    Turning Point is a highly charged, gripping novel from the world s favourite storyteller about how suddenly life can change for all of us, and that we might find what we re looking for in the most unlikely of places

    In Danielle Steel s powerful novel, four San Francisco trauma doctors the best and brightest in their field confront exciting and exacting new challenges, both personally and professionally, when given a rare opportunity

    Bill Browning heads the trauma unit at San Francisco s busiest emergency room With his ex wife and daughters in London, he immerses himself in his work and lives for the little time he can spend with his children A rising star at her teaching hospital, 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, 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 medical centre, but he refuses to let anyone get too close, determined to remain unattached forever

    These exceptional doctors are chosen for an honour and a unique project to work with their counterparts in Paris in a mass casualty training programme As professionals they will gain invaluable knowledge, but 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 make harder choices than they have ever faced before with consequences that will last a lifetime.

two failing in her struggles to balance work and home, and Wendy is the other woman, a mistress of six years wanting for herself Although each of the doctors have their own personal dilemmas they are still on top of things at work when traumatic events happen When a huge tragedy happens overseas all four of the doctors are approached to form a task force to team with Parisian doctors training in emergency response spending a month in Paris before the team returns to the U.S for training After reading this one I couldn t help but compare it to Grey s Anatomy a bit as they are a bit similar in nature Being a Danielle Steel title the story does focus on the doctors and their lives and relationships than it does on the action that surrounds their jobs but there is just enough of those real life events to give it a dramatic edge to the romance just as with the television show I think both long time fans and any newer readers will enjoy this one if picking it up with solid writing and an action packed drama filled plot I received an advance copy from the publisher via NetGalley.For reviews please visit flag 37 likesLike see review View all 3 comments Jan 09, 2019 Suzanne rated it

relationship or marriage Wendy Jones works in the trauma surgical critical care center at Stanford and has had a six year relationship with the married Jeffrey Hunter Wendy looks forward to their Wednesday evenings, but holidays are a lonely time for her On Christmas, a fire breaks out in a major hotel flooding all their hospitals with victims In Paris, which is San Francisco s sister city, terrorists bomb luxury stores and a movie theater causing a massive number of causalities In the New Year, these four doctors are given the opportunity to journey to Paris to participate in a four week mass casualty training program Four physicians from Paris will then come to San Francisco so the two countries can learn from each other The four San Franciscan doctors bond immediately and look forward to their time in Paris When a tragedy strikes a Paris school, it causes the doctors to re evaluate their lives and the choices they have made Turning Point is a realistic story that lets us see tragic events from the point of trauma doctors and emergency services I thought Turning Point was well written with a steady flow I found Turning Point to be a compelling novel I was drawn into the story wanting to see what choices the doctors would make Going to Paris is a wonderful opportunity for each doctor, but two of them must make a sacrifice Stephanie is leaving behind an angry husband and two distraught children However, this is a once in a lifetime opportunity and it is an honor to be picked to participate Wendy is giving up her Wednesday nights with her lover She has made great sacrifices to be with him, but she is beginning to wonder if he feels the same way about her I will admit that her whining did grate on me after a while I could have done with less of Wendy waxing on about Jeffrey and their relationship Tom is looking forward to the Paris nightlife while Bill will be able to see his girls every weekend Tom is a charmer and his character provided levity to the book Tragedy has a way of making people evaluate their lives as we see in Turning Point It was interesting to learn about the roll of trauma doctors and how emergency services operates in another country I did find some of the medical information presented to be intricate and I would find myself skimming through that paragraph Other medical knowledge imparted was straightforward and easy to understand There is, of course, romance in the story but it is light I liked the Parisian medical professionals and how their stories mixed with the doctors from San Francisco It is amazing how chaos can bring about change I am giving Turning Point 4 out of 5 stars I liked it Those readers who are addicted to Grey s Anatomy will enjoy reading Turning Point I look forward to Ms Steel s

destiny and fate plays their game all we ordinary mortals can do is sit tight and pray that we don t fall off from this rollercoaster called life.Turning Point revolves around the lives of four American doctors who gets united by fate and becomes friends for life Bill Browning, the head of the trauma unit of San Francisco s busiest emergency room and has two loving daughters, Pip and Alex and an ex wife Stephanie Lawrence, the ambitious doctor of UCSF who tries to juggle her workaholic nature and a husband and two young boys Wendy Jones, the Harvard Graduate who is trapped in a dead end relationship with a married colleague Lastly, Tom Wylie who is famous for his way with the ladies and a great doctor.When this four extremely different individual goes on a trip to Paris for a medical venture they come back as a changed person.Danielle Steel wrote yet another heart wrenching tale which includes some very ordinary people who faces some extraordinary and life altering situations.Steel s portrayal of these protagonists is surreal The plot is cleverly twisted to make a connecting link between them.The random terrorism and dreadful incidents mentioned in the book can accelerate heartbeat of any sane human being.I think this played a very crucial object in the story so as to emphasize the chaotic situation and connect them with the four protagonists making them realize their life s mistakes in a heartbeat.The ending was a signature Danielle Steel Unlike some authors who believes all is well that ends well, Steel ties all loose ends but leaves the readers to imagine the happy ending in the lives of the characters according to their own free will flag 2 likesLike see review Jan 30, 2019 Jeanne rated it it was ok A bit flat for Danielle Steel, in my opinion

and did appreciate some of the characters I would have liked a little detail once the group all returned to the United States it felt lopsided with the time spent in Paris And I felt like the ending was rushed again, focus on the group in the US might have helped that It s a relatively short book, so there was room to expand the storyline, IMO Bottom line a decent 3.5 star read for me which had a

