Product Description

Book Description

One woman's struggle to break free from the past - and the man who helps her triumph --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

From the Back Cover

Danielle Steel's fifty-sixth bestselling novel is about family and friendship, about one woman's struggle to break free from the past - and the man who helps her triumph. And most of all, it is about daring to believe in.

ANSWERED PRAYERS

On the outside, Faith Madison is the very picture of a sophisticated New Yorker. Slim, blond, stylish, Faith has a life many would envy. Overcoming a childhood marked by tragedy, married to a successful investment banker and having raised two grown daughters, Faith has enjoyed her role as mother and wife, and the good life that emanates from their bustling Manhattan townhouse. But every step of the way, Faith has carried within her a secret she could divulge to no one. And with it, she has kept an even more painful secret from herself.

For Faith, it is the sudden death of her stepfather - a man who, like her husband Alex, always remained just beyond her reach - that will touch off a journey of change and revelation. At the funeral, painful memories flood back - and an old friend re-enters Faith's life. Faith is greeting mourners when she hears a voice behind her and a single word that brings a quick smile to her face: "Fred." Only one person, aside from her older brother, Jack, called her that. Brad Patterson was Jack's best friend, a long, lanky boy who teased, tormented, and protected Faith when they fancied themselves "The Three Musketeers" as kids. When Jack died years later, Faith and Brad came together again in their common, inconsolable grief, then lost touch once more amid the demands of families and busy lives a continent apart.

Now a lawyer in California, Brad has re-entered Faith's life just as she is making a decision that plunges her marriage into crisis. Determined to fulfill a long-held desire for a career of her own, Faith applies to law school against her husband's wishes, igniting a barrage of anger and recrimination. Faith's only solace is the correspondence she has begun with Brad, a man trapped in an empty marriage of his own, a friend she once lost and has found again. Soon emails are flying between them, bridging 3000 miles, sharing much-needed friendship, support, laughter. And as these two childhood friends rediscover each other, something extraordinary is beginning to happen. In the safety of their friendship, Brad will find the courage to make a decision he should have made years before. And Faith, too, is changing, beginning to believe in herself - and in her right to grab hold of her dreams. Gathering a strength she never knew she had, Faith is finally ready to face the most painful step of all: of sharing the secret that has long been haunting her, and truly opening up her heart for the first time in her life.

With unerring insight into the hearts of husbands and wives, lovers and families, Danielle Steel tells a wise and moving story of the secrets that wound and the choices that heal - and of the second chances that come only once in a lifetime. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: Audio CD
Veteran voice performer Ron McLarty is well known to audio book aficionados who relish his stellar and empathetic performances. He delivers again with mega hit writer Danielle Steel's latest, one more foray into dreams come true.
Faith Madison is an attractive Manhattan housewife, wed to an affluent banker, and thus the recipient of all the accouterments of his success. She has two grown daughters who now lead their own lives. While her marriage may not be the intimate, sharing relationship that she might wish Faith has much for which to be grateful.
The death of her stepfather brings her face to face with a long held desire and an old friend, Brad Patterson. He had been her late brother's best pal, and a source of comfort when her brother died. The two have been out of touch for years. Yet, they find they have one more common bond as Brad, too, is in a less than satisfactory marriage.
A death and seeing Brad again form a turning point in Faith's life as despite her husband's objections she applies for admission to law school. Her bulwark of strength in this endeavor is once again Brad.
Each of them will eventually make some painful and life altering decisions. With this story as with others, Danielle Steel reminds us that life is a path marked by twists and turns. Which way to go? The choice is ours.

Format: Hardcover
Answered Prayers is a beautifully written story about a woman's unstinting love for a husband who is a control freak but who feels its OK to take another woman into their bed.
He then taints one of his daughters mind against their mum saying she had asked for a divorce.
Tenderly written story helping me to understand that it's not just my children who cause heartache.

By Mrs. A. M. Chadwick on 5 Jun. 2007

This isn't a good book at all, and if you've never read any of Danielle Steels before, start on her older ones,(have a look at my reviews and they should help you to decide).

I have noticed that not all of her novels after 2000 are always great; it seems to be hit and miss this wasn't one of her best, and I've read a lot better.

I'm been really disappointed with this one, even her style of writing has altered over the last couple of years and it's not good. Maybe she's losing the flame she had within that burned so bright for her older stories. :-(

I really enjoyed this book. It had a great story -line and I would fully recommend it to anyone who likes a grittier story-line than some basic romances have.
