At eleven, Pip Mackenzie’s young life has already been touched by tragedy; a terrible accident plunged her mother, Ophelie, into inconsolable grief. But on a foggy summer day, on a beach near San Francisco, Pip meets someone who fills her sad gray world with color and light.

From the moment Pip walks up to his easel on the sand, artist Matt Bowles senses something magical: she reminds him of his own daughter before a bitter divorce tore his family apart. When Matt offers to teach Pip to draw, Ophelie is, at first, hostile and wary of this newfound friendship. But Matt’s steady kindness makes her realize how much joy he has brought into their lives, helping them to laugh again and to rediscover what they have lost. As this season of healing continues, Ophelie and Pip must leave the beach for the city, and Ophelie begins a volunteer outreach job for the homeless. Soul-sharing phone calls and autumn beach getaways deepen Ophelie and Matt’s friendship, but fate strikes another blow. Out of the blue, Matt must confront unfinished business from his past, and Ophelie is struck by a stunning betrayal. As these events reverberate, something extraordinary happens. Out of the darkness that has shadowed them both comes an unexpected gift of hope.

With grace and compassion, Danielle Steel explores the fragile bonds between mothers and daughters, husbands and wives, family members and lifelong friends. Her haunting, impassioned novel takes us across the complex landscape of loss to the blessings that arise from even the darkest tragedies. At once a story of triumph and a moving elegy to those who suffer and survive, Safe Harbour is perhaps her most powerful and life-affirming novel to date.

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Donna | 2/16/2014

    " I might have rated the book higher but Ms. Steel was constantly repeating a section of the book over and over again. I don't know if she thought her fans didn't understand what she was trying to get across or that we are not with the program...so to speak. Other than that I enjoyed and liked the book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Leo | 2/15/2014

    " I thought at first it was going to be one of those boring books but I took interest in the family problems which our society is confronted with. In one instance you have a widow with a teen child. The widow is wrapped up in her sadness. A divorced man, mopping over his loneliness, meets the widow by way of the widows teen daughter. He likes to paint harbour scenes and the teen enjoys learning how to paint. The slowly relationship grows and the children that were in between find steady happines. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shannon | 1/24/2013

    " I never really cared too much for Danielle Steel, but I really enjoyed this book. It deals with a lot of sorrow and heart ache, but it really shows the healing process...maybe a little predictable but it is a good story. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carol Hassett | 9/29/2012

    " I am very curious as to how she can sell so many books when they are all basically the same but I read a lot of her books so whatever she's doing is working. Interesting. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Marge | 4/14/2012

    " This started out so promising and I enjoyed reading but took the typical Danielle Steel turn of repeated ideas/words and corny ending. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jessica | 3/17/2012

    " Good story, however I thought that it was repetitive. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kathy Leddy | 12/13/2011

    " i AM NOT A DANIELLE STEEL FAN BUT SOMEONE SAID TO READ THIS AND I TRULY ENJOYED IT OUT OF SOME OF THE OTHERS I HAVE READ "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Hanan Tariq | 10/29/2011

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nicola | 10/21/2011

    " Always enjoy the light read of a Danielle Steele, despite already knowing what is going to happen. Steele follows her set formula, and while it is repetitive and predictable, it continues to work. As usual I got drawn into the characters. I guess I am a sucker for a good romance novel! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Germaine Chevarie | 9/27/2011

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kristen | 4/22/2011

    " It was ok. The stories of the character were pretty good, but it was very long and drawn out. There were a few unexpected twists, but ultimately it was a predictable ending. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Stasha | 11/23/2010

    " I thought that it was a bit dull in the beginning, but bit parts surrounding the characters' pasts kept me reading on. It wasn't bad at all.Left me satisfied when I finished. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Glenda | 1/28/2010

    " I think this is one of Danielle Steel's best books. This had a page turner plot and had many loving relationships. The book had much emotion and seemed to move more quickly than most of Ms. Steel's books. "
