Description

Although frequent business meetings keep her husband, Brad, away from home, Page Clarke feels blessed with her happy family and comfortable marriage. They have a house near San Francisco and she keeps busy looking after their seven-year-old son, Andy, and their teenage daughter, Allyson. Allyson, at fifteen, is trying her wings and one weekend, instead of an evening with her friend Chloe, the girls lie and go out with two older high school boys. But a Saturday night that was supposed to be fun ends in tragedy when their car collides head-on with another. At the hospital, Page finds Chloe's divorced father, Trygve, and, unable to locate Brad, she leans on his strength throughout the the long hours of tormenting questions. Will Allyson live? Will any of them? Were the teenagers drinking? Using drugs? Who was at fault? And where is her husband? Without Brad by her side Page feels her life start to come apart as she is forced to confront the fact that Allyson may not live, and if she does, she may never be the same again. In an inspiring novel that explores how many people are affected by one tragic accident and how they survive it, Danielle Steel brings us close to the characters whose lives are as familiar as our own...and who live, as we all do, in a world where everything can change in a single moment.show more

Back cover copy

Accident, Danielle Steel's thirty-second bestselling work, is the powerful and ultimately triumphant tale of families shattered and lives changed in a single, devastating moment. Page Clark is a good mother, busy taking her seven-year-old son, Andy, to his baseball games and keeping careful watch over her fifteen-year-old daughter, Allyson. Page's husband Brad is busy, too, with meetings that often take him away from their suburban San Francisco home. But overall Page feels blessed with her happy family and comfortable marriage - until on Saturday night when everything falls apart. Brad has unexpectedly left on an out-of-town trip, and Allyson announces that she is going out with her best friend Chloe and Chloe's father, Trygve. But instead, Allyson and Chloe go out with two older high-school boys in a borrowed car, and in one terrifying instant their car collides head-on with another. Page is alone, tormented by questions. Finding Trygve already at the hospital, she leans on his strength throughout the long hours of waiting, when she is forced to confront the fact that Allyson may not live, and if she does she may never be the same again. Accident is the story of lives changed and people of remarkable courage. In an inspiring novel, Danielle Steel brings us close to characters whose lives are as familiar as our own...and who live, as we all do, in a world where everything can change in a single moment.show more
