Sabrina Castro is a wealthy, attractive woman married to an older physician who no longer fulfills her dreams. An accidental misstep leads her down the path of moral disintegration.

Now on audio for the first time, A Shooting Star displays the storytelling powers that Wallace Stegner’s fans have enjoyed for more than half a century.

Stegner has given us so much better than this!

I'm finding it hard to believe that the same author who gave us Angle of Repose and Crossing to Safety wrote this novel. A Shooting Star is predictable, tedious and reads like a romance novel. I found the characters stereotypical and annoying. There was none of the emotional investment I have come to expect from Stegner. My advice? If you are new to Stegner, do not start with this book.
