Publisher's Summary

Simon Steinberg, a major movie producer, and Blaire Scott, an award-winning television writer, are among the most respected couples in Hollywood. They have defied the clichés, keeping their marriage together for decades. Their children - Samantha, Scott, and Allegra - are successful and happy but must face the challenges we fear for our own children as well.  

As an attorney for the stars, 29-year-old Allegra Steinberg is used to negotiating major movie deals and fielding phone calls at all hours of the day and night. But she has little time for a private life - until a chance encounter with a New York writer turns her life upside down. Suddenly, Allegra finds herself planning a wedding at her parents' Bel Air home.

As preparations begin for a September ceremony, surprise announcements and ever-increasing anxiety bring out the best and worst in everyone. But as couples in each generation of the Steinberg family struggle with broken vows and new hopes, the real meaning of Allegra's wedding emerges. For the bride, the ceremony is a bridge between her past and her future. For her parents, it is a reminder of the bond that holds them all together. And for both families, it is an opportunity for reconciliation and new hope. 

In a compelling portrait of real people in an unreal world, Danielle Steel uses Hollywood as a backdrop to reveal the dreams, the fears, and the expectations of a ceremony that unites us all and changes lives forever....

The Wedding

I have always being a fervor reader of Danielle Steel. I think this novel was a rushed and not too much thought put into it. I returned it back, it was not worth the price even though I bought it at a discount price.

God this guys voice

I just bought this book and I honestly don’t think I can get through it. I picture the narrator being an old man, balding and wearing geeky clothes. What a total waste of money

And Danielle Steele has never been so shallow in her character development. I didn’t notice until I was halfway through it that it was written in 2000. What a waste of money

Pleasant story

This book was what I call pleasant easy listening. It is uncomplicated while highlighting many of the real life challenge s that we all face in life. The love and commitment the family had for each other that was built through the years helped when they faced big problems. Perhaps one can argue that the story was simplistic, but let's face it, life is as easy or as hard as we make it!
