When a high-powered gallery owner collides with an offbeat artist, it's the perfect recipe for disaster. Sasha is widowed and knows she was lucky to have been married to a wonderful man. Liam's impulsive behavior has helped tear his marriage apart. While Sasha has been building her Parisian art gallery into an intercontinental success, Liam has been growing into one of the most striking young painters of his time. Utterly unalike--and with a nine-year age difference between them--the two are brought crashing together by the miracle of art. But can they juggle a secret, somewhat scandalous relationship?
For Sasha, it's a matter of keeping Liam hidden from her grown children and well-heeled clientele, as she commutes between New York and Paris. For Liam, it's about creating chaos out of order and bringing out the wild streak Sasha barely knows she has. That is, until tragedy alters Liam's life--and forces a sacrifice that they couldn't have expected. But from the snow falling on the Tuilleries to the joy of eating ice cream by candlelight, the artist and the art dealer have tasted perfection. And giving up now might just be the most impossible thing of all.
With unerring insight into the hearts of men and women--and into the soul of the artist--Danielle Steel takes us into a world of glamour and genius, priceless art and dazzling creativity. Her most compelling novel to date, IMPOSSIBLE weaves an extraordinary tale of love and compromise, of taking chances and counting blessings.
