Overview

Desde las lujosas salas de baile de Manhattan hasta las batallas de la Primera Guerra Mundial, Danielle Steel nos transporta al mundo fascinante de una mujer de espíritu indómita que saca fuerzas de sus pérdidas y renace en medio de la adversidad.

Annabelle Wirthington, de diecinueve años, nació rodeada de los privilegios y el glamour de la alta sociedad neoyorquina en una gran casa de la Quinta Avenida. Sin embargo, un día grisáceo de abril de 1912 todo cambió: el Titanic se hundió y su mundo también. Para olvidarse de sus tristezas, Annabelle se entrega a obras caritativas y a cuidar a los pobres y aquí se despierta su pasión por la medicina.
Cuando su primer amor y lo que promete ser un matrimonio idílico también se convierten en cenizas, Annabelle se ve obligada a huir a Francia, un país en guerra donde tal vez podrá por no dedicarse a su verdadera vocación: estudiar medicina, ayudar a los heridos y salvar vidas en la primera línea de batalla.
Cuando termina la guerra, Annabelle comienza una nueva vida en París. Ahora es doctora y madre y su pasado en Nueva York queda lejos y casi olvidado hasta que un día un encuentro casual la enfrenta con todo lo que dejó atrás.

Meet the Author

Danielle Steel es sin duda una de las novelistas más populares en todo el mundo. Sus libros se han publicado en cuarenta y siete países, con ventas que superan los quinientos ochenta millones de ejemplares. Cada uno de sus lanzamientos ha encabezado las listas de bestsellers de The New York Times, y muchos de ellos se han mantenido en esta posición durante meses.

Biography

When it comes to commanding bestseller lists, no writer can come close to Danielle Steel. Her work has been published in 47 countries, in 28 languages. She has been listed in the Guinness Book of World Records as the author who has spent the most consecutive weeks on The New York Times bestseller list. She has not only published novels, but has written non-fiction, a book of poetry, and two series of children's books. Many of her books have been adapted for television movies, one of which (Jewels) was nominated for two Golden Globe awards. She has received the title of Chevalier of the distinguished Order of Arts and Letters by the French Government for her immense body of work. In short, to say that Steel is the single most popular living writer in the world is no overstatement.

Steel published her first novel, Going Home, when she was a mere 26 years old, and the book introduced readers to many of the themes that would dominate her novels for the next 30-odd years. It is an exploration of human relationships told dramatically, a story of the past's thrall on the present. Anyone familiar with Steel's work will recognize these themes as being close to her heart, as are familial issues, which are at the root of her many mega-sellers.

Although Steel has a reputation among critics as being a writer of fluffy, escapist fare, she never shies away from taking on dark subject matter, having addressed illnesses, incest, suicide, divorce, death, the Holocaust, and war in her work. Of course, even when she is handling unsavory topics, she does so entertainingly and with refinement. Her stories may often cross over into the realm of melodrama, but she never fails to spin a compelling yarn told with a skilled ear for dialogue and character, while consistently showing how one can overcome the greatest of tragedies. Ever prolific, she usually produces several books per year, often juggling multiple projects at the same time.

With all of the time and effort Steel puts into her work (she claims to sometimes spend as much as 20 hours a day at her keyboard), it is amazing that she still has time for a personal life. However, as one might assume from her work, family is still incredibly important to her, and she maintains a fairly private personal life. Fortunately for her millions of fans, she continues to devote more than a small piece of that life to them.

Good To Know

Along with her famed adult novels, Steel has also written two series of books for kids with the purpose of helping them through difficult situations, such as dealing with a new stepfather and coping with the death of a grandparent.

When Steel isn't working on her latest bestseller or spending time with her beloved family, she is devoting her time to one of several philanthropic projects to benefit the mentally ill, the homeless, and abused children.
