After Gillian Flynn’s Gone Girl I needed something more subtle, more fiction, more nice. So I borrowed (begged to take it and have it back in 2 days) Danielle Steel’s Special Delivery. I had seen the book for a while, but for forever now I haven’t read romance so I was off it.
However, I enjoyed the book, thoroughly, more than I thought I would. Danielle Steel writes some of the best books I have ever read. Back when I started reading, way before Harry Potter and Game of Thrones, Danielle Steel and Barbra Taylor Bradford were the only things I read. These women molded me so much that I still consider Emma Harte and her granddaughter Paula as some of the best characters ever forged.
You know how there’s only one person for you, to love and to hold, to cherish and till death do you part? Would it be so bad if it wasn’t true and if it was what happens when your person dies? After decades of being married to your rock, how do you live on when they are six feet under?
Do you concentrate on your business that brings you the freshest bevy of hot models from Hollywood? Or do you sulk, wear black all year, forget to eat and be happy? How do you live when it should have been you?
You live, that is what you do. You eat, you dress, you get talked into attending parties and you fall in love with your enemy. Life does go on. You can have two happy endings, even at 60. You love again, and you even have a kid if you want. Walks in Paris, skiing in Vermont, getting the morning paper naked because well… There’s no reason not to do that but am not judging.
Special Delivery is all that. It’s an afterlife book. One that tells you it’s not too late to find love, nor too early. But more importantly, it’s not wrong to find love again once you lose it the first time. You owe it to yourself to live. Guilt shouldn’t take over your life like death took your love. Do not be afraid of love.
