Jul 26, Crime Addict Sifat rated it really liked it. On the other hand, Sidney Sheldon's writing prowess is sometimes predictable, in a good sense that you want to prove you're right. Sister Magen is an expert can nuns hit a guy Megan - the orphan, who feels an overpowering attraction to Jaime. I love this book.
Lucky huh? View all 4 comments. Dec 02, Rolyn rated it it was ok. When I finished reading this book, my first reaction was I mean, after all the excruciating details for the bull run, the convent, what happened with Sister Teresa in the military camp and some other things that I cannot remember anymore I did mention in my other reviews that I do not have a good memory , I found the ending somewhat lacking. Okay, to be perfectly honest, I found the ending totally lacking.
After reading this book and after my "what the hell? So just to satisfy my bloodlust I just watched UFC. Reading this book was mentally tiring. This is just my opinion though. View 1 comment. Mar 18, Sumit RK rated it liked it. A good read but far from perfect: The entire backdrop of Spanish Civil war didn't have major impact. Too many characters, each with his detailed backstory which had no relevance to the main story OK except 1 Not the auhor's best work But overall a good read.

Nov 21, Rebecca rated it liked it Shelves: An okayish thriller. I know it is a story and one should not have too many questions but still The premise was good. This is the second book I have come across of a convent with the code of silence followed by its inhabitants. But the atmosphere was so different from The Beautiful Mystery which was a five starrer for me.
It is the story of four nuns who escape from their convent during a military attack on it and of the rebel leader Jaimie Miro An okayish thriller. It is the story of four nuns who escape from their convent during a military attack on it and of the rebel leader Jaimie Miro.
How all their lives become entangled is the crux of the story. But I have may unanswered questions view spoiler But all in all an entertaining read. Aug 01, Salymar rated it it was amazing Shelves: The story is set 37 years after the Civil War in Spain or the Spanish Inquisition which lasted from Remember, that Civil War was one of the bloodiest civil wars in history.
More than half people lost their homes and lives in the battles for power between the Republicans and the rebel Nationalists in Spain. Going back to the real setting of the story. Dated in Madrid -Spain, the Spanish government ruled by a authoritarian leader, Leopoldo Martinez had a conflict with the Catholic church. Leopoldo Martinez believes that the church has been hiding and aiding rebels inside their convents.
Consequently, he decided to threaten the church which resulted to violence that forced four 4 women to leave the Spanish convent and seek a fight to death against the government. Aug 14, Devanshi Gupta rated it really liked it Shelves: I couldn't put it down at all.
I never wanted to stop reading it, it was a really addicting and enticing read. But then we are talking about Sidney Sheldon aren't we? Though I think at a point in the middle I thought the flashbacks were getting a little too much, but then I found myself grateful for all that knowledge.
The character development was precise and each character had an intricately drawn past which was explained in detail. And that does sound awesome. Either I am going to reallyyy regret my decision to read Mr.
Sheldon or it might be the start of a beautiful love story! They walk through the mountains to different countries, and finally to the basque countries. And Teresa. All of them has a terrible terrible ending. Except for sister Megan and Graciela. Even though the plot of the story is really messed up, and really complicated, the theme was obvious in the end. Help others and you will get your help back.
Helping someone and tricking them into something, can be the best way to assa 4 nuns escape their covent with a group of terrorist. Helping someone and tricking them into something, can be the best way to assassinate someone. This was the thing that the lieutenant was misunderstanding.
Jaime and his terrorist was always one step ahead of them. The book reminds me of all the times when time runs slow.
Such as, in the book where the nuns had to keep their heads down without the word for 50 years Have you been into something that made you seem like time was running by really fast? It makes it seem like a hour glass. Reverse the hour glass over and over again to make it go on forever. Just like the sands of time. There was another theme in this book.
The nuns had faith that they can cross the 4 walls where they were trapped Either you have faith in god. Or you have faith in what happens next. Even though there was a win-win situation at the end. A lot of nuns sacrificed themselves It was never a win-win situation Nov 09, Fuad Al Fidah rated it it was amazing.

