In Danielle Steel’s powerful new novel, four trauma doctors—the best and brightest in their field—confront exciting new challenges, both personally and professionally, when given a rare opportunity.



Bill Browning heads the trauma unit at San Francisco’s busiest emergency room, SF General. With his ex-wife and daughters in London, he immerses himself in his work and lives for his rare visits with his children. A rising star at her teaching hospital, UCSF at Mission Bay, Stephanie Lawrence has two young sons, a frustrated stay-at-home husband, and not enough time for any of them. Harvard-educated Wendy Jones is a dedicated trauma doctor at Stanford, trapped in a dead-end relationship with a married cardiac surgeon. And Tom Wylie’s popularity with women rivals the superb medical skills he employs at his Oakland medical center, but he refuses to let anyone get too close, determined to remain unattached forever.

These exceptional doctors are chosen for an honor and a unique project: to work with their counterparts in Paris in a mass-casualty training program. As professionals, they will gain invaluable knowledge from the program. As ordinary men and women, they will find that the City of Light opens up incredible new possibilities, exhilarating, enticing, and frightening.

When an unspeakable act of mass violence galvanizes them into action, their temporary life in Paris becomes a stark turning point: a time to face harder choices than they have ever made before—with consequences that will last a lifetime.

Story Locale: San Francisco and Paris

DANIELLE STEEL CONTINUES TO DEMONSTRATE HER REMARKABLE RANGE with a trio of irresistible, diverse novels to close out 2018 and jump-start the new year. In His Father’s Footsteps is the unforgettable, sweeping saga of three generations of a successful immigrant family, stretching from post-World War II New York to the present. Beauchamp Hall is perfect for the holidays, a delightful novel about a young American woman who finds love and fulfillment in the course of her involvement with a Downton Abbey-style TV show in England. A fast-moving, dramatic ensemble story, Turning Point follows four top San Francisco trauma doctors through a trans-Atlantic exchange program with four Parisian counterparts and a multitude of crises in both countries.

#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER: Steel continues to secure top rankings on the New York Times, USA Today, Publishers Weekly and Wall Street Journal bestseller lists. She led off 2017 with back-to-back #1 New York Times hardcover bestsellers (The Mistress and Dangerous Games), which held the top spot for multiple weeks, and every one of her 2017 hardcover releases so far has been a top 5 New York Times hardcover bestseller (Against All Odds #3, The Duchess #4, The Right Time #3). Fairytale (10/10/17) and Past Perfect (11/28/17) are coming on strong, with robust sales and preorder momentum.
