#1 New York Times bestselling author Danielle Steel tells the uplifting story of an ordinary woman embracing an extraordinary adventure, and the daring choice that transforms her world.

Winona Farmington once dreamed of graduating from college, moving to New York City, and pursuing a career in publishing. Then real life got in the way when she left college and returned to her small Michigan hometown to care for her sick mother.

Years later, stuck in a dead-end job and an unsatisfying relationship, Winnie has concluded that dreams were meant for others. She consoles herself with binge-watching the British television series that she loves, Beauchamp Hall, enthralled by the sumptuous period drama set on a great Norfolk estate in the 1920s. The rich upstairs-downstairs world brilliantly brought to life by superb actors is the ultimate in escapism.   

On the day Winnie is passed over for a long-overdue promotion, she is also betrayed by her boyfriend and her best friend. Heartbroken, she makes the first impulsive decision of her conventional life—which changes everything.
She packs her bags and flies to England to see the town where Beauchamp Hall is filmed. The quaint B & B where she stays feels like home. The brother and sister who live in the castle where the show is filmed, rich in titles but poor in cash, are more like long-lost friends than British nobility. And the show itself, with its colorful company and behind-the-scenes affairs, is a drama all its own. Winnie’s world comes alive on the set of the show.

What happens next is the stuff of dreams, as Winnie takes the boldest leap of all.  Beauchamp Hall reminds us to follow our dreams. . . . You never know what magic will happen!
In Danielle Steel’s powerful new novel, four trauma doctors—the best and brightest in their field—confront exciting new challenges, both personally and professionally, when given an unusual opportunity.
 
Bill Browning heads the trauma unit at San Francisco’s busiest emergency room, SF General. With his ex-wife and daughters in London, he immerses himself in his work and lives for rare visits with his children. A rising star at her teaching hospital, UCSF at Mission Bay, Stephanie Lawrence has two young sons, a frustrated stay-at-home husband, and not enough time for any of them. Harvard-educated Wendy Jones is a dedicated trauma doctor at Stanford, trapped in a dead-end relationship with a married cardiac surgeon. And Tom Wylie’s popularity with women rivals the superb medical skills he employs at his Oakland medical center, but he refuses to let anyone get too close, determined to remain unattached forever.
 
These exceptional doctors are chosen for an honor and a unique project: to work with their counterparts in Paris in a mass-casualty training program. As professionals, they will gain invaluable knowledge from the program. As ordinary men and women, they will find that the City of Light opens up incredible new possibilities, exhilarating, enticing, and frightening.
 
When an unspeakable act of mass violence galvanizes them into action, their temporary life in Paris becomes a stark turning point: a time to face harder choices than they have ever made before—with consequences that will last a lifetime.

Cuatro venganzas. Cuatro castigos. Cuatro novelas cortas sumamente sorprendentes y enormemente impactantes. No las podrás olvidar.

«Creo que existe otro hombre dentro de cada hombre, un extraño...» son palabras de la confesión que escribe Wilfred Leland James en «1922», el primer relato de este cuarteto hipnotizador y profundamente oscuro. El ser desconocido que James lleva dentro se despierta cuando su esposa Arlette le anuncia que piensa vender el terreno que acaba de heredar y que va a trasladarse a la ciudad. Sus palabras le empujan hacia el asesinato y la locura.

En «Camionero grande» Tess, una escritora de novelas simpáticas de intriga, se encuentra con un hombre gigantesco cuando vuelve a casa por una carretera rural después de dar una charla en un club de lectura. Violada y abandonada tras ser dada por muerta, Tess planea su venganza y para llevarla a cabo tendrá que sacar de sí misma un lado totalmente desconocido.

«Una extensión justa», el relato más corto, es el más malvado y el más divertido. Harry Streeter hace un pacto con el diablo, quien le quitará no solamente su cáncer mortal, sino también todos los rencores que había sentido en su vida.

Y finalmente, en «Un buen matrimonio» conocemos a Darcy Anderson quien, un día en que su marido está fuera por trabajo, va a buscar pilas al garaje y descubre una caja que él tenía allí escondida. Su contenido es tan horrendo como el ser desconocido que hay dentro de su marido. En un solo instante acabarán felices años de matrimonio.

La crítica ha dicho...
«¿Todo oscuro? ¿Sin estrellas? Mentira. Porque en estos cuatro relatos hay siempre una luz que ilumina las salpicaduras de sangre.»
ABC

«Todo oscuro, sin estrellas es una colección de relatos extraordinaria, terrorífica, sin piedad. El autor está en el cénit de su poder creativo.»
The Telegraph

«Un libro que te obliga a seguir leyendo. King domina tanto la novela corta como la novela muy larga.»
The New York Times
