A Note from Danielle for November ‘11
My new hardcover Hotel Vendôme goes on sale this month, and I’m very excited about it. It’s a book both men and women can enjoy, about the life and times of a New York hotel, and the man who owns and runs it. He’s the single father of an enchanting little girl, who grows up at the hotel, with all its excitement, mystery, and magic. Hotels and the people who visit them are fascinating, and the behind-the-scenes intrigues even more so! I love this book, and hope you will too and have fun with it.
November also brings us the Thanksgiving holiday, cherished by so many. Traditionally, it’s a time for families to get together and enjoy good meals and good times. Those of us who do not have the opportunity to be with our families may gather around the Thanksgiving table with friends who are dear to us. Sometimes even that can’t happen—I’ve had some years like that too, many of us have—and on those occasions, it is meaningful to do what we can for others, and to be grateful for the blessings we do have. It is a time to take stock and be thankful, to reach out to those who are less fortunate or lonely or solitary. It is a time for gratitude and giving. Whatever you do, and however you spend the holiday, I hope that it is peaceful, satisfying, and a warm moment for you.
