fail over the past few years, and he preferred viewing the world from his peaceful perch in Croton-on-Hudson. Here, he could observe the world quietly, and it was a healthy, wholesome life for his two daughters.

Danielle Steel Biography - Danielle Fernandes Dominique Schuelein Steel born on 14th August, 1947, but more famously known as Danielle Steele is renowned all over the world for he. Her father’s name was John Schulein-Steel, who was a descendant of the founders and makers of Löwenbräu beer, and her mother’s name was Norma da Câmara Stone dos Reis, the daughter of a Portuguese diplomat. Her novels have also proven to be very popular for movie adaptations.

To look at one was to see the other.  For family, even the girls' own father, it was a constant guessing game.  For strangers, the surprise was overwhelming.  And for the twins Olivia and Victoria Henderson, two remarkable young women coming of age at the turn of the century, their bond was mysterious, marvelous, and often playful--a secret realm only they inhabited. Olivia and Victoria were the beloved daughters of a man who never fully recovered from his wife's death bearing them in 1893.  Shy, serious Olivia, born eleven minutes before her sister, had taken over the role of mother in their lush New York estate, managing not only a household but her rebellious twin's flights of fancy.  Free-spirited Victoria wanted to change the world.  She embraced the women's suffrage movement and dreamed of sailing to war-torn Europe.  Then, in the girls' twenty-first year, as the First World War escalated overseas, a fateful choice changed their lives forever. It began when Victoria's life was about to become a public scandal.  It led to a painful decision, and brought handsome lawyer Charles Dawson into the Henderson's life and family.  Hand-picked by the twins' father to save his daughter's reputation, Charles was still mourning his wife's death aboard the Titanic, struggling to raise his nine-year-old son alone, determined never to lose his heart again.  Charles wanted to believe that for the sake of his son he could make an unwanted marriage work.  But in an act of deception that only Olivia and Victoria could manage, the twins took an irrevocable step, which changed both their lives forever; and took one of the twins to the battlefields of France, the other into a marriage she longed for but could not have. From Manhattan society to the trenches of war-ravaged France, Mirror Image moves elegantly and dramatically through a rich and troubled era.  With startling insight, Danielle Steel explores women's choices: between home and adventure, between the love for family and the passion for a cause, between sacrifice and desire.  But at the heart of Mirror Image is a fascinating, realistic portrait of identical twins, two vastly different sisters who lead their lives and follow their destinies against a vivid backdrop of a world at war.

This book has a major flaw but I still loved it. Victoria and Olivia were identical twins who were very close and the book stated over and over again that the only people who could tell them apart were Bertie, the housekeeper, and Geoff, Charles' son. First, this is kinda insane. My first serious boyfriend had an identical twin and it is an amazing thing to see how 2 people are so physically alike. But after 2 minutes you can tell them apart, everyone could. I would not doubt which was which even in the dark. But let's say they were the exception to the rule. Once the twins switched what happened to Bertie and Geoff being able to tel them apart? Aside from this flaw I still loved the book. I was sad when it ended. That is a sign of a good book to me. I highly recommend Danielle Steele's The Ring, her best novel, to me. Also, Message from Nam, The Promise & Ghost are great books.

The story of identical twins got my attention, and is the reason I purchased this book. It was so slow, that I nearly stopped half way through. I kept reading because I was curious, and I read it on the Kindle, where it is a little more difficult to peek forward!

It was just plain corny. A perfect estate on the Hudson in NY. Two beautiful, glamorous, rich twins -- perfect in every way -- from the tiny waists to beautiful hair, delicate features, impeccable taste, horseback riding skills, blah, blah, blah. However, they are completely identical except for a small mole -- and except for their personalities. Olivia is the perfect attentive daughter, perfect flawless hostess, perfect sensitive sister, homemaker, etc. Victoria is the opposite--a completely self absorbed beauty searching for excitement in the early 1900's.
Victoria falls in love with a dashing, but very-married scoundrel. She gets pregnant, he dumps her, and (after a miscarriage) she narrowly avoids a huge scandal by being forced to marry the very guy her dear sister secretly loves. Of course, he's handsome, smart, successful, wonderful, and wants a mother for his perfect son.
After the perfect wedding, Victoria just can't get over the dastardly married guy who very cruelly and callously dumped her. Her new husband knows it all and still wants to make the marriage work, even though she completely avoids the dear boy, and rejects her understanding husband.
Most of the book leads up to the SWITCH, which is a fairly obvious after all the endless blathering about how identical they are. It seems like the author is just trying to add pages by rehashing how breathtakingly beautiful the twins are, how identical they look, how they switched when they were kids, etc. Over and over and over and over and over again.
There are a lot of errors in the editing -- maybe the conversion to the Kindle through some sort of OCR. Some words just pop up and mean nothing.
This is my first (and probably only) Danielle Steel novel.

Mirror Image is a great book, a little far out for a World War I book in it's 100 year later attitude, but a lot of it could have conceivably happened.
Samowar
Once another great book. Danielle Steele keeps you in the book until the end. So happy she continues to share her gift of writing with us!

It shows how two children raised the same and looking exactly a like can be so different.
What a story.What an incredible love story for both sisters. I loved every minute of this book. It made me conscious of short comings in my own marriage which I intend on repairing.
Danielle after reading many of your other books, I've got to say this won takes the prize.
