Annie Ferguson was a bright young Manhattan architect. Talented, beautiful, just starting out with her first job, new apartment and boyfriend, she had the world in the palm of her hand - until a single phone call altered the course of her life forever. Overnight, she became the mother to her sister's three orphaned children, keeping a promise she never regretted making, even if it meant putting her own life indefinitely on hold.

Now, at forty-two, as independent as ever, with a satisfying career and a family that means everything to her, Annie is comfortable being single and staying that way. She appears to have no time for anything else. With her nephew and nieces now young adults and confronting major challenges of their own, Annie is navigating a parent's difficult passage between lending them a hand and letting go, and suddenly facing an empty nest. The eldest, twenty-eight-year-old Liz, an overworked, struggling editor in a high-powered job at Vogue, has never allowed any man to come close enough to hurt her. Ted, at twenty-four a serious and hardworking law student, is captivated by a much older, much more experienced woman with children, who is leading him much further than he wants to go. And the youngest, twenty-one-year-old Katie - impulsive, artistic, rebellious - is an art student about to make a choice that will lead her to an entirely different world she is in no way prepared for but determined to embrace.

Then, just when least expected, a chance encounter changes Annie's life yet again in the most unexpected direction of all.

    " I liked the story idea. There's a great build up of characters and plots but the ending doesn't leave me satisfied. But then I find this true of most of the author's books and I still find myself reading them. "

    " This was my first Danielle Steel book and I was pleasantly surprised. My mother wanted me to read this so badly because she thought I would really like it. I liked it much more than expected. I liked that it was an easy read with not too much romance. It had an element of mystery and really enjoyed how it ended. "

    " I really liked this book by Danielle Steel. I think it was one of the better books I've read by her recently. She made the characters all so relatable that I could feel what each of them was going through. Very nicely done! "

    " Just finished this today..it was ok. I have read a lot of Danielle Steel books, and this was not my favorite. I felt like a lot of the details were repeated too often. Normally like the pace of her books, but this one kind of dragged on. Hopefully, the next one I read will be better! "
