Publisher's Summary

In her 37th best-selling novel, Danielle Steel tells the compelling story of a woman who must struggle to overcome a shattering betrayal and the cruelest kind of malice.

At 17, the night of her mother's funeral, Grace Adams is attacked. It is not the first time, and a brutal crime ensues.

To everyone's horror, Grace will not tell the truth. She is a young woman with secrets too horrible to tell, with hurts so deep they may never heal. She is also beautiful enough for men to want her no matter how much she does not want them. Whatever the outcome, Grace Adams will have to live with whatever happened during those terrible years. After a lifetime of being a victim, now she must pay the price for other people's sins.

From the depths of an Illinois women's prison to a Chicago modeling agency to a challenging career in New York, Grace must carry the past with her wherever she goes. In healing her own pain, she reaches out to battered women and children who live a nightmare she knows all too well.

When Grace meets Charles Mackenzie, a New York lawyer, she has found a man who wants nothing from her - except to heal her, to hear her secrets, and to give her the family she so desperately wants. But with happiness finally within her grasp and precious loved ones to protect, Grace is at her most vulnerable - in danger of losing everything to a vicious tabloid press and an enemy from her past, an enemy bent on malice at all costs.

With rare insight and power, Danielle Steel writes this extraordinary woman's story, portraying her struggle to triumph over malice and betrayal, and to transform a lifetime of pain into a blessing for others. Revealing both the stark reality of domestic abuse and the healing power of love, Malice is more than superb fiction. It is a piece of life.

One of my favorite authors! love Danielle Steele

Always been a fan of Ms. Steele. From teen yrs to 40 yrs old. I can also relate to some of the experiences the main character went through minus the prison bit. Danielle really puts forth a lot of effort to bring forth each character... you almost feel like you're in the story right along with Grace in this one

good for a 90s romance novel

It was kind of an unbelievable sob story and the heroine was like a meek little mouse which was kind of hard because she kept getting abused over and over and over again.

wonderful story

Read this story back in college, as gut wrenching as it is to take it in, it touches on a very real subject so many either don't want to face or are unaware of.

I read this book about 11 years ago for the first time and then reread it a few more times. And now this is my second time listening to this book. I even listened this last time with my Husband. He really enjoyed this book!
