Summary

Bill is a dedicated young lawyer working at his family’s prestigious New York firm, who leaves everything he trained for to follow his dream and become a minister in rural Wyoming. Jenny, his wife, is a stylist whose heart and soul are invested in fashion. She leaves the milieu and life she loves to join him. The certainty they share is that their destinies are linked forever.

Fast forward 38 years. Robert is a hardworking independent book publisher in Manhattan, who has given up all personal life to build his struggling business. He is looking for one big hit novel to publish. Lillibet is a young Amish woman, living as though in the 17th century, caring for her widowed father and three young brothers on their family farm. In secret at night, by candlelight, she has written the novel that burns within her, and gets it into Robert’s hands, wrapped in her hand-stitched apron. He falls in love first with the book, and then with the woman he has never met, living in the sequestered world of the Amish - a world without telephones, computers, electricity, modern conveniences, or cars. Although Lillibet faces banishment from her family and community, she embraces the opportunity to publish her novel, and is irresistibly drawn to the man who has heard her voice. Destiny is at work here. Fate draws her from her horse-and-buggy life toward his, and the publication of her novel.

In the hands of master storyteller Danielle Steel, these two remarkable relationships come together in unexpected and surprising ways, as lovers are lost, and find each other again. If it is true that real love lasts forever and lovers cannot lose each other, then Until the End of Time will not only comfort and fascinate us, as destiny does her dance, but it will give us hope as well. Love and fate are powerful, irresistible forces, as Steel proves to us here, in a book about courage, change, risk, and hope...and love that never dies.

Love Eternal

Two stories linked by love, can't say much more than that or it'll ruin the reveal. It gets one more star for the first husband being my ideal man, yay!

Until the end of time

I listened to this in the car on a long journey, I found the story line quite gripping but was disappointed when the book almost started again with another story about different characters with a twist at the end. I would have liked the first part of the book to not have such an abrupt end! Good listening though, this was the first audio book I have listened to .....

Author needs to do her homework

Anyone that is of the Christian faith doesn't BELIEVE that you are reincarnated or a star when you die!!! You go to heaven or hell. If you are going to have a Episcopal minister and a Quaker woman in the story, do your research in the bible next time.

Brilliant characters acting heroically - no losers

These are stories that make us believe in the power of eternal love - and the characters in this book show their attraction to each other in a playful, fun loving way, with lightness of heart and spirit.
My only issue was that this was two separate stories - and I wanted each to be longer, fuller and to have a more drawn-out ending. Perhaps just that I didn't want to leave behind my lovers when the story ended.

No such thing as reincarnation, it's a lie!

I didn't like that this book was Promoting reincarnation because if you are a Christian you can't Promote Reincarnation. Because The Bible says once comes death then comes judgment. Hebrews 9:27

Until the end of time

Loved the story until both main characters died. The story could have been taken in a different direction. Didn't like starting a new story in he middle. Didn't think they tied in enough at end end. Just sad.

And That's Another Story!

Danielle Steel once again weaves a story that pulls you into each character and illustrates by word how very much the twists and turns of life direct us from joy to sadness while once again lifting the human spirit .

this was well narrated

What made the experience of listening to Until the End of Time the most enjoyable?

I did enjoy both parts of the book, where the first part was the one that took all my interest where the second part did as well,

What about Nick Podehl’s performance did you like?

I really enjoyed Nick's performance very much and it was so understandablel.

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

at the end of part one of the book had me cry and enjoy that they were together till the end of time was very romantic. As the part two it had me sad for the girl and her father but the story line was very good.

Any additional comments?

The book which had two different stories really got my attention and enjoyed both stories very much.

Reincarnation

Reincarnation was hard enough to accept. But I found it offensive that she used Christian people (a minister and an Amish girl) to depict the belief. I've loved reading her books for the past 25 years. This is the first one I haven't liked.
