Danielle Steel has been hailed as one of the world's most popular authors, with over 600 million copies of her novels sold. Her many international bestsellers include Betrayal, Hotel Vendome, Happy Birthday, 44 Charles Street, Legacy, Family Ties, and other highly acclaimed novels. She is also the author of His Bright Light, the story of her son Nick Traina's life and death.
This latest novel by the best-selling author is a story of friendship and lifelong ties rather than romance. From the first day of kindergarten to adulthood, three boys and two girls are joined in friendship, love, challenges, successes, and failures. Each character brings unique abilities to the friendship mix, and the listener will be swept along on the ride. The majority of the story is entertaining, but the ending is weak and rushed. In this performance featuring a large and varied cast of children and parents, narrator Nick Podehl clearly defines each person and their place in the overall story. VERDICT Recommended for Steel's fans who don't mind a slight departure from her usual plotlines. [The Delacorte hc was a New York Times best seller.-Ed.]-J.
