"Handsome, widowed, sophisticated, utterly charming, Paul Parker won the heart of a wealthy young Frenchwoman as his second wife. In two marriages, he fathered a challenging son and three very different daughters. But as irresponsible as he was irresistible, he ultimately shrugged off the demands of marriage and parenting to pursue life as an international bon vivant. Raised by their mother with all the care and dedication their father lacked, the three Parker sisters have become vibrant, self-reliant young women as social worker, bakery owner, and actress. While they love their mostly absent, glamorous father, he has left them with a legacy of impermanence and uncertainty in their own relationships with men. And with no strong role model to guide him, Paul's son has gone from one failure to another, even while his stepmother makes excuses for him, as he seethes with jealousy of his younger sisters. Now, after a long illness, Paul has slipped away peacefully in his sleep, and his family has gathered together to read his will. He has made a very personal bequest to each of his children, carefully designed to help them achieve their dreams and happiness. But Paul has saved the biggest surprise for his ex-wife Véronique: a secret from the past that shakes her world. He also leaves her a gift that remained a mystery for their entire marriage, and she begins a search to discover its history and rightful owner. The story of a man's last wish to make a difference--and of the loved ones he leaves behind fulfilling their destinies at last--Precious Gifts is a deeply moving exploration of the rich territory of loss, forgiveness, and how profoundly families are shaken when an inheritance is involved"--Back cover.

It took me a lot longer to read this book than any other of Danielle Steel's. I don't know why though. I go thru periods where I'm not into reading so I would put it down and pick it up here and there.
This book was well written but it took awhile to get to the thick of the plot. Amazing ending! Just beautiful!