They were instructed by the Reverend Mother to take the convent's most precious possession with them and bring it to the next convent where it can be safely kept and where they can seek refuge as well. However, they fall into the hands of the rebel group led by Jaime Miro. Jaime Miro was ultimately the handsomest rebel this story has ever created. He was so manly, undeniably char This is a story of four nuns who were able to escape the hostile military forces of Acoca who got into their convent.
He was so manly, undeniably charming and witty. The leader of the outlawed Basque guerrilla. On the other hand, each nun had their personal struggles prior to committing themselves in a life of prayer inside the four-walled abode.
But,as they faced the real world which they long ago abandoned, each of them has to deal with the secrets of their past while in the hands of the men they eventually fall in love with. With this book, Sheldon once again captivates the readers imagination to make each character vivid and alive. Apr 19, JoPaul rated it really liked it.
Sidney Sheldon spins a yarn that is both entertaining and addictive. It was a spellbinding moment reading the thick and rich plot. At first, I thought Sands of Times is gory and bloody, chaotic, historical and violent. However, it was the opposite. It was a page full of reminisces of each of the major characters.
On the other hand, Sidney Sheldon's writing prowess is sometimes predictable, in a good sense that you want to prove you're right.
And when you are, you felt great because you feel Sidney Sheldon spins a yarn that is both entertaining and addictive. And when you are, you felt great because you feel that you are thinking like a poet, a writer, a master. To get you out of boredom or if you want to kill time or to be invigorated from an exhausting activity. Try read a few pages and you'll pay no attention to your watch. Too late for you to notice, you skipped two dinners already, but deep inside you're not empty, instead overflowing with delight for what this story has kept.
I finished this book in one sitting. Aug 27, Neha Azhar rated it it was amazing.
There will never be another Sidney Sheldon. Note that. There is something inexplicable about his writing, which grips the reader from the beginning till the end, keeps the reader intrigued, letting them feel every single emotion.
And how "The difference between a patriot and a rebel depends on who is in power at the moment" I have no words how much I adore Sidney Sheldon and his books, and his brain, and his ideas, and his entire being. And how many emotions I've felt reading his books. From sheer happiness to dreading sadness, from huge disappointments to blissful satisfactions, from ugly crying to cheshire cat grins, Sheldon takes you to an emotional rollercoaster ride with his words, words which leave a huge impact and make home within you.
The Sands Of Time. Self appreciation time, that I decided to buy this book from the thrift store. Old and worn out as it was, I was having second thoughts about buying it. Now I want to kiss myself for listening to my inner bookworm. Here's how I felt about some of the characters: The hero of the Basque people, the legendary freedom fighter who was ready to die for what he believed in, was my favorite.
I hated him in the beginning, but as time wore on, admiration turned into love. He is a brave man who loves his people and fought for them. A man with an intimidating personality and a somewhat kind heart, who had lost his family during the war and is now seeking vengeance.
Sister Megan: Megan or Patricia, whatever you would like to call her, is a nun and an orphan, who doesn't know she is the daughter of the deceased industrialist and owner of Scott Industries.
As a child she lived in an orphanage then decided to serve God, and becomes a nun. Sister Lucia: A Sicilian woman who is the daughter of an Italian Mafioso, who's childhood was a dream for any kid, suddenly finds her world turned upside down when her father and brother are prisoned for the rest of their lives. The way she avenged them by murdering two of the treacherous people her father trusted, I admired her courage and bravery, and the way she tricked everyone around her.
Loved the way her story ended. Sister Graciela: Whatever other's have opinion of her character, I adored Graciela until she did that stupid thing. How, why on earth would she leave someone she loved and who loved her equally and she was so close to her happy ending? She disappointed me. Sister Teresa: Man, that woman deserved better. Having suffered so much in the past because she was the most ugly person in her family, and then being betrayed by her own sister for the only man she truly loved, Sister Teresa decided to join a convent to run away from the world and finds peace there.
For thirty years, she served God, and then suddenly she finds herself back in the selfish, hostile world she long ago abandoned. I felt sorry for the way her part in the book ended. The ending was perfect. Everything was perfect about this book.
Jan 08, Nadira rated it it was amazing. This best-seller is an action thriller and follows the adventures of four nuns who are forced to elope and leave their Spanish convent during a military attack on the convent. They are forced to fend for themselves in the outside world of threat, violence and passions and end up getting trapped in the hands of a basque rebel and his gang.
The rest of the story is all about how this journey goes on, taking unpredictable turns.
I love, love, LOVE this book! I read it back in college but have re-read this book multiple times! The plot and subplots are all so thrilling! The characterization of the nuns, their background stories, the flashbacks were fun and riveting, touching and sad too.
The climax was simply superb! Sidney Sheldon is one of my favorite authors! He is a master of dialogues and plot twisting. I have read every single of his books, including his autobiographies. Loved all his books!! He became most famous after he turned 50 and began writing best-selling romantic suspense novels. He is the seventh bestselling fiction writer of all time. I highly recommend this page-turner and all his other books too!
Each and every one of them were amazing! See all Editorial Reviews. Product details File Size: Would you like to tell us about a lower price? Book Series. Is this feature helpful? Thank you for your feedback. Share your thoughts with other customers.

I have read many of Sidney Sheldon's book and I feel he is a very good writer. He always has some sort of suspense and drama in every story. It was very well articulated and covered Spanish internal remnants from what Franco did to the Spanish people, some loved him, some hated him. See all 80 reviews.
