Publisher's Summary

Number one New York Times best-selling author Danielle Steel follows a talented and creative woman as she launches her first television series, helping to recruit an unforgettable cast that will bring a dramatic family saga to the screen. 

Kait Whittier has built her magazine column into a hugely respected read followed by fans across the country. She loves her work and adores her grown children, treasuring the time they spend together. But after two marriages she prefers to avoid the complications and uncertainties of a new love. Then, after a chance meeting with Zack Winter, a television producer visiting Manhattan from Los Angeles, everything changes. 

Inspired by the true story of her own indomitable grandmother, Kait creates the story line for a TV series. And when she shares her work with Zack, he is impressed and decides to make this his next big-budget project. Within weeks, Kait is plunged into a colorful world of actors and industry pros who will bring her vision to life. A cool, competent director. An eccentric young screenwriter. A world-famous actress coping with private tragedy. A reclusive grand dame from Hollywood's Golden Age. A sizzling starlet whose ego outstrips her abilities. LA's latest "bad boy" actor, whose affairs are setting LA on fire. An unknown ingenue with outsize talent. And a rugged, legendary leading man. 

As secrets are shared, the cast becomes a second family for Kait. But in the midst of a charmed year, she is suddenly forced to confront the greatest challenge a mother could ever know. The strength of women - between generations, and among friends, colleagues, and family - takes center stage in this irresistible novel, as all-too-real people find the courage to persevere in life's drama of heartbreak and joy.

Great read!

The storyline is full of a variety of characters and each has redeeming qualities. The main character is loving, patient and wise. I’d like to be more like her. The only negative is that at the beginning, the author is a little too repetitive as she tells how much the main character loves her children. I was afraid I’d fall in love with the characters and feel like I was left hanging. She does a good job of closing out the storyline and I felt fulfilled.

Novel Depicts Life on the Set

Despite Danielle Steel's nasty habits of too much showing and not enough telling and use of unnecessary adverbs, I'm always drawn to her stories, and this one was no different. Fascinated by the entertainment industry, I enjoyed being transported into the lives of these characters. Being from Wyoming, I felt a special connection with the actor from that state to whom Kait becomes attracted near the end. The narrator did an excellent job portraying even the female characters. I highly recommend this book to anyone interested in how a television series is produced and who likes a heartwarming story with a neat ending.

Very nice

I was immersed in this story almost immediately and could actually visualize myself as being right in the midst of things. Lots of laughs and quite a few tears were shed, but Ms. Steel came through with another gem.

terrible!

who chose the narrator? I am an avid Danielle Steele reader and fan. I have read every book that she has written and decided to try an auduble.

the narrator is so dull and dry that I can't get through chapter 4.

these books are about inspiring women and I was not inspired at all.

Nice pleasant story

This was a nice, pleasant story but I didn’t think it was up to Danielle Steele’s usual caliber of writing. I thought this was a very simplistic story.

Fantastic story with depth

I love Danielle Steel and this book was different in so far as how the characters played out. The narrator was great so not sure why some complain. If you're a Danielle Steel fan, you will love this book.
