    This was my first Danielle Steel book and I loved it. I have the old version with 306 pages so I didn't have as much reading to do as the newer version."Palomino" was a good read. I enjoyed the book because it had so many twists and turns, but poor Samantha having all these issues to deal with from a lousy husband leaving her, to a handsome Ranch Hand falling in love with her and leaving her, then to a loving child she tried to adopt not going thru, gee whiz after all that you think it was over HECK NO! She then becomes paralyzed from the waist down.I enjoyed going through the journey with Samantha as she endured all these terrible trials. She was a strong woman, who was young, vivacious and who had good friends and an undestranding boss who was on her side. She was great at what she did as a commercial wrtier, producer and despite her disability proved she could keep on going. It wasn't easy but she maintained her dignity and continued to live!I hated her husband for leaving her, but I really fell for Tate Jordan the ranch hand who fell in love with Samantha. He gave her the name Palomino because of her hair. Their love story was genuine and as they fell in love it was sad to see it end over thoughtless pride and old rules that need to have been broken.Alot of characters in the book and different scenarios but overall a good read. I do look forward to reading more of Ms. Steels books, but for now I'm content with this read. Thank you!

    Danielle Steel's novel, "Palomino," was pretty good. However, unfortunately, it DID NOT meet the high expectations that I had hoped that it would. :-(. I found out that I preferred watching the made-for-TV movie MUCH MORE. Some details contained within Danielle Steel's plot were the represented similarly in the movie, but others were vastly different. I am glad that I can now say that I have read "Palomino," but it DID NOT have me as hungry, enthralled, or engrossed as I had wanted to be. It was not NEARLY AS impressive as "Wanderlust" was for me.

    ¡Uy! No apto para llorones como yo. No había llorado tanto con un libro en mi vida entera (Bueno sí, pero lloré mucho). Tengo que agradecer a la persona que me lo regaló. No sé ni qué decir, no quiero decir nada porque me gustaría recomendar este libro a muchos amigos míos que les gusta este género y no quiero ser un spoiler. Simplemente tengo que decir que me gustó demasiado y no dudaría en leer otro libro de Danielle Steel.

    Like so many others this was one of my first romance novels and first Danielle Steel book, it was sooo many years ago, but for some reason I can remember the storyline and I remember enjoying it. I've read other Danielle Steel books, but this in the only one that stood out for me!

    This is one of the first books I read by Danielle Steele. She has turned out to be one of my favorite authors to read as a quick "summer read". What can I say -- I'm a sucker for romance novels!

    If you haven't seen the 1990s TV movie version or haven't read the print version, if you're a horse lover, you'll love Danielle Steel's Palomino. When Samantha Taylor's husband left her for another woman, it devastated her and left her bereft and heart-broken. She placed her advertising career on hold and sought refuge in a friend's California horse ranch, and lost herself in the daily rigorous hard labor of ranch life. Later, she discovered daily joys, hard work and trusted friends to help her heal. And that's when she met the horse ranch foreman, Tate Jordan. And from there, a heated relationship ensued between Samantha and Tate. When Tate disappeared and Samantha fell from her horse, it changed her life forever... now confined to a wheelchair, she would have to find the courage to begin again. From there, she would deal with the daily battles on the handicapped, she would find new joys and loves, and the adopted child she always wanted. A beautiful and heart-warming romance.

    I am just not a fan of romance novels, but I am a HUGE fan of books with a kind of western theme (ranch life, cowboys, cattle drives, horses, etc.) and traditional westerns. This is why, when my mom recommended this book, I had a very open mind about it. I enjoyed the first part, but about halfway through it got annoying and, by the end, I had completely lost interest. I didn't find it believable in the least, and for this genre that is important to me. The characters were a bit generic, especially the high-powered executive who insisted she everything when, in reality, she knew painfully little about how real ranch life works.

    A novel that I read 8 years ago. The first novel that I read twice. The weird thing is that the feelings when I read this story hasn't changed. It brings warmth. If Danielle Steel only has 1 single book that she has ever written in her life, then Palomino is enough. Those out there who are nature lovers, who never mind getting their hands dirty, who enjoys sweating under the sun working for what you believe is right, who wants to love and be loved despite all the defects... This is one story that you should not neglect.

    Three years of heartaches, love, pain, faith, and friendship were tested in this story. Each and every sorrow and happiness was detailed in this very special book. This was -and still is- the kind of book that will make one's faith and ability to love come alive with the challenges, the pains, and a large dose of REALITY.Palomino - a beautiful book about eternal love and life.GOD BLESS, READERS!

