Synopsis

A Perfect Life by Danielle Steel

An icon in the world of television news, Blaise McCarthy seems to have it all: beauty, intelligence and courage. But privately, there is a story she has protected for years...Blaise's daughter Salima, blinded by juvenile diabetes, now lives in a year-round boarding school with full-time assistance. When the school closes suddenly, Salima returns home to Blaise's New York apartment with her new carer, Simon. Simon rapidly shakes up their world, determined to help Salima find the independence she never thought possible. As all three face challenges that change the way they see one another, the bond between mother and daughter deepens as never before. Then Blaise's personal and professional worlds collide: a young rival at work attempts to take over and the well-guarded secrets of her home life are exposed. Suddenly her life is no longer perfect, but real. Can mother and daughter together learn how to face a world they can't control? This is an unforgettable novel about a mother and daughter losing control, trading perfect for real, and facing challenges in a suddenly brand-new world, from the incomparable storyteller Danielle Steel.
