Inhaltsangabe

In this heartfelt, incisive novel, Danielle Steel celebrates the virtues of unconventional beauty while exploring deeply resonant issues of weight, self-image, sisterhood, and family.

A chubby little girl with ordinary looks, Victoria Dawson has always felt out of place in her family, especially in body-conscious L.A. While her parents and sister can eat anything and not gain an ounce, Victoria must watch everything she eats, as well as endure her father’s belittling comments about her body and see her academic achievements go unacknowledged. Ice cream and oversized helpings of all the wrong foods give her comfort, but only briefly. The one thing she knows is that she has to get away from home, and after college in Chicago, she moves to New York City. 

Landing her dream job as a high school teacher, Victoria loves working with her students and wages war on her weight at the gym. Despite tension with her parents, Victoria remains close to her younger sister, Grace. Though they couldn’t be more different in looks, they love each other unconditionally. So when Grace announces her engagement to a man who is an exact replica of their narcissistic father, Victoria worries about her sister’s future happiness, and with no man of her own, she feels like a failure once again. As the wedding draws near, a chance encounter, a deeply upsetting betrayal, and a family confrontation lead to a turning point. 

Behind Victoria is a lifetime of hurt and neglect she has tried to forget. Ahead is a challenge and a risk: to accept herself as she is, celebrate it, and claim the victories she has fought so hard for and deserves. Big girl or not, she is terrific and discovers that herself.

Interessante Thematik

Mal was anderes - Essstörungen verbundenen mit den damit einhergehnden Problemen. Trotzdem nicht all zu ernsthaft und bemüht geschrieben. Schöne Geschichte - und natürlich mit Happy End! :-)

Loved it!

Finally Danielle Steel approached a different path in her writing. This one was more authentic, away from the rich, the beautiful and the famous who would die for the love of their lives. This book was real and I dare to say many of us might be able to relate to many scenes described in this book..... about having parents who never stopped comparing us to other siblings, about how we try to go from one diet to another just to gain more weight in the end, how desperate we were to get away from our parents just to choose a college as far as possible........ I loved it as it touched me.

Was Eltern mit Ihrer Erziehung alles anrichten können !!

Diese Hörbuch beschreibt das Leben eines Kindes bis zur Erwachsenen, die immer wieder unter Essattacken leidet. Kompensation der fehlenden Liebe der Eltern. Sehr schön geschrieben, wie eigentlich fast alle Bücher von Danielle Steel

Nette Story über einen normalen Menschen

Das Buch ist nett zu hören, mit einer liebenswerten Hauptfigur, die im Gegensatz zu vielen anderen Steel Heldinnen normaler ist und nicht eine strahlende SChönheit aus reichem Hause.
