It was just before Christmas, 1940. The war is raging in Europe when Kate Jamison makes her debut in New York City. In a room filled with the scions of East Coast society, it is Joe Albright who catches Kate's eye. At twenty-nine, Joe is already a legend in flying circles. All Kate sees is a strikingly handsome man, at once awkward and larger-than-life. Joe, too, is caught off balance, seeing in Kate the soulmate he never expected to find. As the months pass, they will meet again, forging a bond that will set the course of both their lives. Kate will study at Radcliffe. Joe will skyrocket to fame in aviation. Joe's planes are his life, his passion. But he always comes back to Kate. Even after the long, dark years of World War II, Joe returns. Never willing to stay, always needing to fly away.

When the war is over, Kate wants marriage and a family. Joe wants the world, his limitless horizons, and the aviation empire he is building. Unwilling to wait any longer, Kate moves on. But when a chance encounter brings them together again, the time has finally come to make a choice that will have profound consequences for them both.

Against a vivid backdrop of war and thrilling innovation, Danielle Steel weaves a story that spans three decades, of two intensely different people who, in spite of themselves, are irrevocably woven into the fabric of each other's lives. It is a novel of extraordinary grace and compassion from a master storyteller.

One of my favorite authors. She once again writes a wonderful book.
