image - book coverThe Worthington family is at the top of Fifth Avenue and New Port society.

Annabelle Worthington was born in to this family and enjoyed a life of privilege,  all this changes on a cold April day in 1912 with the sinking of the Titanic.

On board were her father, mother and brother – only her mother survives.

Coping with grief she throws herself in to volunteer work nursing the poor, developing a passion for nursing.

Annabelle accepts a marriage proposal which brings her more grief and later a scandal which she does not deserve.

Annabelle flees to France where World War 1 is raging.

There her strength shines through even though her reputation is unfairly destroyed.

This Danielle Steel novel of the early twentieth century shows the plight of women in high society prior to World War 1.

This novel was one of the better books I have read by Danielle Steel and I could not put it down.
