“Sometimes, if you aren't sure about something, you just have to jump off the bridge and grow your wings on the way down.”
Danielle Steel has received accolades all over the world for her incredibly writing. This American novelist is currently the best selling author alive and is listed as the fourth bestselling author of all time with over 800 million copies sold of her novels.
Danielle produces several books each year and all of her novels have been best sellers. This is mainly due to the fact that she follows a formula for many of her books: rich families facing a crisis, threatened by dark elements that will destroy them. Her books have been translated into 28 languages with 22 adapted for television.
Ginny Carter was once a rising Star in TV news, married, with a three-year-old son and a full and happy life – until her whole world dissolved on a freeway in a single instant. In the aftermath, she somehow pieces her life back together, but struggles to truly find meaning in her existence.
Then, on the anniversary of the fateful Accident, she meets a boy who will cause her life to change forever yet again. Thirteen-year-old Blue Williams has been living on the streets, rarely attending school, and utterly alone. Ginny reaches out to him, and slowly, their friendship grows. The two form an unusual bond and become the family they each lost.
But just as he is truly beginning to trust her, she learns he has been hiding a shocking secret. Ginny wonders if she can help Blue to feel whole again, and at the same time heal herself.
Danielle has always been an avid writer who wrote as a child and also during her late teens, completing her first manuscript at the age of 19. In 2002, Danielle was named an Officier of the Ordre des Arts et des Lettres by the French government for her contributions to world culture. However, this isn’t the only award she’s received. She has been given awards by the New York Presbyterian Hospital, Department of Psychiatry and Columbia University Medical School and Cornell Medical College, University of San Francisco Catholic Youth Organization and St. Mary's Medical Center, California Psychiatric Association, American Psychiatric Association and Larkin Street Youth Services with her work with the youth and mentally ill.
Danielle has been criticised by critics for writing “fluff” however over time her writing has evolved in many ways. She now delves into interesting and dark topics including incest, suicide, divorce and war. Her female characters have become more strong and resilient and now do not become caught up in receiving respect or attention from men. She takes more risks in her plots and now focuses on suspense rather than romance. Reading Danielle Steel is always a guaranteed good time.