Francisco Each of these surgeons professional lives is near perfect, however their personal lives are a mess Bill is all by himself, since his ex wife and daughters are living in London, and he immerses himself in his work while desperately missing his children Stephanie constantly puts her work above her family, barely seeing her young children and frustrating her stay at home husband Wendy s life outside work is defined by her relationship with her married colleague, and is constantly frustrated by his indifference to their relationship and his reluctance to end his marriage Tom, an over the top womaniser, is the only one satisfied with his life, but deep down he knows his life lacks connections as he refuses to let anyone to get close to him.Tragic circumstances in two separate cities will have unexpected impacts on the lives of all four of these surgeons Following a terrorist attack in Paris and a devastating fire in San Francisco, both cities respective governments organise a multi week exchange of trauma surgeons in order to help both cities learn from each other s experiences Bill, Stephanie, Wendy and Tom are each chosen by their respective hospitals to represent the San Francisco delegation and travel to Paris, leaving their lives at home behind.Once in Paris the American surgeons find a deep friendship and camaraderie with each other and the French team, as they have the chance to socialise with those rare people who understand the personal challenges their medical careers can cause As the San Francisco teams learn about the French medical and emergency response system, another terrible act of violence hits the people of Paris As both the American and French teams deal with the consequences of these horrific actions, these surgeons find their lives impacted in unexpected ways How will these events change them, and how will they impact those around them I have to admit that this is not the usual sort of book I would check out, and Danielle Steel is not an author I would usually go for I much prefer novels with a lot action, violence or comedy than romance or intense drama However, I have always had a bit of a soft spot for medical fiction, and I thought that the summary of Turning Point sounded fairly compelling I also thought that looking into Turning Point would be an interesting change of pace for me, so in the name of broadening my horizons and mixing up my reviews, I decided to check it out I have to say I did get into this amazing story, and enjoyed the dramatic narrative that unfolded within it.Click link for

and started reading And reading Like all Danielle Steel looks, the plot completely sucks you in I barely moved until the book was finished but it was still hot outside.Steel s books always capture characters with something very interesting in their lives Turning Point is about a group of emergency department doctors in San Francisco who specialise in trauma Their lives revolve around their work, which is unpredictable and demanding They are at the top of their game None of the four are coping well outside work though Bill is mourning a failed marriage and the relocation of his daughters to the other side of the world Stephanie is trying to be a good wife and mother, but it s at the cost of her husband s career and he s not happy Wendy sits around waiting for her married lover to show up on a whim and Tom takes the title of biggest Ladies Man What do they have in common They are all selected to work on an exchange program with trauma doctors in Paris It s going to be an exchange of skills and information But it turns out to be much drama than any of them first thought Terrorist attacks are only the beginning as their French hosts complicate the doctors lives and have them asking questions.What I really liked about Turning Point is that the characters are all strongly flawed and the story is their arc to redemption They work through their problems not always in the most appropriate ways and learn a lot about themselves and their loved ones They are all taken well outside their comfort zones and forced to paddle like mad For Tom, this is pretty easy but for Stephanie, this is particularly difficult Her problems of love, children and fidelity are not clear cut and the suffering she experiences in trying to make a decision that pleases everyone are done realistically The reader may not always like what she does, but she tries to do what she thinks will hurt the least The story wraps up nicely with all the doctors getting their happy ever after in ways that wouldn t have been possible before the trip to Paris It s also a good summary of the way major emergencies are dealt with in Paris and San Francisco It probably wasn t intended, but I found it fascinating how both dealt with large scale emergencies efficiently, in quite different ways I enjoyed this foray into the medical world by Danielle Steel it s tough, yet tender with a compelling storyline.Thank

family Wendy Jones is a leading trauma doctor at Stanford but her personal life is in a rut that she doesn t seem to be able to overcome She s boxed herself into a corner as the mistress to a cardiac

I found not only annoying, but that they in some way detracted from the story were Stephanie and Gabriel Other than being good medical professionals they have no likable qualities She is dismissive of her husband and his little job, absolutely thinks she is better than he is, believes that because she lived through her dad being a dr and never being around that it is fine for her boys too and that they ll be fine and won t even remember her not being around And she gives so little credit to her husband for picking up the slack Just because her father was never around and she is fine doesn t make her behavior or mothering okay I see lots of therapy in their future and few visits to their mom when they are grown men Does her job save lives yes Does it give her the right to be so dismissive no To be treated equally doesn t require that she has to take on the persona of a 1950 s man Gabriel is an opportunistic unlikable man He is honest and that goes in the plus side He wants her to give up everything Her life in the US, her ability to practice medicine and he doesn t want to divorce his wife because that isn t the way the French do things Seriously They actually deserve each other and Stephanie s husband deserves better Aside from those two I adored the book The characters all interesting and smart We get to see them transform from chapter to chapter in lovely ways They grow as

decided to come home and change the course of their lives.Then it was time for the Paris team of 4 Doctors to visit San Francisco and find out what they could learn in a different environment about emergency procedures and techniques.What a combustion when the 8 Doctors got back together with their life changing events After surviving a major medical emergency, it was like a wake up call, they knew what was important in each of their lives and how to go about it and make the change a reality.I could hardly put this book down, it made me see what truly mattered in our lives and to appreciate
