On a warm May night in San Francisco, the Ritz-Carlton ballroom shimmers with crystal and silver as a glittering, celebrity-studded crowd gathers for a charity dinner dance. The evening is perfect--until, just minutes before midnight, the room begins to sway. Glass shatters. And as the lights go out, people begin to scream.... In the earthquake's aftermath, the lives of four strangers will converge.... Sarah Sloane, the beautiful wife of a financial whiz, watches her perfect world fall to pieces.... Grammy-winning singer Melanie Free, the event's headliner, comes to a turning point in her life and career.... Photographer Everett Carson, a former war correspondent whose personal demons have demoted him to covering society parties, finds new purpose amid the carnage...and Sister Maggie Kent, a nun who normally works in jeans and high-tops with the homeless, searches through the rubble--and knows instantly that there is much work to be done.... As the city staggers back to life, a chain reaction of extraordinary events will touch each of the survivors.... For Sarah, it begins with the discovery of a crime and a betrayal, then a strength she never knew she had. For Melanie, volunteering at a refugee camp will open new worlds of possibility. And Everett will be shaken by the unlikely relationship he forges with Maggie, who helps him rebuild his shattered life--and upends her own in the process. But as a year passes, and the anniversary of the earthquake approaches, more surprises are in store--as each discovers the unexpected gifts in a tragedy's wake...and the amazing grace of new beginnings.… (lisätietoja)

This is one of my least favorite novels by Danielle Steel. Usually I read them very fast and one I start reading I cannot stop, but it took me several attempts to finish reading of this book. The plot was promising, but probably because of too many main characters it didn't deliver the usual psychological depth I find in other Steel's novels. ( )

Earthquake !!! During a Hospital fundraising event with the famous, young pop star Melanie Free. In the after math Melanie joined with a nun, (Sister Maggie Kent), a world class photographer (Everett Carson) and others to help get everyone to safety. Reuniting hours later in the local shelter to help tend the hurt and comfort the shaken. During it all, Melanie learned a few things about herself, her best friend and her boyfriend. Becoming friends with a nun and helping was just what she needed to see her life and change her life. While Sarah Sloane and her husband Seth had their own life change happening, they had organized the evenings events but their own lives were about to take make a drastic change of their own. With Sister Mary as a new friend to them all, her life couldn’t help but change as well.

While the earthquake provided the starting point for these people to come together, it also points to their different walks of life while getting to be the best of friends. The story is was sweet, a little predictable, at times it is slow and mundane. There seem to be too many story lines thrown together. Wish that Danielle Steel had left Sarah and Seth story out and spent more time with Sister Maggie and Everett. I sometimes wonder why authors do that, too many tangents and side stories have a tendency to distract from a really good story, not enhance it. Still a good distraction from real life. ( )

This story kind of confused me in all honesty in regards to the plot. I thought the majority of the story was going to be based on the earthquake and it ended up being about the aftermath for the majority of the novel. I felt like the characters were a huge random mess of people that would never be together and kinda found the story in my opinion to seem thrown together and scrambeled.

I mean a nun and a recovering alcoholic; a superstar and an average college grad, it just seemed far fetched to me, and that the relatability between the characters were very unlikely.

It wasn't a horrible book, but at the same time in my opinion was very weak in contrast to some of the other Danielle Steel novels that I have read, this one just fell flat and didn't really do anything for me unfortantally. ( )

Info su: http://www.librinews.com/2010/01/30/unaffascinante-galleria-di-personaggi-e-situ...

In libreria dal 2 febbraio per i tipi Sperling & Kupfer, una storia che parla di destino, perdono e difficoltà superate, e che porta con sé un vibrante messaggio di speranza. Nelle toccanti e intense pagine di ‘Una grazia infinita’ (Amazing Grace), Danielle Steel mette in scena, con l’insuperabile maestria che la caratterizza, un’affascinante galleria di personaggi e una serie di situazioni dai forti contrasti.

Dalla vita viziata delle rock star, agli atti d’eroismo dei volontari, Danielle Steel ci regala un’opera in sintonia con l’attualità dei nostri giorni, ambientando il romanzo a San Francisco in una calda notte di maggio, durante un terremoto. La Steel, diventata una leggenda più dei suoi stessi libri (che non mancano mai di entrare nelle prime posizioni delle classifiche di vendita), in questo romanzo propone la storia di quattro personaggi principali, caratterizzandone, come solo i grandi scrittori possono fare, sentimenti e azioni.

Così, tra le sue pennellate narrative, troveremo Sarah Sloane, moglie di un mago della finanza, che guarda tutto il suo mondo cadere a pezzi. E la cantante Melanie Free, ritratta durante il punto di svolta nella sua vita e nella sua carriera. Everett Carson, fotoreporter alcolizzato, che troverà nuovi spunti per il suo obiettivo proprio in mezzo alla carneficina e Suor Maggie Kent, una suora che lavora con i senzatetto, che si muove tra le macerie alla ricerca di qualcuno da salvare.
