#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • Danielle Steel follows a talented and creative woman as she launches her first television series, helping to recruit an unforgettable cast that will bring a dramatic family saga to the screen.
Kait Whittier has built her magazine column into a hugely respected read followed by fans across the country. She loves her work and adores her grown children, treasuring the time they spend together. But after two marriages, she prefers to avoid the complications and uncertainties of a new love.
Then, after a chance meeting with Zack Winter, a television producer visiting Manhattan from Los Angeles, everything changes. Inspired by the true story of her own indomitable grandmother, Kait creates the storyline for a TV series. And when she shares her work with Zack, he is impressed and decides to make this his next big-budget project.
Within weeks, Kait is plunged into a colorful world of actors and industry pros who will bring her vision to life. A cool, competent director. An eccentric young screenwriter. A world-famous actress coping with private tragedy. A reclusive grande dame from Hollywood’s Golden Age. A sizzling starlet whose ego outstrips her abilities. L.A.’s latest “bad boy” actor, whose affairs are setting the city on fire. An unknown ingénue with outsized talent. And a rugged, legendary leading man. As secrets are shared, the cast becomes a second family for Kait. But in the midst of this charmed year, she is suddenly forced to confront the greatest challenge a mother could ever know.
The strength of women—across generations and among friends, colleagues, and family—takes center stage in this irresistible novel, as all-too-real people find the courage to persevere in life’s drama of heartbreak and joy.
The cast1By CAmcrapRepeat repeat repeat - what did her Grandmother do again? Oh, right, she baked cookies! This book is lousy.
Getting too old for today’s modern times1By Kcat206I used to love her books but she’s not with today’s generation, ways and technology and describes younger characters in an old fashioned way. It’s just repetitive and unable to believe the persona. It’s suggested she keeps her settings in past eras or hang it up. She just doesn’t get the modern day people under 50 anymore. It’s hard to get through her books anymore.
Beyond disappointed1By Lawarner68I felt I was reading a 5th grade story. I quit at the 5th chapter. And to think I paid full price. I used to love her books. Not anymore.
The Cast3By 00bettieI dearly love Danielle Steels books but this one is far too slow and very predictable! When I read Steel I can hardly put it down, no so this one. I know she’s working on several new ones so I’ll wait til the next.
Redundant2By LadyTooTallI’m so disappointed. Pages and pages of describing the same thing. I may not even finish it. 🙁
