Millions adored Daphne Fields, for she shared their passion, their pain, their joy, and their sorrow. But America's most popular novelist remained a closed book to the world -- guarding her life with a fierce privacy no reporter could crack.
Her life hides a myriad of secrets. The husband and daughter she lost in a fire. The son who barely survived it and would be deaf forever. The victories, the defeats, the challenges of facing life as a woman alone and helping her son meet the challenges of his handicap. A strong woman, she would not accept defeat, or help from anyone... until she found she could no longer face it alone.

This was a really good book. It was one of the author's better ones in my opinion.

This one made me cry. It is Steel's usual story of a woman overcoming adversity but how she does it will rivet you to the story and you will not want to put it down.

even for Danielle Steel, this talented heroine has a LOT of adversity to overcome-but you know she does. I know it's a formula, but it's very readable for a plane ride or poolside this summer. dealing with deafness is an interesting plot twist in this one.

my copy of this book has a little water damage. I got it used from a library. But, no text is damaged.
