Four sisters, a Manhattan brownstone, and a tumultuous year
of loss and courage are at the heart of Danielle Steelâ€™s
new novel about a remarkable family, a stunning tragedyâ€“and
what happens when four very different young women come
together under one very lively roof.
Candyâ€“itâ€™s the only name she needsâ€“is blazing her way
through Paris, New York, and Tokyo as fashionâ€™s latest
international supermodel. . . .
Her sister Tammy has a job producing the most successful
hit show on TV, and a home she loves in L.A.â€™s Hollywood
Hills. . . . In New York, oldest sister Sabrina is an
ambitious young lawyer, while Annie is an American artist
in Florence, living for her art. . . . On one Fourth of
July weekend, as they do every year, the four sisters come
home to Connecticut for their familyâ€™s annual gathering.
But before the holiday is over, tragedy strikes and their
world is utterly changed.
Suddenly, four sisters who have been fervently pursuing
success and their own livesâ€“on opposite sides of the worldâ€“
reunite to share one New York brownstone, to support each
other and their father, and to pick up the pieces while one
sister struggles to heal her shattered body and soul. Thus
begins an unscripted chapter of their lives, as a bustling
house is soon filled with eccentric dogs, laughter, tears,
friends, men . . . and the kind of honesty and
unconditional love only sisters can provide. But as the
four women settle in, they are forced to confront the
direction of their respective lives. As the year passes and
another July Fourth approaches, a season of grief and
change gives way to new beginningsâ€“as a family comes
together to share its blessings and a future filled with
surprises and, ultimately, hope.
With unerring insight and compassion, Danielle Steel tells
a compelling story of four sisters who love and laugh,
struggle and triumph . . . and are irrevocably woven into
the fabric of each otherâ€™s lives. Brilliantly blending
humor and heartbreak, she delivers a powerful message about
the fragilityâ€“and the wonderâ€“of life.