    Este libro es engañoso, me ocurrió como cuando leí "el beso". Pensaba que sería light y tranquilo, pero ¡oh, sorpresa! Danielle te voltea todo y hace un giro que no te esperas. Y tocamos otra discapacidad: la motora.Samantha queda destrozada cuando su esposo la deja abandonada por otra mujer (estoy viendo que esto se repite un poco en varias de sus novelas, aunque su trama la varíe), por lo que le sugieren irse a un rancho con el fin de olvidar todo lo sucedido. Ahí se recupera, y mientras pasa el tiempo ella va abriendo su corazón y se siente lista para iniciar una nueva relación. sin embargo, cuando tras una discusión desaparece Tate, ella sufre un accidente que la hace estar en una silla de ruedas.Sigo asombrándome de cómo es que Danielle steel escribe sus historias. Sí tienen romance, pero sin duda alguna también están cargadas de drama, leyendo sus libros he descubierto que me gustan más las novelas que se enfocan en romances más realistas y no rosas o idealizados.

    Oldie but a goodie!! This is one of my favorite Danielle Steel books. As I peruse my collection of her books, I'm finding myself re-reading many of the old ones, (35+ years) and I seem to enjoy the older ones because the contents in them are far less repetitive than the newer ones. I believe I've read every one of her books and, with the exception of a couple, enjoyed them immensely. I think now that too many books are being released one after another, and it has taken away from the excellence of the earlier books. If you're a Danielle Steel fan, this has always been one of my favorites, and I'm sure you'll feel the same way.

    I first read this book in 1982 .While packing I discovered this was a book I saved and haven't read many D.Steele books, so knew I should reread. Loved it just as much as the first time and now can pass it on.

    Looooved this book. The heroine is injured and has to find her way back to living a full life again. The read date is approximate since I don't remember exactly when I read it but definitely remember this one.

    I very much enjoyed reading Palomino. I loved the characters and I loved the depth to the story. Some of Ms. Steel's newer stories don't have the depth, but this one did. It was a touching story of growth and heartache. If you are a fan of Ms. Steel, you'll love this book!

    This book is certainly an underrated piece of literature. I picked up this book from the book fair just by reading the blurb at the back of it. I hadn't even heard much of the author before but it felt like the book was asking me to read it and I couldn't deny. It was my first Danielle Steel book and I became her fan after reading it. Despite being a romance fiction it was packed with twists and turns which I didn't see coming.Samantha Taylor is devastated when her husband cheats on her for another woman who can give him something that Sam could never give, a child. Samantha is engulfed by the pain and the sense of being imperfect and less than another woman for whom her husband has left her. Her face is ashen, she does all her work but without her heart put in anything. Her friends and co-workers understand her pain and agony but they can't do anything to make her feel better. The agency gives her a four month vacation to rejuvenate herself and get over things. A hard working professional ends up on a ranch but it's for the good. She meets a man who can tame any horse on the ranch and enters a world or pure, eternal love.Read the whole review: http://imperfectperfictionist.blogspo...

    I read many, many Danielle Steele novels from middle to high school. This was one of my favorites. Steele's writings are always about the here-and-now. Issues that can and do affect people. This particular book, as most of hers, is a story about love and overcoming obstacles. The main characters are a photographer, Samantha Taylor and a ranch had named Tate Jordan. Samantha's marriage dissolved so she went to see a friend in California that owned a ranch. Samantha and Tate fall in love. When Tate discovers that Samantha's ex husband is famous for his work, he becomes embarrassed by his own profession and leaves the ranch. As Samantha attempts to put her life together again, she has a accident horse riding that leaves here partially paralyzed. In the end, as she begins to heal, Tate returns to the ranch [which was left to Samantha by the benefactor when she dies], and they live happily ever after. A nice read.

    I first read this book when I was either 12 or 13 years old. Loved the story then and still some 20 plus years latter the book still holds up. I'm not a rabid Danielle Steel fan and after reading a few of her other books in my early teens, I could not help but notice even back then that once you've read a few Danielle Steel books you pretty much read them all. Still even thou Palomino is a bit on the predictable and formulaic side, the story still work's. Just like Samantha I too fell a little bit in love with Tate Jordan, what women wouldn't? My favorite part of the whole book is at the end where he comes back and tells her he loves her that has always loved her and that has learned that it dose not matter if your a man or women, if you live right and love well and you do good, that's all that matters. Those are words we all can take to heart.

    This is a typical Danielle Steel about love found, lost, and found again. Samantha Taylor is a high powered executive, who heads to a friend's horse ranch to overcome a divorce. She falls in love with the foreman Tate Johnson. However, Tate feels he can not compete with New York society and could never make her happy. When Sam has a horse riding accident, she returns to New York and fight to become independent with her paralysis. After inheriting money, Sam decides to buy her friend's ranch and start a physically challenged children's program. When circumstances bring Tate back to the ranch and Sam, love reappears.
