Danielle Steel celebrates families of every stripe in her compelling novelâ€”a tale of three very different couples who struggle and survive, love, laugh, and learn to take life . . .
Coco Barrington was born into a legendary Hollywood family. Her mother, Florence, is a mega-bestselling author. Her sister, Jane, is one of Hollywoodâ€™s top producers and has lived with her partner, Liz, for ten years in a solid, loving relationship. Florence, widowed but still radiant, has just begun a secret romance with a man twenty-four years her junior. But Coco, a law-school dropout and the family black sheep, works as a dog walker, having fled life in the spotlight for an artsy Northern California beach town.
When Coco reluctantly agrees to house-sit for Jane, she discovers an unexpected houseguest: Leslie Baxter, a dashing but down-to-earth British actor whoâ€™s fleeing a psycho ex-girlfriend. Their worlds couldnâ€™t be more different. The attraction couldnâ€™t be more immediate. And as Coco contemplates a future with one of Hollywoodâ€™s hottest stars, as her mother and sister settle into their lives, old wounds are healed and new families are formedâ€”some traditional, some not so traditional, but all bonded by love.
With wit and intelligence, Danielle Steelâ€™s novel explores love in all its guises, taking us into the lives of three unusual but wonderfully real couples. Funny, sexy, and wise, One Day at a Time is at once moving, thought-provoking, and utterly impossible to put down.
