At 26, talented architect Annie Ferguson had a terrific career and a handsome boyfriend she believed was “the one.” Then a horrific accident made orphans of her older sister’s three children. There was never a question that Annie would bring them to live with her in Manhattan…or that she would raise them alone. And while 13 years later Annie has no regrets, lately, despite the demands of a highly successful business, she’s feeling the loneliness of an empty nest. Is it too late, she wonders, for love?
This moving novel explores how, in a challenging and unpredictable world, there’s one bond that always remains steadfast and true. Will Tom Jefferson, a television newscaster with whom Annie feels a powerful connection, be willing to stand by her side to pick up the pieces when Ted, now a law student, gets involved with an older woman who becomes dangerously obsessive…when fashion stylist Liz learns her French lover’s real character…or when free spirit Katie, the youngest, falls in love with a boy whose faith proves problematic?
Just when you think Danielle Steel couldn’t get any better, she writes another tour de force. Family Ties is the beloved author at her remarkable best.

I have been reading Danielle Steel for years. Have enjoyed most of her books. this one however, was not one of the better ones. The story was good, but it lacked something. It felt like a made for tv movie. Not one of her better books.

Good story line. But so much dirty language from children, not adults (which is bad enough). Really dissapointed in the bad language.

I have read all of Daniele Steele's books, each time I read one I say this will be my last. The premise of this story is good, however, the story just keeps repeating itself...ugh!!! This may be the last book of hers I read.
Although the storyline is interesting, the writing is horrible. How many times can the word "AND" be used? I have never read a book where 4 out of 5 sentences start with AND. So repetitive.
I have jsut finished this book and it is true to Danielle Steele she has on the edge of the bed seat or wherever you read she holds you in capitivation and hard to put down one of her best.
