Four sisters, a Manhattan brownstone, and a tumultuous year of loss and courage are at the heart of Danielle Steel’s new novel about a remarkable family, a stunning tragedy—and what happens when four very different young women come together under one very lively roof. Candy–it’s the only name she needs—is blazing her way through Paris, New York, and Tokyo as fashion’s latest international supermodel. . . . Her sister Tammy has a job producing the most successful hit show on TV, and a home she loves in L.A.’s Hollywood Hills. . . . In New York, oldest sister Sabrina is an ambitious young lawyer, while Annie is an American artist in Florence, living for her art. . . . On one Fourth of July weekend, as they do every year, the four sisters come home to Connecticut for their family’s annual gathering. But before the holiday is over, tragedy strikes and their world is utterly changed. Suddenly, four sisters who have been fervently pursuing success and their own lives—on opposite sides of the world—reunite to share one New York brownstone, to support each other and their father, and to pick up the pieces while one sister struggles to heal her shattered body and soul. Thus begins an unscripted chapter of their lives, as a bustling house is soon filled with eccentric dogs, laughter, tears, friends, men . . . and the kind of honesty and unconditional love only sisters can provide. But as the four women settle in, they are forced to confront the direction of their respective lives. As the year passes and another July Fourth approaches, a season of grief and change gives way to new beginnings—as a family comes together to share its blessings and a future filled with surprises and, ultimately, hope. With unerring insight and compassion, Danielle Steel tells a compelling story of four sisters who love and laugh, struggle and triumph . . . and are irrevocably woven into the fabric of each other’s lives. Brilliantly blending humor and heartbreak, she delivers a powerful message about the fragility—and the wonder—of life.

Back in high school, I used to read Danielle Steel's books one after another. Have moved on since then though. 'Sisters' has interesting characters and a good storyline but DS tends to repeat herself to prove her point. I love the beginning of the story when the characters were introduced, and the aftermath of the accident which was so heartbreaking. But I find that there were some story lines not fully developed as the story progresses. Maybe that's because DS concentrated the beginning part too much. The ending is a bit of a fairytale. Their father remarried and a baby is on the way, and all four sisters finally end up with their "ideal" men. Do I smell a sequel?

I bought this book while on vacation (the gift shop didn't have too many options). I've read several Steel books before - Jewels, Zoya, etc. - and loved them. With Sisters, I feel like Steel is losing her touch. The book was too predictable, characters too perfect and hard to associate with, the writing not compelling, etc. I couldn't even force myself to get to the end, and I rarely ever stop in the middle.One detail that annoyed me from the very beginning was Steel's description of the family. How realistic is it from a dad with blond hair and mom with red hair to have 4 daughters, and each of those daughters to have a different hair color? One blond, one red, one brown and one jet black? Perhaps it's a minor detail, but things like this turn me off from the book.

A story of a family whose life is changed for ever. Like all of her books its a great read. I really wanted to read this because I come a huge family of sisters. Its a really heartwarming story of loss,survival and how to heal and move on with your life. It touched me in so many ways. I've had a similar situation happen to me and at times it was hard to even read this book.

Good story, didn't like the ending, not enough "closure" on a few storylines... sure leaves room for a sequel.

One Fourth of July weekend four sisters, Candy, Tammy, Annie and Sabrina, come home to Connecticut for their family's annual gathering. But before the holiday is over, tragedy strikes and their world is utterly changed. Suddenly, four sisters who have been fervently pursuing success and their own lives, come together to share one New York brownstone, to support each other, and to pick up the pieces while one sister struggles to heal her shattered body and soul. But as the four women settle in, each is forced to confront the direction of their respective lives.I love to read Danielle Steel's novels. They are always about something you can connect to. It's wonderful to see how 4 sister's have such a strong bond to one another that they would do this for one of them. Unfortunately, my own family is very disfunctional, but I hope we would come together like this family did. I highly recommend this book.

This book rambles, repeats itself. Irritating treatment of men and sibling relationships.
