The Stars Shine Down by Sidney Sheldon: Book Review

I got tired of mouse clicks and clicking through pages on my laptop. Instead, I desperately wanted to feel the solid pages in my hands. That’s when I thought I’d take a break and enjoy reading a novel, flipping through its true pages by my favorite author, Sidney Sheldon.

I went to the nearest bookstore and felt compelled to buy three of his novels and expected to enjoy weeks of reading them, which is exactly what I did. One of these books was, “The Stars Shine Down”. I want to provide a review of this well structured, well plotted and well crafted novel. Read on for the review.

The novel describes a 17-year-old girl, Lara, who has a hate relationship with her dad because no matter how much she wants to impress and love him, he always makes stinging comments about her. After the death of her father, she dreams of building a building in a place close to where she currently lives in a boarding house. She eventually fulfilled her dream and that’s how she got into the real estate business.

She also grew old and became a beautiful lady and everyone was mesmerized at first sight. Yet she was America’s princess who traveled from London to New York, from Rhino to Rome, building buildings, hotels and shopping malls. She was successful and became a self-made billionaire. Of course, she had help all along. She also met her soul mate while she was traveling, who happened to be a pianist. They fell in love and they married. However, they were from different backgrounds, one erecting skyscrapers and the other engrossed in music.

When all her valuable assets seemed to be falling apart and she almost broke up with her husband, a surprise birthday party from her husband, friends and colleagues made it all a happy ending for her.

This is a fabulous book to find. I would recommend it to anyone interested in reading novels.
