What do we do when our children don’t pursue our hopes for them? In this riveting novel, Danielle Steel explores how families can evolve in unexpected ways.
Successful attorney Kate Morgan couldn’t be prouder of her three grown children. Tamara, Anthony, and Claire all went to great schools, chose wonderful career paths, and would have made their father proud. A single mother for years, Kate keeps a tight rein on her family, her career, and even her own emotions, never once asking herself if her hopes for them are what they want. She is about to find out.
During one hectic summer in Manhattan, Kate’s world turns upside down. One daughter has been keeping an astonishing secret while the other confesses to an equally shocking truth. And her only son’s picture-book wedding is traded for a relationship that shakes Kate to her core. Struggling to keep up with a dizzying chain of events, Kate begins to realize that she has a part to play in the chaos. Because she too has kept secrets from her children.
Sometimes the surprising choices our children make are the right ones…even better than what we dreamed of for them.
