Publisher's Summary

At eleven, Pip Mackenzie's young life has already been touched by tragedy; a terrible accident plunged her mother, Ophelie, into inconsolable grief. But on a foggy summer day, on a beach near San Francisco, Pip meets someone who fills her sad gray world with color and light. From the moment Pip walks up to his easel on the sand, artist Matt Bowles senses something magical: she reminds him of his own daughter before a bitter divorce tore his family apart. When Matt offers to teach the Pip to draw, Ophelie is, at first, hostile and wary of this newfound friendship. But Matt's steady kindness makes her realize how much joy he has brought into their lives, helping them to laugh again and to rediscover what they have lost. As this season of healing continues, Ophelie and Pip must leave the beach for the city, and Ophelie begins a volunteer outreach job for the homeless. Soul-sharing phone calls and autumn beach getaways deepen Ophelie and Matt's friendship, but fate strikes another blow. Out of the blue, Matt must confront unfinished business from his past, and Ophelie is struck by a stunning betrayal. As these events reverberate, something extraordinary happens. Out of the darkness that has shadowed them both comes an unexpected gift of hope.
With grace and compassion, Danielle Steel explores the fragile bonds between mothers and daughters, husbands and wives, family members and lifelong friends. Her haunting, impassioned novel takes us across the complex landscape of loss to the blessings that arise from even the darkest tragedies. At once a story of triumph and a moving elegy to those who suffer and survive, Safe Harbour is perhaps her most powerful and life-affirming novel to date.

Nice Story

A nice light book that flowed well and held my interest. Nothing major here, nothing too memorable, but touching none the less. A love story about a single mom and her young daughter who meet a man. He manages to save the day in every way for them and becomes the missing link in their lives. A very typical Steel novel.

First Time Listner

This was my first listen to a Steel book. I found her book enjoyable and an interesting listen. I would recommend it to most readers, if they are in the mood for a novel.
