As a partner at one of New York's most prestigious law firms, Alexandra Parker barely manages to juggle husband, career, and the three-year-old child she gave birth to at forty.  But Alex feels blessed with her life and happy marriage--until lightning strikes her.  Suddenly a routine medical check-up turns her world upside down when tests reveal shattering news.

Sam Parker is a star venture capitalist, a Wall Street whiz kid, and is as proud of his longtime marriage to Alex as he is of his successful career.  As a major player in New York's financial world, Sam is used to being in control--until he is caught off guard by Alex's illness.  Terrified of losing his wife and family, and haunted by ghosts from his past, Sam is unable to provide any kind of emotional support to Alex.

Unable to cope with her needs, Sam takes his distance from her, and almost overnight she and Sam become strangers.  As lightning strikes them yet again, Sam's promising career suddenly explodes in disaster, and his very life and identity are challenged.  With their entire future hanging in the balance, Alex must decide what she feels for Sam, if life will ever be the same for them again, or if she must move on without him.

What happens to people when every aspect of their lives and well-being is threatened?  In Lightning, Danielle Steel tells the story of a family thrust into uncertainty and explores whether the bonds of love and marriage can withstand life's most unexpected bolts of lightning.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Strange title ...... at page 100 I was bored because of the constant repeating of things already written in the previous pages. I may finish this book eventually but I am not presently inclined to return to it any time soon.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Genius insightful reader This has probably been covered many times but in regard to works of fiction I feel there should still be a responsibility to get somes facts correct...especially when dealing with "real" situations. Since many people derive their knowledge and therefore opinions about firearms from what they read and see in movies it would seem important, unless the author is TRYING to promote a negative viewpoint about firearms, to at least make an effort to have his-her facts straight. Hence the issue of the Uzi with the 400, FOUR HUNDRED, round magazine. There is no such thing. For one thing it would be about 10 feet in length and weigh several pounds. There are some "drum" mags, round and about the size of soup bowl, that can hold up to 100 rounds but even those are not very practical. I tho at first that it was a typo but the author kept referring to them. All writers and movie directors have great power to affect public opinion...for good or bad. The bookmis still great and I have read it several times. Did good job with the hypothetical time travel altho it gets a bit hard to follow. This concludes my sermon for today...Amen. Memo to everyone: QUIT SHOOTING EACH OTHER. 400 ROUND MAGAZINES OR NOT. L8r.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very touching - stays with you! This book is one of my favorites of Danielle Steel (if not my all time favorite) because of the attention to detail with this book. Danielle Steel took a horrific situation and was able to convey all sides of it. Denial, hurt, anger and so many other emotions - far too many to list. This book was incredible and I have read it so many times my copy is falling apart! I would strongly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys reading!
