From Publishers Weekly
Four stunningly beautiful Connecticut-bred sisters pursue their disparate careers in prolific Steel's (H.R.H.
) latest. There's Candy, 21, a supermodel with an eating disorder, on location in Paris; Annie, 26, a RISD-grad studying painting in Florence; Tammy, at 29 an L.A. TV producer with a new hit and no life; and Sabrina, 34, a workaholic, commitment-phobic family attorney. No matter what, all meet at Mommy and Daddy's for July 4, Thanksgiving and Christmas. During one of the reunions, a disastrous car accident kills their beautiful, dutiful mother and leaves artist Annie blind. Sabrina comes up with a plan for the sisters to live ensemble
in a New York brownstone, so that they might grieve and ease Annie's transition into the sightless world. The questions then become Will Candy eat? Will Sabrina commit? Will Tammy have a hit? Will Annie transition? And will Dad love again? Legions of fans expect an emphatic yes, and they won't be disappointed. But they can also expect decapitation, rape and emotional betrayal, which work like little shocks to keep pages turning. (Feb.)

From the Back Cover
Four sisters, a Manhattan brownstone and a tumultuous year of loss and courage
Candy is blazing her way through Paris, New York and Tokyo as fashion's latest international supermodel. Tammy has a job producing the most successful hit show on TV, and a home she loves in Hollywood. Sabrina, the eldest, is an ambitious young lawyer in New York. Annie lives in Florence, devoted only to her art. On one Fourth of July weekend, as they do every year, the four sisters come home to Connecticut for their family's annual gathering. But before the holiday is over, tragedy strikes and their world is utterly changed. Suddenly, they need to support each other and their father, and to pick up the pieces while one sister struggles to heal her shattered body and soul. The year passes and another Fourth of July approaches - a season of grief and change gives way to new beginnings as the family comes together to savour its blessings and a future filled with unexpected gifts, surprises and, ultimately, hope.
