This was my first Steel novel, and must say that I was impressed. This one was not really a romance, but a mothers story of life falling apart. Her daughter was in a horrific accident and the rest of her life comes tumbling after that. This is a story of perseverance.

This book is about a woman whose life gets turned upside-down. Her daughter is in an accident(hence the name), her husband is cheating on her, and she is in the middle dealing with it all.

I thought this book was very good. A little repetitive, but great story.

For a romance, this is pretty gripping at times. This is a story of every mother's nightmare; a car full of teenagers have a tragic accident. Lives are shattered in one devastating moment. This book will cause you to reflect upon how you or your loved ones would react in a similar situation. A lot of angles here. The characters all have to face a world that has changed in a single moment. Some can't handle it, but those that do become stronger for the challenge. You may need your tissues in a few spots but I guarantee you will enjoy this book.

"Accident" is one of those books you just cannot put it down. It is a great story, that reminds us of how a single day can change your entire life. That Saturday of the "Accident" is one of those days. The main characters had a perfect life before their daughter and three other teenagers were involved in a terrible car accident which changed their lives forever...very emotional read.

Packed with Steel's trademark dense plotting and incidents featuring everything from sexual abuse and infidelity to car crashes and impossible relatives, her 32nd novel (after Vanished ) is set in California's plush Marin County. Page Clarke, devoted wife of Brad and mother of Allyson and Andy, finds her golden life shattered when 15-year-old Allyson sneaks off with friend Chloe to meet two boys. In a subsequent head-on collision, one boy is killed, Chloe is seriously injured and Allyson lapses into a coma. Page can't reach Brad, who confesses when he comes home that he is having an affair. Stunned and hurt, Page keeps a vigil at Allyson's bedside while also coping with needy seven-year-old Andy and an ambivalent husband who can't decide whether to stay or leave. Her only support comes from Chloe's father, Trygve Thorensen, who has been the primary caretaker for his kids since their mother divorced him. Other plot twists include a visit from Page's self-indulgent, neurotic mother and her sister, and a secret concerning the driver of the other car in the accident. While not drawn in much depth, the characters are believable; Trygve in particular is likable and nurturing. The ending is predictable but pleasant, bound to delight Steel's fans.

FROM THE PUBLISHER
Accident is a powerful and ultimately triumphant novel of lives shattered and changed by one devastating moment.

Although frequent business meetings keep her husband, Brad, away from home, Page Clarke feels blessed with her happy family and comfortable marriage. They have a house near San Francisco and she keeps busy looking after their seven-year-old son, Andy, and their teenage daughter, Allyson.
Allyson, at fifteen, is trying her wings and one weekend, instead of an evening with her friend Chloe, the girls lie and go out with two older high school boys. But a Saturday night that was supposed to be fun ends in tragedy when their car collides head-on with another.

At the hospital, Page finds Chloe's divorced father, Trygve, and, unable to locate Brad, she leans on his strength throughout the the long hours of tormenting questions. Will Allyson live? Will any of them? Were the teenagers drinking? Using drugs? Who was at fault? And where is her husband? Without Brad by her side Page feels her life start to come apart as she is forced to confront the fact that Allyson may not live, and if she does, she may never be the same again.

In an inspiring novel that explores how many people are affected by one tragic accident and how they survive it, Danielle Steel brings us close to the characters whose lives are as familiar as our own... and who live, as we all do, in a world where everything can change in a single moment.
