Publisher's Summary

In this heartfelt novel from #1 New York Times bestselling author Danielle Steel, a young woman with an unforgettable voice fights for the freedom to pursue her dreams.

Iris Cooper has been singing ever since she can remember, hitting the high notes like no one else. At twelve, her father convinces the owner of a bar in Lake City, Texas, to let her perform, and she stuns the audience. In the ensuing years, never staying anywhere for long, they move from one dusty town to the next, her passion for music growing every time she takes the mike in another roadhouse.

But it is not an easy life with her father in charge and using her income to pay for gambling, women, and booze. When she signs on to tour at age eighteen, she resolves to take on a real manager. Yet he exploits her too, and the singers and musicians she tours with are really the only family she has. It is they who give Iris the courage to finally fly free, leave the tour, and follow her dreams.

After years of enduring the hardships of the road, exploitation, and abuse to do what she loves, her big chance comes as her talent soars. But at the top at last, Iris still has to fight every step of the way. In The High Notes, Danielle Steel delivers an inspiring story about finding the strength to stand up for yourself, and your dreams, no matter what it takes.

No more Danielle Steel for me!

No more Danielle Steel books for me. Too many political jabs at conservatives. Just tell us a story and leave your liberal views for the ballot box Ms. Steel.

Nothing new or interesting

This felt like such a canned story stolen from real life events. So Predictable, and I found the narrator’s accents distracting and annoying. My least favorite D.S. book I’ve listened to.
