In A Good Woman, Danielle Steel takes us from the glittering ballrooms of Manhattan to the fires of World War I in a spellbinding tale of love, loss, history and one woman’s unbreakable spirit.
At 19, Annabelle Worthington loses her father and brother to the dark icy seas that swallow the doomed Titanic. Her mother survives, succumbing a few years later to pneumonia, but not before encouraging Annabelle to marry Josiah Millbank, a man 20 years her senior. Josiah is handsome and kind—and indulgent when Annabelle speaks about her desire to study medicine. The one thing he lacks, to her young girl’s mind, is passion. But, she reasons, maybe she’s naïve in such matters. In truth, there are many things about life Annabelle is innocent of.
As her relationship hurtles toward scandal, she flees to war-ravaged France hoping to lose herself in a life of service. And it is there that this remarkable woman—this good woman—finds, against all the odds, the courage to pursue her dream. But will she ever experience a relationship the way she always thought it was meant to be? Never doubt Danielle Steel’s devotion to the wonder of the human heart and its capacity for healing, hope…and love.
