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.

Hard to Care for Poor Little Rich Woman.
This is the first book by Wallace Stegner that I was happy to be done with so I could move on to something better. Wallace had a tough sell to make the reader care about the problems of a spoiled rich woman, and I imagine a lot of readers like myself won't find enough character or substance to hang their hat on. I love Wallace Stegner's writing, but in this case, he chose the wrong subject matter. I highly recommend his other works.
