Product description

THE SUNDAY TIMES TOP TEN BESTSELLER. In her powerful memoir His Bright Light, Danielle Steel opened her heart to share the devastating story of the loss of her beloved son. In A Gift of Hope, she shows us how she transformed that pain into a campaign of service that enriched her life beyond what she could imagine. For eleven years, Danielle Steel took to the streets with a small team to help the homeless of San Francisco. She worked under cover of darkness distributing food, clothing, bedding, tools, and toiletries to the city's most vulnerable citizens. She sought no publicity for her efforts and remained anonymous throughout. Now she has chosen to tell her story to bring attention to their plight. In this unflinchingly honest and deeply moving memoir, the famously private author speaks out publicly for the first time about her work among the most desperate members of society. She offers achingly acute portraits of the people she met along the way--and issues a heartfelt call for more effective action to aid this vast, deprived population. Determined to supply the homeless with the basic necessities to keep them alive, she ends up giving them something far more powerful: a voice. By turns candid and inspirational, Danielle Steel's A Gift of Hope is a true act of advocacy and love.

Review quote

"A must read for all fans" Bella

Back cover copy

'In the beginning, on our first trips to the streets, we had stacks of jackets, sleeping bags, gloves, socks. . . . What we had to give was absorbed into doorways and alleys in about an hour. There were so many people in dire need that we could have given away hundreds of sleeping bags and jackets every night if we had them. Giving away forty or fifty of each was like emptying the ocean with a thimble. I have never felt so small and insignificant in my life.'
