Accident by Danielle Steel

Accident is a powerful and ultimately triumphant novel of lives shattered and changed by one devastating moment.

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.

I just want to give this book its credit. I wasn't able to do it the first time, but I'm doing it now. This was the first book I read by Danielle Steel. And now after reading so many others and then coming back to the first I've read it's just as good the second time around. You can't go wrong with anything she writes. She includes humor with the sensitive and can have you crying and laughing all on the same page. You won't be disappointed!

this book made me cry, smile, laugh, and get angry. it is a very touching story about Page, her husband, Brad, and their children, Allyson and Andy. It starts off as Allie lieing to her mother about where is going and who she is going with. While out with her friends, Allie is involved in a tragic car accident. As Allie lays on a very thin line between life and death, Page feels her whole life fall apart in a matter of days. As she tries to find her find her husband to tell him about Allie's accident, he comes to realize that he is cheating on her. Just when Page thinks that her dying daughter and ending marriage is enough to deal with, Andy runs away and breaks his arm. Page knows that her life will never be the same again, but she's just not prepared for everything that happens.
