By Danielle Steel
NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER
In this rich, involving novel from Danielle Steel, a woman’s life catapults from the old to the new, as she learns to seize the moment.
Stephanie Adams is a devoted stay-at-home mother, married to a successful lawyer in northern California, in a dead marriage she’s stayed in for years for the sake of her children. Then, on a ski trip in Squaw Valley, her fifty-two-year-old husband dies suddenly and all bets are off.
Despite her children’s grief, and her own conflicting emotions and loneliness, Stephanie tries to move on, but struggles to find herself as an independent individual after years of giving up her life for everyone else. A spur-of-the-moment road trip and fork in the road lead her to Las Vegas, the Grand Canyon, and a chance meeting—and her whole life changes forever.
She meets country music megastar Chase Taylor, who opens his whole world to her. Stephanie is no longer the same woman, and can’t be anymore. A new man. A new life. The excitement of Nashville. She discovers not only Chase, but herself. The music is bittersweet and the lyrics true in his dazzling, exotic, and honest world.
As it deftly explores the complex ties between spouses, children, lovers, and friends, and dances between the past and the future, Danielle Steel’s moving novel brilliantly captures the shock of sudden loss, and the freedom it can bring. Here America’s most beloved novelist shares the enduring power of seizing the day. Carpe diem.

Country3By TKScrabbleI liked the characters, but the writing was very pedantic. See Tom run. I stuck with the story and enjoyed it.
Country5By MEAWSExcelent book! Loved everybook she writes. Thankyou! Looking for another book of her to read some more!
Country5By Mama WoschI enjoyed every minute of the book. So often women are lead to believe they don't deserve happiness. I was so proud of Stephanie when she put the past behind her and knew she was deserving of love just for being herself!
The Books Get Better and Better5By BJThompsonDanielle Steel is extraordinarily wonderful. Her books (I've read EVERY one) are so very true to the heart and soul of life. Can't wait for the next one. Thanks DS 💝
