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.
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.
