Taking chances is part of life, but when you bet your future against the odds, it's a high-risk game. Kate Madison's stylish resale shop has been a big SoHo success, supporting her and her four kids since her husband's untimely death. Now they are grown and ready to forge lives of their own. And they all choose to play against the odds, to their mother's dismay. Isabelle, a dedicated attorney, is in line to make partner at her Wall Street firm when she falls for a client she represents in a criminal case. She tells herself she can make a life with him -- but can she? Julie, a young designer, meets a man who seems too good to be true and falls under his spell. She marries him quickly, gives up her job, and moves to Los Angeles to be at his side -- but is all what it seems? Justin is a struggling writer who pushes for children with his partner before they're financially or emotionally ready. Will the strain on the relationship take too high a toll? And Willie, the youngest, a tech expert, makes a choice that shocks them all, with a woman twelve years older. Kate -- loving, supportive, and outspoken -- can't keep her children from playing against the odds. Can the odds be beaten? Not often -- as her children have to learn for themselves. For Kate, the hardest lesson will be that she can't protect the children she loves from the choices they make -- but can only love them as they make them.… (més)

Every now and again, you get a first novel that has so many different issues included that you want to tell the author to leave a few for next time, relax, you can write, there will be another book. This book has that sort of feel to it. Steel is not a new writer, but perhaps she feels that her time is limited, and she still has all these ideas she wants to use? My advice is still to relax and take one or two ideas at a time.

Most of the story lines got sewn up in the expected manner(s). Like most of DS's characters, they moved in circles too rich for most of us. In fact many of their difficulties wouldn't have happened if they didn't move there. Of course, the money also made it possible to survive the difficulties a lot more easily than we could.

I think a good editor would have told her to split this up into several books. But as often happens with established authors, they know a book with her name on the cover is going to sell, so they don't bother. ( )

Another good novel by Danielle Steel. However, it is hard to believe that so many things could happen to just one family. ( )

I always enjoy a story with a happy ending and this novel did not disappoint. It shares the same hallmarks of a DS novel with a strong feminine character who overcomes hardships in her life with style and class and usually ends up wealthy in the end. The supporting characters in this novel made it more fascinating to me. The dynamic between the character and her children was both interesting and infuriating at the same time. Waiting to see what sort of interactions and reactions they had with each other was what helped me stay completely engrossed in the novel. ( )
