Miraculous? Indeed. Miraculous that Steel ekes 200 pages of book out of 50 pages of recycled plot. Quinn Thompson, a 61-year-old recent widower, has just bought the boat of his dreams—an 80-meter beauty capable of sailing around the world. Because that's all Quinn wants to do besides read his late wife Jane's old journals and poetry, which offer an outpouring of love and forgiveness for a man so obsessed with "building his empire" that he ignored his wife and family completely. Less forgiving is Quinn's daughter, Alex, who wants nothing to do with him. Sure that he is alone in the world, Quinn finds himself having regular Friday dinners with an unlikely San Francisco pair: smart but illiterate carpenter Jack Adams and lonely divorcée Maggie Hartman. Full of self-loathing, Quinn refuses to give in to his desire for Maggie; instead he decides to teach Jack to read. Readers follow the two through a 150-page rapturous description of the respect and admiration they have for each other, while Quinn attempts to forgive himself enough to allow himself to love Maggie

For Quinn Thompson, the storm of the century will bring down a barrier he has built around himself since his wife's death. For neighbor Maggie Dartman, it will spark friendship at a time when she needs it most. And for Jack Adams, a carpenter who repairs Quinn's and Maggie's homes, the storm brings an opportunity: to help two people and to be repaid with the greatest gift of all.

A unique friendship forged and something extraordinary begins to happen.... Maggie, still grieving a loss, slowly comes alive again - and Jack finally shares a painful secret he has hidden for years. But at the center of the friendship is Quinn. A man who has scaled the heights of business, Quinn is now adrift, waiting as builders finish a yacht he plans to sail around the world. Consumed by guilt over all he missed with his family, he is focused only on escaping to the sea. But as his friendship with Maggie begins to change, Quinn faces a choice - between a safe haven and an adventure of the heart. The choice he makes will affect other lives as powerfully as his own. And it will take him into a second terrifying storm that will bring him danger... or deliverance.

I just love Danielle Steel. She hits another homerun with the story of a widower and a sailboat. Along the way there is love, dissappointment, and lots of travel. A great book.

If you like Danielle Steele, you will love this book. It was one of my favorite and I hesitated to list it. It is about a widower, a divorced woman and a carpenter who brings all three together. It is about losing and rediscovering love through a bad storm, a wrecked house and a yacht being built. It is typical Danielle Storm and makes me cry every time I read it.

This book is primarily about three people. Quinn Thompson is the primary person in this book. His wife died about a year previously. He lives in San Francisco and has had a very successful life. Around Christmas, a tremendous storm hits San Francisco. It damages alot of buildings. So, Quinn finally locates someone, Jack, to fix his house. He also meets his neighbor, Maggie. The three of them become great friends.

As time progresses, however, Maggie and Quinn begin a relationship, but Quinn has to leave eventually because he had another boat built.

The book does describe the lives of Jack, Maggie and Quinn and what transpires in their lives.
