In this rich, involving novel from #1 New York Times bestselling author 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 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, 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, and 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.

Narrator was good and great story line
Easy to listen to, brought characters to life
Really great narrator kept me interested in the story.
Danielle Steele is great escapism and feel good
Varied pitch and modulation keeps your interest.
Had to keep listening and would have liked to listen to it in one sitting
Worth getting this book especially if you like romance with a back story.
"Like narrators voice."
Touching. Hate what we women do to ourselves, for love. Doing things for the sake of our children. How do we humans become emotionally disconnected? Why do we allow it? Oh yeah, but this is fiction, right. . .
I found the book fun and cute but got irritated by the redundancy and repetition. I got it the first time.
"Great Love Story!"
Love is Beautiful.
When Stephanie meets Chase on the hiking trail at the Grand Canyon.
He did a wonderful job narrating all the characters, even the female ones.
My 1st Danielle Steel book. Love Love Loved it. I will definitely listen to more of her books now. She's a great story teller!
Fabulous doesn't do it justice. I enjoy reading love stories and this one was age-appropriate for me. The author skillfully wove tragedy, love at first sight, angst of mourning children, and happily ever after. This was my first Danielle Steel Book. It won't be my last. Dan John Miller is the best Audible narrator I've heard to date. He switched characters without losing me in the changeovers. I will be looking for him, again, too. I would recommend this book, author and narrator to my romance novel-loving friends.
"Another "GREAT" story by Danielle Steel!"
Once I started, I had a hard time turn it off. Many parts in this story spelled out my own life experiences currently.
Great voice and great performance too. Thank you!
Thank you Ms. Steel for another great book! Keep up the good work!
Loved this book, kept my attention, I stayed in the car longer than necessary just to listen to this book, highly recommend this book
I loved this story and the performance. I felt like I was right there with Stephanie and Chase. I laughed out loud and cried with them. And the secondary characters were well rounded. Danielle Steel is the best at story telling. A must read/listen!!
Great naration and good concept
modern it up a bit and they may make Hallmark
easy to listen to. surprised that an SF writer would be so antiqueted as to how women play a role today...I would really love to be more supportive.
Never disappointed in her books!!! Loved this one. :-) Beginning was a little dragging but with a great ending!
"For a niche audience"
This book was predictable. However, there was very good incite on moving on...in this case, after a sudden death. For me, however, the incite was tremendous even for someone who has suffered a later in life divorce and for those who give support. Otherwise, it was just a story.
