Morning, Noon & Night by Sidney Sheldon - a review

Morning, Noon & Night by Sidney Sheldon cover
Morning, Noon & Night by Sidney Sheldon

Author:- Sidney Sheldon

Number of Pages:- 375 

Publisher:- Harper Collins Publishers

Genre:- Fiction/Suspense

My Verdict:-

I ordered this book recently and in no way I was disappointed by the work of the author. Yes, this is another best works of Sidney Sheldon. The way the events and the planning is done before writing this book (I assume) is something that I applaud for. The book itself speaks louder than this review and I am sure that while reading this book, you will be surely drawn towards another world where you would be seeing the characters of the book in front of you.
The book is divided in three parts and each part has its own significance. I liked the verse quoted by the author at the very beginning of the book which I would like to re-quote here again:

Allow the morning sun to warm
Your heart when you are young
And let the soft winds of noon
Cool your passion,
But beware the night
For death lurks there,
Waiting, waiting, waiting.

                                             -Arthur Rimbaud

As I flipped on to this verse by Arthur Rimbaud, instantly I was excited to read the book as the last two lines attracted my attention very much. The most exciting thing about it is being of 375 pages, it was still a quick read because of simple language used. Sidney Sheldon knows how to put life in his characters perfectly.

The book is about Stanford family who is one of the most respected families in America. But who knows that behind this respect and fame lies a hidden web of blackmail, drugs and murder? The story begins when Harry Stanford, one of the wealthiest men drowns and dies under mysterious circumstances while cruising on his private yacht at the coast of Corsica. After the death, during the family gathering at the funeral of Harry Stanford, a mysterious woman appears claiming to be Harry's daughter. The family suspects her to be a fraud as millions are at stake. Will they catch her or what if she is real? To know more about it, you have to read the story.

The plot is perfect, the characters well defined and the end is a Sidney Sheldon surprise. You are definitely going to love this one.

My Rating:-

I would give this book 4.5/5 as a quick read and the ability to visualize the characters very vividly in a very simple language.

She had to stay in a hotel for first few days till all the formalities for her admission at the university were completed and the hostel allocated to her.

I wish this night stayed....

Cold breeze grazing my feet Maybe it's an act so folly But my heart skipped a beat Surrounded by sheer melancholy Your whispers echoing in my ears Its difficult to see with Eyes welling up with tears Heart aching in writhe Winds changed the direction again Waiting for this since quite long No more I can abstain Come let's dance to the song Beneath the open sky Beside you I laid Now don't say bye I wish this night stayed...
