When a high-powered gallery owner collides with a wildly offbeat artist, it’s the perfect recipe for disaster. But in her 63rd bestselling novel, Danielle Steel proves that when two hopelessly mismatched people share a love for art, a passion for each other, and a city like Paris, nothing is truly impossible…or is it?

Everything Sasha does is within the boundaries of tradition. Liam is sockless in December. Sasha is widowed, a woman who knows she was lucky enough to be married to the most wonderful man in the world and thankful for every moment they had. Liam is half in and half out of a marriage that only a “wacky” artist could manage, and that his own impossibly impulsive behavior has helped tear apart. But while Sasha has been methodically building her father’s Parisian art gallery into an intercontinental success story, Liam has been growing into one of the most original and striking young painters of his time. So while the two are utterly unalike—and a nine-year age difference stares them squarely in the face—the miracle of art brings them crashing together. Now the question is, can Sasha guard her reputation while juggling a secret, somewhat scandalous relationship? And how can Liam, who lives for the moment, put up with a woman who insists on having things her own way, in her own style, and at her own time?

For Sasha, it’s a matter of keeping Liam hidden from her grown children and well-heeled clientele as she commutes between New York and Paris and two thriving galleries. For Liam, it’s about creating chaos out of order, bringing out the wild streak that Sasha barely knows she has, of choosing pizza over foie gras, and making love when others are busy making money. That is, until a family tragedy suddenly alters Liam’s life—and forces a choice and a sacrifice that neither one of them could have expected. But from the snow falling on the Tuileries to the joy of eating ice cream by candlelight, the artist and the art dealer have tasted perfection. And giving up now might just be the most impossible thing of all.

With unerring insight into the hearts of men and women—and into the soul of the artist—Danielle Steel takes us into a world of glamour and genius, priceless art and dazzling creativity. From the luxurious galleries of Europe to the endless beaches of the Hamptons, Impossible weaves an extraordinary tale of love and compromise, of taking chances and counting blessings. With brilliant color and breathtaking emotion, Danielle Steel has written her most compelling novel to date.

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sherri | 2/10/2014

    " This was okay but a little corny in regards to the use of the word "impossible" throughtout the whole story. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Brittany | 2/9/2014

    " There are some Danielle Steel books that i love: Zoya, Palomino, Granny Dan, Malice. This one was awful. It was boring and lacked any real passion in the characters. It was like she had an idea but had too much else going on in her life or was being pushed to a deadline and just wrote words. She kept repeated herself and it was so irritating! The main character couldn't get over her same issue through the entire book so they just kept breaking up and I actually started thinking he should just leave her for good because she just got so annoying. I was hesitant to ever read another Danielle Steel again, but I read a different one after that and it turns out it was just this book. I do not recommend it. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Terrah | 2/9/2014

    " This book was alright, but I think it is better suited to women who are older and have grown children. Much like the other Danielle Steel book I read (Rogue), her main character is a 40-50 year old widow/divorcee with grown children. A lot of the conflict is about how her new romance will affect her children and how it will reflect on her after her previous marriage. These are not things that I can easily relate to, and so the book was not as enjoyable for me as I assume it would be for someone in her target audience. I think I will put her books on the shelf for now. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Deb | 1/29/2014

    " Easy to read and entertaining, but not one of Danielle Steel's best. It was better than watching re-runs. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kathleen | 1/29/2014

    " I am going to see it to Sandy T. Everyone have fun with it. I do not want it back. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marnie Meisner | 1/24/2014

    " This was a really good book about second chances.. ok well it ended up more than that, but worked out in the long run. Good read! Not one of the typical Danielle stories that I have read. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Terrie | 1/24/2014

    " The usual romantic angst expected of Danielle Steel. A widow who is the owner of a major art studio falls in love with one of her younger artists. At least the sex was not descriptive. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Diane S. | 1/19/2014

    " Just not a romance fan. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Melvago | 1/19/2014

    " gallery owner, crazy artist - o.k. but little depth "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Shirley Lucas | 1/13/2014

