Publisher's Summary

The phone call came on a snowy December afternoon. Kate was certain it was Joe, the brilliant visionary man who had been her soulmate, her driving force since the night they met, almost 34 years before. What she got was the one call she had never wanted, and didn't expect. As the snow continued to fall, Kate's mind drifted back, to the moment when she and Joe first met. She had been just 17 and he was young, powerful, dazzling, and different from any man she'd ever known.

It is just days before Christmas, 1940. The war is raging in Europe when Kate Jamison makes her debut in New York City. In a room filled with scions of East Coast society and the leading political figures of the day, it is Joe Allbright who catches Kate's eye. At 29, Joe is the brilliant protégé of Charles Lindbergh, and already a legend in flying circles for his record-breaking speed and state-of-the-art airplane designs. All Kate sees is a tall, strikingly handsome man who seems at once awkward and larger-than-life, like a shining star - just out of reach. Joe, too, is caught off balance by his response to Kate, seeing in this beautiful woman vitality and youth, the lifelong soulmate he never expected to find.

Against a vivid backdrop of war and thrilling innovation, Danielle Steel breathes life into history, weaving an intensely human story that spans three decades, of two tremendously different people, who in spite of themselves, are irrevocably woven into the fabric of each other's lives. With rare insight and emotional power, she brings to life a tale of unconditional love, sacrifice, and compromise - the joining of two remarkable halves into a single, far more powerful whole. It is a novel of extraordinary grace and compassion from a master storyteller, perhaps the best story she has ever told.

Not one of her best books

I've read quite a few of Danielle Steel's books and this to me is the worst of them. To me, it was a very depressing read. Everytime I thought it going to get better,it just dragged on & on.

Least likable characters

The two lead characters were the least likable people ever. I kept hoping there would be something redeemable about them but no.

Not my favorite

I love Danielle Steel! But this book was not my favorite. I was getting tired of it. The on again, off again relationship was annoying after awhile...

Disappointing

I have enjoyed other books by this author, but I didn't even finish listening to this one. I waited for it to get better, but it never did. Don't waste a book credit on this.

Disappointing

I ended up skimming parts of this as her co-dependence was hard to listen to. She ended up throwing all the people, except Joe, under the bus. Probably her children as well.

Boring

I kept listening in the hope that the story would improve but it never did. Very predictable. Boring characters. Not really even a story. And hated how they break up then get back together, aaarrrrggghhh, just terrible.
