Olivia spends months every year planning a lavish holiday that everyone in her family will enjoy. This summer she has arranged a dream trip on a luxurious Mediterranean yacht, which she hopes will be the most memorable of all. More than anything, she hopes to express her love and her regret at all the time she was away during her children’s younger years. But her younger daughter, Cassie, a hip London music producer, refuses the invitation altogether. Her older daughter Liz is preoccupied with a chance to recapture her dream of being a writer. And her sons John and Phillip are completely wrapped up in their marriages – one for the better, one for the worse. Immersed in the splendor of the Riviera, this should have been a summer to remember, but Olivia returns home to a family divided, with grudges festering and secrets kept guarded.

As each of these individuals confront their truths they also learn to accept the enduring, unconditional love of their family – and a mother who is strong enough to take more than her fair share of the blame, as long as she can count the blessings that come, too.

Danielle Steel

Danielle Steel is an internationally best-selling author of over fifty romance novels. Since publishing her first book in 1973, Steel has acquired an enormous following of loyal, avid readers.

Steel was born on August 14, 1947, in New York City, the only child of John Schuelein-Steel, a member of Munich's wealthy Lowenbrau beer family, and Norma Schuelein-Steel, an international beauty from Portugal. Steel's parents divorced when she was seven or eight years old. Afterwards, she was raised by relatives and servants in Paris and New York. She graduated from the Lycee Francais when she was not quite fifteen and in 1963 entered New York's Parsons School of Design. However, she soon abandoned her dream of becoming "the new Chanel" when the pressure to succeed caused her to develop a stomach ulcer. She then enrolled at New York University, where she studied until 1967. When she was eighteen, Steel married her first husband, a French banker with homes in New York, San Francisco, and Paris.
