Candy is blazing her way through Paris, New York, and Tokyo as fashion's latest supermodel. Her sister Tammy has a job producing a hit show on TV. In New York, oldest sister Sabrina is an ambitious young lawyer. And Annie is an American artist in Florence, living for her art. On one Fourth of July weekend, as they do every year, the four sisters come home to Connecticut for their family's annual gathering. But before the holiday is over, tragedy strikes, and their world is utterly changed.
Suddenly, four sisters who have been fervently pursuing success and their own lives reunite to share one New York brownstone, to support each other and their father, and to pick up the pieces while one sister struggles to heal her shattered body and soul. A bustling house is soon filled with eccentric dogs, laughter, tears, friends, men, and the kind of honesty and unconditional love only sisters can provide. But as the four women settle in, they are forced to confront the directions of their respective lives.
With unerring insight and compassion, Danielle Steel tells a compelling story of sisters who are irrevocably woven into the fabric of each other's lives. Brilliantly blending humor and heartbreak, she delivers a powerful message about the fragility and the wonder of life.
