Danielle Steel's 47th bestselling novel is very much about the tides of our times, about what happens when life's unexpected changes and responsibilities in the work place pull two people in different directions, sweeping them into new lives and changed worlds... For fourteen years, Steve and Meredith Whitman have sustained a marriage of passion and friendship- despite the demands of two all-consuming careers. Meredith achieved partnership in one of Wall Street's top firms. Steve, a gifted physician, chose an urban trauma ward over the big money he could have earned elsewhere. Then Meredith is offered an extraordinary opportunity to reach for the brass ring- in San Francisco, three thousand miles away. She is thrilled and surprised when Steve urges her to accept a top position at an exciting young high-tech company. Neither Steve nor Meredith reckoned on the frustrations of a bi-coastal marriage, as Steve's job keeps him in New York for months longer than planned. Weekends together, their lifeline, fall prey to their hectic schedules. Meredith is spending long hours at the office with her boss, charismatic Callan Dow. Steve is working late shifts at the hospital, grabbing an occasional dinner with a new colleague, a doctor raising a daughter on her own. Steve and Meredith have begun living separate lives in increasingly separate worlds. And despite the best of intentions, irresistible forces begin to tear their lives and their hearts apart. With unerring insight, Danielle Steel explores what happens when lives that fit together like delicately balanced puzzles are shifted, changed, and drift apart. Only time can tell who and what they will become. Who survives, how well they survive, and if love survives, is at the core ofIrresistible Forces.

Not vintage Steel. After assserting again and again that she would NEVER cheat on her husband, Meredith, seeking power and wealth sure enough "spreads her legs." A very disappointing story.
