Fernanda Barnes lives in the lap of luxury until her world crashes down around her following the death of her husband. She has no idea how she will raise her three children alone, while facing the financial disaster that her husband left behind.

Peter Morgan and Carl Waters are both released from prison on the same day. Peter, who served just over four years on a drug charge, is determined to stay clean and sober so that he can see his daughters again. Carl Waters served twenty-four years for murders he insists he did not commit. While the duo did not hang out together in prison, they will soon connect in the outside world.

Ted Lee has lived in a loveless marriage for many years. He cares about his wife but their relationship is more one of companionship than passion. He works the swing shift and she works first shift, a tolerable situation for two people who don't have strong emotions for each other. In a short time, the lives of these four people will be connected by a horrifying crime. And in a race to save a little boy's life, Ted will find himself admiring the strength that Fernanda displays.

This is a fast paced suspense novel that captures your attention with gripping feelings of fear for Fernanda. I was on the edge of my seat waiting for the ending. Danielle Steel does it again with a story of strength, courage and love, that shows us how strangers can pull together to help one another. Ransom is a must have for the beach tote this summer.
