Výňatek z recenzí na Amazonu :
"As usual, Barbara Taylor Bradford provides us with a gripping - if not particularly realistic plot. Changing her name to M, a young girl moves to New York to start a new life after a devastating experience in the UK. Typical of Barbara Taylor Bradford's heroines, she falls on her feet and soon begins to make it as a model; being selected as the new face of a Parisian fashion house. At the same time, she attends a party with two friends and instantly falls head over heels in love with a famous actor whom she remembers having a crush on when she was a child. (See what I mean about the plot?) There is some sort of secret about her background, which she eventually shares with actor, Larry for special reasons - but not with us until we get half way through the book! Who is this mysterious family; who are the sisters that she refers to - the one that she calls `Birdie' and her eldest sister who taught her so much about fashion and style? And who is the brother whom Larry already knew?
However, on moving to Paris to launch the new season's clothes, things start to go a little wrong, and it appears that someone has it in for M! Who could it be, and why? Is it something to do with her mysterious family? Who exactly is she? As she moves to London, the pieces soon fall into place, with some surprising revelations!
The style of writing is typically B.T.B. - a little flowery and complex in nature, making some of the sentences and a lot of the speech appear rather long-winded; however, it is a fairly enjoyable read and a good addition to the collection!" By E. Heckingbottom
