內容簡介


四個年輕女孩,在五光十色的紐約闖蕩,她們共享工作與生活的甘苦,在人生的轉折點上,該如何選擇?

Claire Kelly還是帕森斯設計學院的學生時,就租下了這個沒有電梯的四樓公寓,它的空間大到可以住下四個人,於是Abby Williams, Morgan Shelby與Sasha Hartman便陸續住了進來。

Claire Kelly夢想成為一個知名的鞋子設計師,無奈的是,她那保守的老闆不准她發揮創意,只願意守住老客人,製作樣式傳統的鞋子。Claire在保住工作與發揮創意之間猶豫不定,她到底該如何抉擇?

Abby Williams不想與富有的家人同住洛杉磯,她想靠一己之力成為一名作家。她迷戀一個在外外百老匯的製作人,這個人處處剝削、壓榨Abby,摧毀她的自信,讓她看不清楚自己在小說創作上的天分。

Morgan Shelby是個在華爾街從事金融工作的女強人,正與一個事業有成的餐廳老闆陷入熱戀,他時時提供好吃的菜給Morgan的室友們。Morgan的人生看似十分順遂,卻老是覺得他的老闆,一個Morgan崇拜的傳奇投資經理人,似乎在謀劃什麼壞事。

Sasha Hartman如今是個沒有玩樂只有工作的婦產科住院醫師,她那光鮮亮麗,老是搭著噴射機工作旅行的超模雙胞胎妹妹,卻總是不斷地在做一些危險的決定。

這四個年輕女性彼此給予安慰,是如家人一般的摯友。不可預期的機會改變了她們的生命之路,她們接受挑戰,面對現實生活中的酸甜苦辣,無可避免地,定會踏上各自不同的人生道路。

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER This vibrant, tender, and moving tale pulses with the excitement of New York City, as Danielle Steel explores twists of fate, and the way that sometimes, in special places, friends can be the family we need most.

They come together by chance in the heart of New York City, four young women at turning points in their lives. Claire Kelly finds the walk-up apartment a spacious loft in Hell s Kitchen. But the aspiring shoe designer needs at least one roommate to manage it. She meets Abby Williams, a writer trying to make it on her own, far away from her successful family in L.A. Four years later, Morgan Shelby joins them. She s ambitious, with a serious finance job on Wall Street. Then Sasha Hartman, a medical student whose identical twin sister is a headline-grabbing supermodel. And so the sprawling space, with its exposed brick and rich natural light, becomes a home to friends about to embark on new, exhilarating adventures.

Frustrated by her ultra-conservative boss, Claire soon faces a career crisis as a designer. Abby is under the spell of an older man, an off-off-Broadway producer who exploits her and detours her from her true talent as a novelist, while destroying her self-confidence. Morgan is happily in love with a successful restaurateur who supplies her roommates with fine food. At her office, she begins to suspect something is off about her boss, a legendary investment manager whom she s always admired. But does she even know him? And Sasha begins an all-work-no-play residency as an OB/GYN, as her glamorous jet-set sister makes increasingly risky decisions.

Their shared life in the apartment grounds them as they bring one another comfort and become a family of beloved friends. Unexpected opportunities alter the course of each of their lives, and as they meet the challenges, they face the bittersweet reality that in time, they will inevitably move away from the place where their dreams began.
