Author Info
Danielle Steel
Educated in both France and New York, Danielle Steel began publishing in 1981 after a successful career in public relations and advertising. Her ensuing string of bestsellers earned her a mention in the "Guiness Book of World Records" for the 390 consecutive weeks during which at least one of her books could be found on the New York Times Bestseller List. Steel writes mostly contemporary romances with recurring themes of family, trust, and the search for true love. Steel has been married numerous times and has had a total of nine children. After her son Nick died of a drug overdose, Steel wrote "His Bright Light" (1998), a non-fiction account of his promising life and tragic death. In addition to having served as the National Chairperson for the American Library Association, she has acted as spokesperson for both the National Committee for the Prevention of Child Abuse and the American Humane Association. Steel spends part of each year at her Napa Valley ranch across the road from Francis Ford Coppola's estate. Her numerous pets have included a Vietnamese potbellied pig called Coco, named after Steel's favorite fashion designer, Coco Chanel.
From the Publisher
Editors Note Returning home from her engagement trip with her fiance and her family, Edwina Winfield finds her life forever altered when the ship on which they are sailing--the Titanic--hits an iceberg, and soon she is playing mother to her five orphaned siblings
Editors Note 1 It was the maiden voyage of  theTitanic, the greatest ship ever built, and in one  fatal, unforgettable night, the sea shattered the  lives and future of an extraordinary family, the  Winfields. Edwina Winfield, returning  from her engagement trip to England with her fiance  and her family, instantly loses her parents, the  man she loved and her dreams. Without even time to  mourn, she courageously defies convention to run  her family's California newspaper and care for  her five younger siblings. Unable to forget her  fiance Charles, she is determined never to marry, to  hkeep her family together, and to fight to  survive as a woman alone. But Phillip, her beloved  oldest brother, sets out for Harvard and tragically  betrays her trust. Madcap brother George turns to  the excitement of Hollywood during its magical  days, not to the Winfield publishing empire. And  lovely Alexis, who narrowly escaped death when the  Titanic went down, grows into a  troubled runaway whom even Edwina's love may not be  able to save. The two youngest, Fannie and Teddy,  remain with Edwina at home. Compelling  and deeply moving, No Greater Love  questions a woman's choices and the price she  must pay for making them. And in an unforgettable  climax, it offers an answer--as Edwina confronts the  ghosts haunting her and take an extraordinary  risk for her future and her heart.From the Paperback edition.
