Publisher's Summary

Hurricane Ophelia is bearing down on New York City. And in a matter of hours, six people, along with their families, friends, and millions of other New Yorkers living around them, will be caught up in the horrific flooding it unleashes.

Ellen Wharton has flown into New York from London, regardless of the weather and her husband's worry. The successful interior designer is intent on seeing her lively architect mother and has an important personal appointment to keep. But despite Ellen's urging, when the storm hits, seventy-four-year-old Grace Madison refuses to leave her Tribeca apartment in the midst of the evacuation zone, and they must eventually wade through chest-high water to the police boats outside.

British investment banker Charles Williams is traveling on business but is also eager to see his young daughters, who live with his beautiful, estranged ex-wife in SoHo. Desperate to find them, he checks the shelters where thousands have taken refuge and runs into Ellen and her mother.

Juliette Dubois, a dedicated ER doctor, fights to save lives when the generators at her hospital fail.

NYU students Peter Holbrook and Ben Weiss, living in a shabby downtown walkup, are excited by the adventure of the approaching hurricane, refuse to evacuate, and settle in with junk food and beer until their building threatens to collapse. Should they swim for it or not?

A day of chaos takes its toll. Lives, belongings, and loved ones are swept away. Heroes are revealed as the city and New Yorkers struggle to face a natural disaster of epic proportions. And then the real challenge begins, as the survivors face their futures, with damage to repair and scars to heal.

Danielle Steel fearlessly tackles a catastrophe and its aftermath with characters who are joined together by accident, then share their vulnerabilities, regrets, losses, and hopes. Keenly observed and brilliantly told, this is an unforgettable story that proves that while life can change in an instant, even the darkest storm can bring forth courage, resilience, unexpected joy, and new life. And it reminds us all that nature, at its fiercest, is a powerful force nothing and no one can resist.

Love Danielle Steel Absolutely love #Audible1

#Audible1 this company has changed my life, I am blind and love to read. Audible has been a life changer and I get access to any and every book I desire to read at all times. Their customer Service has been so helpful and always willing to to do what they can. The books are in an easy to read and easy to understand format, in order to navigate. The other thing I absolutely love, is the readers/voices, are very clear and interesting to listen to. Many reading services I’ve used over the years for the blind/visually impaired are monotoned, computerised or just down right boaring to listen to for long periods of time.

I love Danielle Steel books, this one was interesting, I enjoyed it very much. However I have many other Danielle Steel books that have touched my heart and soal much more.

Thank you #Audible1 for allowing me accessibility to reading, and offering number 1 customer service.

With graditude,

Orly Shamir

Male performance

I did not like the male voice that did the performance the way he did the women's voices was very mocking would be better with a female actor

I'm disappointed with the repeating!

The story was okay! I don't know why DS has to keep repeating things over and over. I haven't read any of her books lately, because of this. Same thing happened with this book. We get it the first time. Maybe, she has to make word count. Her earlier books are amazing. Now, not so much!

Not as predictable as most Danielle Steel books

I enjoy her stories as they always give hope after a great loss but sometimes they are too predictable. This story had several different characters that were genuine and reminded me of her earlier book Titanic that made me love her writing to begin with.

Not too impressed with the reading performance. His voice impressions of some characters made them sound like little kids.

Disappointing at the ending

I’m truly love most all Danielle steel books. I just was really disappointed with the ending. But at this time in my life I’m going through a divorce. And it’s a really really bad one. So just gave me Hope. Hope you all enjoy this in some special way.
