Fiction. Literature. Romance. HTML:Four sisters, a Manhattan brownstone, and a tumultuous year of loss and courage are at the heart of Danielle Steel’s new novel about a remarkable family, a stunning tragedy—and what happens when four very different young women come together under one very lively roof.
Twenty-one-year-old Candy is blazing her way through Paris, New York, and Tokyo as fashion’s latest international supermodel. Her sister Tammy, twenty-nine, has a job producing the most successful hit show on TV. In New York, oldest sister Sabrina, thirty-four, is an ambitious young lawyer, while Annie, at twenty-six, is an American in Florence, living for her art. One Fourth of July weekend, the four sisters come home to Connecticut for their family’s annual gathering. But before the holiday is over, tragedy strikes and their world is utterly changed. 
Suddenly, four sisters who have been fervently pursuing success and their own lives come together to share one New York brownstone, to support each other, and to pick up the pieces while one of them struggles to heal her shattered body and soul. A bustling house is soon filled with eccentric dogs, laughter, tears, friends, men . . . and the kind of honesty and unconditional love only sisters can provide. But as the four women settle in, they are forced to confront the direction of their respective lives.
With unerring insight and compassion, Danielle Steel tells a compelling story of sisters who are irrevocably woven into the fabric of one another’s lives. Brilliantly blending humor and heartbreak, she delivers a powerful message about the fragility—and the wonder—of life.

I really liked this book. Even though, being a male person, I was attached to this book as I have seen the joys of large families in my childhood. The proximity of the sister's makes reading a very nice book even though it has many tragic occurrences. Four sisters, each successful in their career options on their own path in life, return to their birthplace to enjoy the Fourth of July just as they do each year. Tragedy strikes and turns their lives upside down. Never again will this loving family be the same.
A book that was really a joy to read with some sad occurrences.

Sisters by Danielle Steel
When tragedy strikes the family and the mother is killed and one daughter is left blind the rest of the family rallies around one another.
The father is at a loss in his life and meets up with a woman his daughters ages and they are against it.
Blind woman must attend classes to learn how to live again and she meets many new friends.
The other sisters move in together to watch out for the blind one, giving up some of their lives til she's on her feet.
Loved hearing of the careers the girls have and what sacrifices they make. ( )

Back in high school, I used to read Danielle Steel's books one after another. Have moved on since then though. 'Sisters' has interesting characters and a good storyline but DS tends to repeat herself to prove her point. I love the beginning of the story when the characters were introduced, and the aftermath of the accident which was so heartbreaking. But I find that there were some story lines not fully developed as the story progresses. Maybe that's because DS concentrated the beginning part too much. The ending is a bit of a fairytale. Their father remarried and a baby is on the way, and all four sisters finally end up with their "ideal" men. Do I smell a sequel? ( )
