Description:  Amazing Grace by Danielle Steel
            Summary: On a warm May Night in San Francisco, the Ritz-Carlton ballroom shimmers with crystal and silver as a glittering, celebrity-studded crowed gathers for a charity dinner dance.  The evening is perfect-until, just minutes before midnight, the room begins to sway. Glass shatters. And as the lights go out people begin to scream….
            In the earthquake’s aftermath, the lives of four strangers will converge….. Sarah Sloane, the beautiful wife of a financial whiz; Grammy-winning singer Melanie Free, the event’s headline; photographer Everett Carson, a former war correspondent, and Sister Maggie Kent, a nun who knows that there is much work to be done…..
            As the city staggers back to lie, a chain reaction of extraordinary events will touch each of these survivors.  
~Throughout these enthralling pages, Danielle Steele creates a stunning array of contrasts…. It is her most powerful and life affirming novel to date~
