On a warm May night in San Francisco, the Ritz-Carlton ballroom shimmers with crystal and silver as a glittering, celebrity-studded crowd gathers for a charity dinner dance. The evening is perfect until, just minutes before midnight, the room begins to sway. Glass shatters. And as the lights go out, people begin to scream.

In the earthquake s aftermath, the lives of four strangers will converge. Sarah Sloane, the beautiful wife of a financial whiz, watches her perfect world fall to pieces. Grammy-winning singer Melanie Free, the event s headliner, comes to a turning point in her life and career . Photographer Everett Carson, a former war correspondent whose personal demons have demoted him to covering society parties, finds new purpose amid the carnage and Sister Maggie Kent, a nun who normally works in jeans and high-tops with the homeless, searches through the rubble and knows instantly that there is much work to be done.

As the city staggers back to life, a chain reaction of extraordinary events will touch each of the survivors. For Sarah, it begins with the discovery of a crime and a betrayal, then a strength she never knew she had. For Melanie, volunteering at a refugee camp will open new worlds of possibility. And Everett will be shaken by the unlikely relationship he forges with Maggie, who helps him rebuild his shattered life and upends her own in the process. But as a year passes, and the anniversary of the earthquake approaches, more surprises are in store as each discovers the unexpected gifts in a tragedy s wake and the amazing grace of new beginnings.

I guess I'm lucky that I've only recently begun to listen to Danielle Steel's audio books. I find myself getting involved with all her characters (especially the many with long red hair and green eyes). I still see each story as unique and have loved them all.

The story is interesting, but the writing often repetitive. I found myself thinking, “She already said that” numerous times. The narrator seemed really dry in tone. Other narrators develop different voices for the characters, but except for the photographer, these are sounded the same. And why does he have a southern twang if he’s from Montana? Maybe it’s supposed to be a ranch drawl. I endured 5½ of the 8 CDs before giving up.
