Publisher's Summary

Number one New York Times best-selling author Danielle Steel follows a talented and creative woman as she launches her first television series, helping to recruit an unforgettable cast that will bring a dramatic family saga to the screen. 

Kait Whittier has built her magazine column into a hugely respected read followed by fans across the country. She loves her work and adores her grown children, treasuring the time they spend together. But after two marriages she prefers to avoid the complications and uncertainties of a new love. Then, after a chance meeting with Zack Winter, a television producer visiting Manhattan from Los Angeles, everything changes. 

Inspired by the true story of her own indomitable grandmother, Kait creates the story line for a TV series. And when she shares her work with Zack, he is impressed and decides to make this his next big-budget project. Within weeks, Kait is plunged into a colorful world of actors and industry pros who will bring her vision to life. A cool, competent director. An eccentric young screenwriter. A world-famous actress coping with private tragedy. A reclusive grand dame from Hollywood's Golden Age. A sizzling starlet whose ego outstrips her abilities. LA's latest "bad boy" actor, whose affairs are setting LA on fire. An unknown ingenue with outsize talent. And a rugged, legendary leading man. 

As secrets are shared, the cast becomes a second family for Kait. But in the midst of a charmed year, she is suddenly forced to confront the greatest challenge a mother could ever know. The strength of women - between generations, and among friends, colleagues, and family - takes center stage in this irresistible novel, as all-too-real people find the courage to persevere in life's drama of heartbreak and joy.

Danielle - please stop writing books

I cannot put into words how much I despised this book. But I will try anyway and hopefully I wont go on and on like the author seemed to. It took almost 2 hours of listening before the book went anywhere. The two hours I spent listening to the narrator drone on and on about how being an empty nester is horrifying was only only made worse by the pretentious delivery of said material. So what was worse? The writing or the telling? Both were so bad that i cant even give this book a zero. Even if I can't get my money back I wish there was some way I could get that time back.

Forced and Rushed

This is a typical DS book but the story was forced and rushed. Not pleased with this one at all. Another huge issue-this is a book about women and empowerment and a male read the story. Very incongruous. Plus, he was not a great narrator. Very disappointed.

Novel Depicts Life on the Set

Despite Danielle Steel's nasty habits of too much showing and not enough telling and use of unnecessary adverbs, I'm always drawn to her stories, and this one was no different. Fascinated by the entertainment industry, I enjoyed being transported into the lives of these characters. Being from Wyoming, I felt a special connection with the actor from that state to whom Kait becomes attracted near the end. The narrator did an excellent job portraying even the female characters. I highly recommend this book to anyone interested in how a television series is produced and who likes a heartwarming story with a neat ending.

great book wish the ending was longer.

I wish the ending lasted longer. I wanted to hear more about Kate and Nick's future. or honoring her daughter in some sort of way. like creating some type of charity in honor of Candace. but all in all the story was amazing. (as usual)

Not for me

Ended up reading the paper back, narration was terrible. Good story, typical Danielle Steel writing. No surprises but this narrator just didn't grasp the characterization.
