Publisher's Summary

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.

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. . .

Great Love Story!

If you could sum up Country in three words, what would they be?

Love is Beautiful.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Country?

When Stephanie meets Chase on the hiking trail at the Grand Canyon.

What does Dan John Miller bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

He did a wonderful job narrating all the characters, even the female ones.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes, definitely!

Any additional comments?

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!

Redundant

I found the book fun and cute but got irritated by the redundancy and repetition. I got it the first time.

FABULOUS!!!

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.

Loved it!!!

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!!

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.
