Publisher's Summary

In Danielle Steel's gripping new novel, a reclusive woman opens up her home to her neighbors in the wake of a devastating earthquake, setting off events that reveal secrets, break relationships apart, and bring strangers together to forge powerful new bonds.

Meredith White was one of Hollywood's most recognizable faces. But a personal tragedy cut her acting career short and alienated her from her family. For the last 15 years, Meredith has been living alone in San Francisco with two trusted caretakers. Then, on a muggy late summer day, a massive earthquake strikes Northern California, plunging the Bay Area into chaos. Without a moment's hesitation, Meredith invites her stunned and shaken neighbors into her mostly undamaged home as the recovery begins. 

These people did not even realize that movie star Meredith White was living on their street. Now, they are sharing her mansion, as well as their most closely kept secrets. Without the walls and privacy of their own homes, one by one, new relationships are forged. For every neighbor, there is a story, from the doctor whose wife and children fear him, to the beautiful young woman dating a dishonorable man, to the aspiring writer caring for a famous blind musician.  

In the heart of the crisis, Meredith finds herself venturing back into the world. And thanks to the suspicions and dogged detective work of a disaster relief volunteer, a former military officer named Charles, a shocking truth about her own world is exposed. Suddenly Meredith sees her isolation, her estranged family, and even her acting career in a whole new light. 

Filled with powerful human dramas, Neighbors is a penetrating look at how our world can be upended in a moment. In a novel of unforgettable characters and stunning twists, acts of love and courage become the most powerful forces of all.

Great book and great narration!

Yet, another great read from Ms. Steel . It was a suspenseful unraveling tale, a heartwarming story of betrayal, deception, romance and human connection. I enjoyed hearing about Meredith’s journey going from a reclusive movie star to rebuilding her world and shining in unexpected ways. I also loved Mr. Babson’s voice. I’ve listened to many books on my daily commutes and his narration stands out. Soothing and nicely paced, he brought the characters to life. Enjoyable all around.

not my cup of tea

For its genre it is probably a very good book. It was not the genre I like best, but considering that it was enjoyable to hear.

Outstanding women's fiction from Danielle Steel

Friendship, family drama, love, betrayal... I enjoyed getting to know all the characters and seeing how their lives intertwined. (Trigger warning: there is a domestic violence subplot) Overall I enjoyed the book, another great piece from Daniele Steel. Narration was perfect. The narrator really brought the characters to life and had a great tone that I enjoyed listening to. Will definitely seek out more titles from him.

Enjoyable story

This was a good story, but there was a lot of repetition. Same thing said over and over again.

Last book by Danielle Steel that I will ever read

What a disappointment! This book is so poorly written that I wonder if an editor was involved at all! Not only is the storyline extremely predictable and naive, but the way it was written and the amount of repetition paragraph after paragraph is simply offensive. Narration didn't help to make the book better, it was boring and unconvincing.

Pretty good overall

This was a pretty decent book overall. It’s not one I’d rave about. The sweet parts of the storyline were touching and endearing. The plot twists were dis jarring & abrupt when they occurred...almost out of place. And there were A LOT of repeat phrases, sentences, info that didn’t need to be repeated the way it was, to get the point across. The performer was great & I enjoyed listening to him. The author is a wonderful writer no doubt. Always has been and I’ll continue to be a fan. This just wasn’t at the top of my DS list.

Danielle Steel at her finest!

Great storyline! Loved all the characters. The only thing I didn’t care for was the narrator. No emotions whatsoever. I think a lady would have been a better choice.
