    One thought on “Les trésors de la vie (ROMANS)”

    1. Sweeping from a small midwestern town in Ohio to Manhattan's Wall Street; all the way from elegant Fifth Avenue to a starkly cramped prison cellTreasures is the story of a simple family - united by blood but torn apart by vastly different dreams. The Osborne family had always been incredibly close, yet with the deaths of Vernon and Peg Osborne; their grief-stricken children - Lara, Connie and Eddy - soon decide to go their separate ways. However, while their dreams of success, and the separation [...]

    2. This book read more like a Danielle Steel book than a Belva Plain. It really lacked the usual meat that Plain books usually hold. Spoiled rich people. Not really my cup of tea.

    3. Treasures is a story of 3 siblings who grew up having a hard life and the rise and fall in their financial and personal lifes . Its the story of their learning to be content , understanding and accepting of each other and others, trust in finding love without selling yourself short and not thinking that possessions meant happiness. It takes twist and turns that are somewhat unpredicted

    4. I'm concerned about myself! I should have hated this book. I DID hate almost all of the characters. And still, I couldn't put the book down! Hats off to Belva Plain, once again, for making me despise her well developed characters, and even hate the plot, but especially hate the snobbish, pompous dialogue between these snobbish, pompous people! This is a story about American Greed and about how America was almost destroyed because of the immense greed of a few (circa 1980's and 1990's Wall Street [...]

    5. Siblings Eddy, Lara, and Caroline approach the accumulation of goods in different ways: Eddy, by wheeling and dealing; Lara and her husband Davey, by working hard to produce; Caroline, by marrying wealth. I did not enjoy reading about all the greed and shallowness -- knowing where it would lead. The end was predictable and even unrealistic, but satisfying. It turned out to be the parable of "real treasure" I thought it might be.

    6. I really like this author. This was a story about greed and misguided ideas of treasure. The characters are believable but not necessarily likable. It demonstrates some of the tough lessons learned by some who got caught up in their ambition for money and prestige. Reminds me in particular of the 80's but there are people like this in all decades.

    7. Good "trashy" summer vacation read about the greed and financial ups and downs of the 80's and 90's. 😎

    8. Lara, Connie and Eddy have just buried their mother in the small Ohio town where they lived. As they sat around talking the evening of the funeral, Connie announced that she was planning to move to Texas, knowing no one but wanting to expand her horizons. Eddy took the same opportunity to announce that he was leaving for New York City to join an accounting partnership. Only Lara remains in Ohio. Eddy finds instant success in the finance world of Wall Street and quickly transforms his meager savi [...]

    9. A pretty good book. The details on what the Eddie character did that was illegal were kept pretty vague. Too many details, and it would have dragged down the plot, but a few more details would have been better. It felt like it was "dumbed down" too much. The ending was a bit vague as well, as the story skipped ahead a number of months.8, I think. Eddie's wife is pregnant when the months are skipped, but before that she had cheated on him and they stayed married, but had separate rooms. Connie en [...]

    10. Another from the very old collection of books that I bought from a book club when I was in my first apartment. Published in 1992, this story started out as a wild reminder of the driving ambition of the 80s. Even I had caught the bug as a teen. But reading if from a different place and not knowing what to expect from the story, I wasn't sure I'd like the story. I certainly couldn't relate to the driving ambition anymore. That's not what is important to me. SO without spoiling it, I will just say [...]

    11. A family drama set in the '70s & '80s about the Osborne siblings- Lara, Eddy, and Connie. The story follows their lives in relationships, work, and society from their humble beginnings in Ohio to their rise in millions of dollars in NYC. Nothing to learn here, but an okay way to pass the time. A read similar to Maeve Binchy, Kristin Hannah, and Danielle Steel.

    12. It has been a long time since I read a Belva Plain book. Like revisiting an old dear friend. Very comfortable. It was a long book but held my interest. The book followed the lives of two sisters and a brother. The were very different personalities. It was nice to see them mature in different ways.

    13. There were a few interesting twists and turns in the lives of the 3 siblings portrayed in this book, but overall I just didn't care for the author's writing style, which is one reason why it took me so long to finish.

    14. A reread, I read it a few years ago but honestly didn't remember much of it. An easy read whose story kept me turning the pages. The bottom line of the plot was that money doesn't buy happiness, and some people who learn this learn it in time to save their souls.

    15. The story has a moral and is a little sappy. This is good for the soul though. A comparison has been made to Danielle Steel. The reader is lulled through the book, so it's a comfort to read.

    16. I always love this author's tales of families who have their troubles but come through them together. This was a charming story, and I enjoyed it thoroughly.

    17. I liked this book a lot. The book is about a family with their ups and downs, from poor to rich to even richer, and learns what the most important thing in life is life it's self.

    18. RDC-M V 5, 1992, 1/93. A novel about two sisters and a brother who look for riches and success in the wrong places. Rather dull.
