NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

In this rich, involving novel from Danielle Steel, a woman's life catapults from the old to the new, as she learns to seize the moment.
 
COUNTRY
 
Stephanie Adams is a devoted stay-at-home mother, married to a successful lawyer in northern California, in a dead marriage she's stayed in for years for the sake of her children. Then, on a ski trip in Squaw Valley, her fifty-two-year-old husband dies suddenly and all bets are off.
 
Despite her children's grief, and her own conflicting emotions and loneliness, Stephanie tries to move on, but struggles to find herself as an independent individual after years of giving up her life for everyone else. A spur-of-the-moment road trip and fork in the road lead her to Las Vegas, the Grand Canyon, and a chance meeting--and her whole life changes forever.
 
She meets country music megastar Chase Taylor, who opens his whole world to her. Stephanie is no longer the same woman, and can't be anymore. A new man. A new life. The excitement of Nashville. She discovers not only Chase, but herself. The music is bittersweet and the lyrics true in his dazzling, exotic, and honest world.
 
As it deftly explores the complex ties between spouses, children, lovers, and friends, and dances between the past and the future, Danielle Steel's moving novel brilliantly captures the shock of sudden loss, and the freedom it can bring. Here America's most beloved novelist shares the enduring power of seizing the day. Carpe diem.

"Country" is a true Danielle Steel book - woman-centric and talking about two extremes in characters. Stephanie is cheated in her first marriage and when she gets a second chance she doesn't want to make a mistake. At the same time she realizes "it's all about fate and destiny and opening the right door at the right time, and having the guts to walk through it." Will she take a chance on Chase Taylor the Country Music Star? That's what the book is about and it's well-written if a trifle predictable. A light book which will provide relaxed summer reading.
