Publisher's Summary

Hurricane Ophelia is bearing down on New York City. And in a matter of hours, six people, along with their families, friends, and millions of other New Yorkers living around them, will be caught up in the horrific flooding it unleashes.

Ellen Wharton has flown into New York from London, regardless of the weather and her husband's worry. The successful interior designer is intent on seeing her lively architect mother and has an important personal appointment to keep. But despite Ellen's urging, when the storm hits, seventy-four-year-old Grace Madison refuses to leave her Tribeca apartment in the midst of the evacuation zone, and they must eventually wade through chest-high water to the police boats outside.

British investment banker Charles Williams is traveling on business but is also eager to see his young daughters, who live with his beautiful, estranged ex-wife in SoHo. Desperate to find them, he checks the shelters where thousands have taken refuge and runs into Ellen and her mother.

Juliette Dubois, a dedicated ER doctor, fights to save lives when the generators at her hospital fail.

NYU students Peter Holbrook and Ben Weiss, living in a shabby downtown walkup, are excited by the adventure of the approaching hurricane, refuse to evacuate, and settle in with junk food and beer until their building threatens to collapse. Should they swim for it or not?

A day of chaos takes its toll. Lives, belongings, and loved ones are swept away. Heroes are revealed as the city and New Yorkers struggle to face a natural disaster of epic proportions. And then the real challenge begins, as the survivors face their futures, with damage to repair and scars to heal.

Danielle Steel fearlessly tackles a catastrophe and its aftermath with characters who are joined together by accident, then share their vulnerabilities, regrets, losses, and hopes. Keenly observed and brilliantly told, this is an unforgettable story that proves that while life can change in an instant, even the darkest storm can bring forth courage, resilience, unexpected joy, and new life. And it reminds us all that nature, at its fiercest, is a powerful force nothing and no one can resist.

    Story
    "Disjointed"

    Although I enjoyed this novel, I felt that it wasn't of the same quality of Danielle Steel's usual novels. It felt more like 3 separate novels with no real connection, other than being huracain survivors. I felt that the 3 stories could have been explored more to a better conclusion. I was of the opinion that the 3 stories ended very abruptly & would have liked to have known what happened next. x

    "I'm disappointed with the repeating!"

    The story was okay! I don't know why DS has to keep repeating things over and over. I haven't read any of her books lately, because of this. Same thing happened with this book. We get it the first time. Maybe, she has to make word count. Her earlier books are amazing. Now, not so much!

    "Not as predictable as most Danielle Steel books"

    I enjoy her stories as they always give hope after a great loss but sometimes they are too predictable. This story had several different characters that were genuine and reminded me of her earlier book Titanic that made me love her writing to begin with.

    Not too impressed with the reading performance. His voice impressions of some characters made them sound like little kids.

    "Fail for me"

    I am fan of this author and was very disappointed. Some stories are predictable but this was a complete fail. I was stuck at a ferry landing for several hours so finished the listen but almost fell asleep. BORING and disappointing. I like Danielle Steel but not this one.

    "Redundant and simple"

    This is the first book I have read by this author. I found it repetitive and poorly written with a simple and uninteresting story line.

    "Completely believable"

    With all the natural disasters having occurred in the USA recently this is such a believable, touching story. All of the characters were so human! Each scenario was riveting and you could imagine feeling the same way had this occurred to you.

    The author did a wonderful job of bringing a very believable story to life. Dan John Miller did a very good job with the narration.

    Always looking forward to the next DS book.