    " It's about two people from different walks of life, who meet after one of their spouses dies and how different their worlds are. As unlikely as it seems they do relate to each other. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Deborah | 1/4/2014

    " typical steel book, love lost love found love lost love found...read it in one day "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kathy | 1/4/2014

    " typical Danielle Steel story, was the perfect book to spend a quiet weekend nursing a cold. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Chris | 1/2/2014

    " I have sworn never to waste my time reading another Danielle Steel novel. She's just not my kind of author. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Salma Kamal | 1/2/2014

    " AFTER I READ THE BOOK I THOUGHT IT WAS OK BUT IT ISN'T WHAT I EXPECTED , I THOUGHT IT WOULD BE MORE AMUSING , INTERESTING AND HARD TO PUT. i THING I NEED TO READ MORE NOVELS BY DANIELLE STEEL TO DECIDE ABOUT HER BOOKS "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jennie | 12/11/2013

    " I started reading this beginning of last year. I put it away and a few months later picked it up again. I could hardly get through it. It was kind of boring and the main characters were too dramatic for me. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Melody | 8/5/2013

    " Impossible de ne pas verser une petite larme avec ce livre. "

    " art dealer and young artist "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Patt | 5/30/2013

    " Definitely not my favorite Steel book. I kept thinking I would never get to the end of this story. Too much back and forth and never solving the problem. I haven't read a Steel for a while. Now I know why! "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Jody | 11/11/2012

    " I guess I'm not much of a romance novel reader - the book was given to me as a gift because of the London references, but that wasn't enough for me to fully enjoy the storyline of two people, complete opposites, that fall in and out of love several times in the book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rebecca | 9/2/2012

    " Widowed Art Dealer Is Romanced by a "Wacky Artist" "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Celine | 8/20/2012

    " Typical Danielle Steel---love, suffering, recovery "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Tammy | 7/3/2012

    " I usually love Danielle Steel's books, but I did not care for this one. I did not like the older woman younger man theme, that is not my thing. I also did not care for the "wacky artist" personality of the main character. He was not likable to me. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nivi_pooh | 2/15/2012

    " Well, its an OK book just a low afternoon breezy reading kinds. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Stacey | 11/13/2011

    " I haven't read a Danielle Steel book in a long time. Love stories are so predictable. But the journey was nice. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Tina | 8/12/2011

    " I needed a paperback book to taket to the pool. One I did not care if it got wet. Predictable. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Laurie | 4/8/2011

    " disappointing in so many ways. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brittni | 2/16/2011

    " I really enjoyed this book! The beginning was slow but I liked the way everything came together in the end! I almost had a heart attack a few times and I definitely shed a tear or two toward the end. Good love story even though I don't think I could ever be as forgiving as Sasha was. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Deborah | 1/15/2011

    " Atrocious book... Wonder how someone could pass of such crap and perverse thoughts as a novel and still enjoy the luxury of being a renowned and world acclaimed author... Repulsive... "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Anne | 7/20/2010

    " Not one of her best. It was slow and the on-going narrative about the things wrong with Liam were annoying. I found myself thinking- OK, we know how immature he is, can we move on now. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Vika | 12/14/2009

    " Did anybody count how many times Steel used the words "Possible" and "Impossible"? I was really annoyed with that to the point that it ruined the whole book for me.. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Serena | 11/8/2009

    " It must be impossible that a book is that bad.
    Unfortunately, it's not. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Chiny | 8/13/2009

    " A bit wordy like the other one but it has a good story too. Wish it was Possible in real life :) "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Andrea | 4/21/2009

    " So I really didn't like this book. I thought the begining was great, fast passed, kep tyou interested. The end was great. Made you wanting to read it make sure he came back to her. But the middle was soooo slow. It was so hard to keep reading. It was not my favorite from Danielle Steel. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Arista | 3/29/2009

    " I think this was her best book. It captured how something unlikely could happen btwn 2 people who never would have been a good match. But It could have been more realistic "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marianne | 3/6/2009

    " Not one of Danielle Steel's best .... but not one of her worst either "

    " This was okay but a little corny in regards to the use of the word "impossible" throughtout the whole story. "
