  • Compelling read!

    In this dark novel by Danielle Steele, an innocent party leads to life long consequences for a group of seniors at an exclusive Eastern Prep School. The story, reminiscent of events in today’s headlines, may seem familiar. However, through memorable characters and vivid descriptions, Steele’s aptly named Moral Compass illustrates how choices made, whether right or wrong, change lives. St. Ambrose School has just admitted its first female students. The administration and faculty have braced for problems but all seems to be going well until Halloween. After a school sanctioned party, an unlikely group of six boys, from wealthy to scholarship students, meet in a remote area of the campus. Two have brought alcohol to the impromptu gathering. They are joined by a female Senior. In the next moments, hours, days, weeks and months, many decisions are made by the students and their parents. We see that the strength of inner character has nothing do do with age, wealth or power. Moral Compass is an engrossing read. Far different from Danielle Steele’s previous books, this novel tackles current issues and presents behaviors from many points of view. A powerful must read. 5 stars. Thank you to NetGalley, Danielle Steele and Random House for this ARC.

  • Relevant!

    Moral Compass by Danielle Steel is compelling women’s fiction from one of America’s bestselling authors. Saint Ambrose Prepatory School is among the best and most distinguished boarding schools in the country. The students are from some of the finest families and the staff and administration are top-notch. After more than a hundred and twenty years the school is welcoming it’s first female students. Some think it’s about time and will only move the school forward. Others think it’s a mistake and will be the end of the school’s impeccable history. Maybe both are right. Following the school’s successful Halloween festivities a group of students have a private celebration. By morning Vivienne Walker has alcohol poisoning and has been attacked and left for dead. Some of the students are conflicted. Should they tell what they know? Others are guilty but determined to continue their lives as planned. The rich have the best of everything, including the lawyers they now need, while the less affluent must make due with much less. Unfortunately, money can’t buy a proper moral compass. Moral Compass is a literary marvel. Danielle Steel has scored on all aspects. The cast of characters is varied, but each is fully-developed and completely believable. The subject matter is totally relevant to today’s social climate. The plot held my attention from start to finish. I was completely captivated and read it in one sitting. This is definitely a 5 out of 5 star read and I recommend it to everyone who enjoys compelling fiction. My thanks to Random House Publishing Group – Ballantine and NetGalley for the opportunity to read an advance copy of this book. However, the opinions expressed in this review are 100% mine and mine alone.

  • Moral Compass

    There were so many characters introduced in this book. Hard to keep up sometimes as to who they were. Surprised to see many disappear in the storyline. Seemed like it was really rushed. Not her usual style.

  • Unable to put down

    Danielle Steel did it again with Moral Compass. This book was wonderfully written. She takes a subject that is unfortunately way too common and handles it with dignity and grace. She also didn't allow the victim to be shamed by other characters. A couple tried, but they were quickly shot down by the headmaster and others. I am a Danielle Steel fan for life and as long as she writes, I will read. Thank you to Netgalley and Random House Ballantine for the ARC. All opinions expressed are my own.

  • Moral Compas

    DS always so good. Never miss a book. You can live the stories as they are realistic and a good relaxing media. I love each book and with each new book I am in my happy place with the book in my hands. Gripping and easy to read as if you are floating on a sailboat on a calm sea.
