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
Annotation A young woman walks off a bus and into the lives of the Whittakers, a family shattered by the death of their youngest child. She too is escaping painful memories, and is expecting more, as it is the 1950s, and she is pregnant and unwed. But to the Whittakers, particularly 16-year-old Tom, her love is a precious and unexpected gift, as they help each other to reconcile with the past and begin living for the present.
Editors Note From the bestselling author of Vanished and Accident comes the unforgettable story of a young girl whose circumstances take her into a family desperate for the one thing she possesses and the one thing they need--whether they know it or not. National ads/media.
Editors Note 2 In a small, peaceful midwestern town in the 1950s, a happy family is shattered by a child's death, a loving marriage begins to unravel, and the arrival of a young woman changes many lives forever. Reprint.
