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.

Wow! This book was a great book! It is certainly different from other books I've read from DS but I must admit it was better than I anticipated. 🙂
This book gave me all the feels, anger, sadness, happiness, love. I was so immersed in the story that before I knew I had already read a lot of pages. Before starting this book I was however, a little afraid because of the writing font. It is quite small and I'm not going to lie, I am not a fan of small writing especially in books like these. That certainly won't stop from diving right into the story because it was good and I am not going to not read books like these just because of the writing that's not what its all about, it the story not the writing style or font, it is whether or not you like it story. I am super glad I read this book. I have no regrets and you should read it too. 🙂
Tradgic accident with 1 teenager dead. 1 legs crushed, 1 in coma. We get endless ICU, hospital scenes. We get super Saint Mom. Author has too much money to not realize it should have followed the normal. Lawyers would step in to go after wife of Senator who had repeat DUI episodes. No never even thought of. Really? How boring feelings of average? Saint Mom? Not realistic. Boring...
